One for you Ken?

Not a BX but seems very fairly priced to me, especially as a brand new £300 clutch is included...

Well, if you can do a clutch job yourself, it looks like a tempting car! Good ad.

Run far far far far away, across the shire and into the doors of Mordar..

The 2.5 was crap anyway, the 2.1 with the EPIC pump was a much better engine.
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...

Apparently you're talking 22 hours, with a two post lift and a heavy duty engine crane. That ruled it out for me....

22 hours book time, but you can do them in less.
But frankly it's as much fun as power sanding your own arse.

I can think of better ways to spend a weekend to be perfectley honest..
