To remember it by

Post by Kitch »

The BX is now unemployed until further notice :(

Can't afford to run it while owning the TVR so it's sitting the final days of it's MOT out in a garage. Its a bit sad really, as I love driving it and being involved with it in some way but for now finances are forcing it off the road. It's not going anywhere though, I'll pick up where I left off as soon as I get it back on the road.

I made this little vid (1st attempt before you think it looks a bit amateur!) to remember it by. Wasn't completely what I had in mind but it'll do!

Always good to watch BX's in action :lol:

Stiltskin. Good man.
Nice work that chap.
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...

Nice indeed !
That bridge looks familiar.

It's a pity they don't scrap the road tax and put it on the fuel tax instead --- That way it would be pay as you drive road tax.

Did you get the power steering sorted in the end ?

Didn't think that was amateurish at all, very cool, and I didn't realise it was your car used in that feature before :oops:

Doc: Stiltskin.....legde.

Ellevie: If you're really quick you might even see all the MURDER signs up everywhere. It's literally a minute from my front door :shock:

Mat: Sorry, it's sat in a garage going mouldy :lol:

nstarmore: It was amateurish compared to what I wanted to do! Seems easy until you try it! My car was used in that feature, although it's all pretty forgettable! I used to be proud....now I reckon I could probably do better myself....at least the car moves :lol:

First song I ever learned to play on the old Axe was Inside, followed by the rest of the album.

After my attempts at making a video that seems like the work of a pro dude, really, it's very good.

Well yes and no mate.....a BX TD is not just as fun to drive and 37mpg isn't a burden in my opinion :P

I even like the way it looks:

Maybe at national. May bring either girlfriend's Saxo (it's a Citroen afterall, and there weren't any other VTR's there last year! :lol: ) Or possibly the TVR if its a nice weekend.
