Ah, the black ZX, yes, it "was" a Volcane, it was never mine though, my bro bought it with major front end collision damage with the intention of rebuilding it, as he's always wanted a Volcane.
But bro is a talentless idiot with cars and never did anything with it.
I think the car has now been crushed, but I could be wrong..
It was removed to another building he rents elsewhere some time ago..

It was repairable, but only by someone that isn't a total numpty, which alas my bro is..

All its fit for!
That wasn't mine either, the farmers kid hoon about in it from time to time, and occasionally drive it in to dead cows, of which there was an alarming number, but after one of thier number mullered my valver I say "ha good riddance you evil grass eating ba$tard$"!

They aint mine either! The 22TRS and the Turbo 1 are owned by my mate JD, I just get to do all the work on them he is too incompetant to do himself, which is most of it!

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...

Doc - I like your engine 'crane' !!! But, in that first pic, what's the white car behind - it's not a Visa Decap is it (windscreen looks about right, but I think it might be a 205 convertible)?
I NEED a BX TD.

Yep, it's a 205CJ.
There's a long and painful story attached to that car, and it will soon be baked bean tins.

That went to a bloke called Bill who is living in Reading (BillS of this forum).
My White TZD Turbo was scraped by Mr B and was truly horrible.
The Red TXD lives on near Charlotte's
My Rover Metro (surprisingly) still lives and has not succumbed to HGF yet an I see it most days in Blackpool.
Other than that, with the exception of the Xantia every one of my cars and motorbikes is off the road or scrapped. Weird that.
I currently have the Ex Mr. B TZD Turbot
