Names to faces > Members and their cars

Post by m_2975 »

G'Day all,

Following on from the thread "Who have you met so far?" I haven't met nor seen anyone!

I'm an avid BX fan and unfortunately there are hardly any fans here in Australia (Ok, there is two or three...and G'Day to them!).


I'd like to put faces to the names so how about photos of you with your BX?

I know that some of you may be shy and some would rather not, but it's in the spirit of this club for all to contribute so how about it?


I'll start mine off with me washing my TZI.

Come on....Get in the spirit!!!!


I'll get out today and take a pic of me next to my beloved GTI.

And thanks in advance to all who participate....it's not just for me but for others too.

Here's the only pic I can find of me and my BX. Not very recent and, no, it's not a left hooker - my girlfriend was trying to emulate a similar picture for a photography project.

Ah, here's a recent one of me driving the GSA, all hirsute 8)

Cheers,

Mark.

I think you'll find mate that patchy red beards are for winners! Said completly without bias of course!

And Mark still looks like Vanny!!!!! :wink:

Oh, and the headlining on the GS is getting a little strained above your head mate!
Top marks for a fine example of "le Goatie"!
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...

Ok Tim,

Thanks very much anyway....I can get an idea of you by the car you are cleaning. Keep it up.....All BX's should be pampered.

It's only a car Michael.
Both of mine are lucky if they get washed once a year, and they're both battered.

But at least you have the expertice to fix the bodgy paint work.

I have to treat mine with gloves cause forstly it would cost me a fortune over here to get work done and the other thing is I don't know who to trust.

I'm very sceptical and have a high attention to detail.

I might have the equipment and ability, but I'll probably never do it.

I like them battered, it adds that "enjoyed" look to the car.

The only person I trust with my car is me. The if it goes wrong, I can only blame myself. Or poxy french engineering, which of course it always is!

I wouldn't complain mate :wink: :lol: :lol:

As Doc says Michael, if you want to see Vanny just look at Mark's second picture.
Vauxhall apologist.
