I got a new BX! Rare one too....

Post by Kitch »

Can you spot it? (Hint: On the far left!)

16RS Evasion. Got it off ebay and managed to break the roof rail straight away. But it comes with a spare! Check out the mudflap with the little reflectors too:

Its pretty good, in fact very good for the few quid it cost. Sadly the overall shape is a little wrong, its too fat at the back.

And a front row just for Billy:

Careful with the roofrails :lol:

Having just re-read that, I meant a 1989 16RS estate is rare, not that model. There are loads on ebay!

My plan is to sort the wheeltrims on that one. The little dots around the outside were silver on mk2's, black on mk1's. So I wanna colour them in.

I might buy another and try to change the colour to silver 8)

Love the guitar Kitch! The cars aint bad either!

I'd like a display cabinet full of cars, but I want real cars in it, oh, and I'd need a bigger living room :roll:

Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

They are a nice set it has to be said...like the classics, and the SD1s. The Scorpio is an intersesting choice :shock: and 4 Vaux Cavs...think Billy will be your best mate!! No DS tho' dude...??? Anality is no bad thing with cars to be honest - I was meticulous with my Alpha 155 Cloverleaf airfix model...if I was brave I'd even be tempted to have a real one.....

Are these play-able with? My boy would love a red BX like his dads - he is quite gentle with toys... :)
