I'll sort some pics out of said weekend shortly as our official BXClub.co.uk photographist has buggered off home with the camera :roll: Anyways, I concur with Jon, Marty's BX is probably the sweetest I've ever driven, what a car 8) 8)

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

Look a cracker. Front bumper needs colour coding but that is outweighed by the fact you've got non-genuine BX wheel trims which look miles better than the standard efforts!
Has Mrs Marty forgiven him for buying it yet? :lol:

Its not hard to see why I dont fit in a Rover Metro. I need to drop my gut (not drop my guts, which I have no trouble doing):roll:

Many thanks to Jon for all his sterling work and Dave for giving me the lift down there. - Jon - You REALLY need to move further north....

Car now has 12 mths tax too.

Jon is being too kind and neglects to mention the fact that when said "avid owner!" was putting bumper back on he managed to break a lug with his cack handedness... Also that this was the third time the blower had been apart and cries of "dont touch that again you Jonah..." hung in the air! :lol:
