Yeah Keith was asking us what we thought should go in there on the 16v site.
I was a bit dissapointed in honesty, although the initial description at the top of the page was good.

Just spotted this threadafter starting a new topic about this. Dohh!

It's a fairly even-handed article but my cynical side says it's also another attempt to enlarge the "classic" market, as if it needed enlarging: the BX remains a practical, reliable everyday car, not one to put in a glass case.
Occasionally constrained by geography. When not driving, can rely on ferry, two wheels and musclepower when a couple of miles as the crow flies would become a round-road-trip ten times the distance.

Because a car is a 'Classic' it does not mean it needs to be kept in a glass case. I have friends who own cars which are more accepted as classics and would never dream of the glass case treatment, they drive their cars at every opperchancity!!!!!!

Would it do the BX any harm to have a 'Hyped' Classic status?

Bloody hell, its a cracking model! You dont see many BX models.

I personally love the BX because of the way you can fit 5 people in it, all their luggage, fix it yourself, its interesting and they drive so well, oh and they feel like a small car when you're throwing them about!

Dont get me wrong i like to keep my BX's in tip top condition but oh my god they get used!
Over and out from me
