He'd do well to get rid of the bin price. It'll put people off it.

I've had a few of them now.
Infact I still have the very first RD Mk2 P1 I ever had, and indeed my first BX, but now it looks like this:

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...

I managed to wreck the engine on my first BX and my next (and favourite one) has apparantly been scrapped :cry:

Oh aye, I agree Tim but for the non-believers they'll be wanting a newer Mundano/Vectra/Golf/Passatt etc for that money and will assume they are better motors.
And as we all know to assume is to make an ass out of 'u' and 'me'.

Basically this: bought by me at auction. Ran ran in it for a while and it was the start of my love for BXs. Sold for an obscene profit and about 18 months later bought back. Used it again and loved it again. Tried to service it and broke it. Sold it to Vanny's mate at less then scrap price. Vanny mended it, his mate broke it and it got scrapped I believe. 1.7TGD n/a diesel, took me and the family all over the shop and ran on fresh air.
