Flyered two BXs in western Ukraine

Post by Oscar »

Just got back from a field trip to western Ukraine. Saw two sorry-looking BXs, one in Khmelnitskii ( a typical post-Soviet shithole) and another in Ivano-Frankivsk, a very pretty town in the Carpathian hills.

Flyered both. I think our partners now regard me as barking mad as I went dashing off pulling out pen and paper to leave notes.

I wonder whether we'll extend our membership to Ukraine?

About 2 months ago, I RAN after a BX...

Also, whilst watching Spaced with my friend Andrew, there are two episodes in series one with the same white BX in them, and in one of these episodes a green XM VSX is parked behind it. I literally screamed and dropped my crisps.

And don't mention the time I saw a 16v during a driving lesson and almost went off the road.

I really do believe I need help.

Sounds perfectly normal to me. Ask my kids. I do the same with Xantias :P

I know those episodes of Spaced.

There are two BXs in an episode of Green Wing too - I'll leave you to find out which one :D

Wasn't there a BX in an episode of Phoenix Nights as well?

A guy walked into the bar, stole the TV off the wall, walked out and got in the BX and drove off.

They used the red one because the white coat did not show up as well with him on teh white one. The director had a white one with GRP bonnet, which is why they used it.
