El BX Club!

Post by toddao »

Think it's the Spanish BX Club - some extraordinary photos of BXs! ( In various states) :shock:

Wow! (again)

It features one of my photoshopped renderings of a WRC BX! Fame at last...

I think this is brilliant, take the rear spoiler off and the bottom front splitters then change the 90's 3 spokes for some nice BBS's and I honestly think there could be something in that, I might be the only one mind :?

Most of the rest is awful apart from this familiar looking mk1 :)

That Estate I reckon was once a Heuliez but with Muskateer type body kit now added. It looks striking though the interior is a bit over-cooked.
There's also a 'real' BX cabriolet that looks like a golf cart and a shaved and chopped BX in the old Mercury lead-sled style! How were you able to lift these pictures out of that Spanish gallery of horrors Nic and post them here?
It makes one realise that there are a lot of BXs out there - some more abused than others! One day all the European BX clubs must come together for a meeting- the UK division seems to be the least prone to modification whereas the Spanish certainly seem to need a lot of UHU to keep their cars together! :D

I thought it could be a Heuliez, the interior is a bit OTT I agree.

To insert pictures all you need to do is:

[img]insert%20URL%20of%20picture,%20which%20you%20can%20get%20from%20right%20clicking%20on%20the%20image,%20going%20to%20properties%20and%20copying%20it%20from%20there[/img]

Judging by the rest of the spanish Modifying scene some of these pictures do not suprise me.

I did see the chopped BX, which I found interesting especially since it looks like he's covering the area not being used in what looks like astroturf!

No problem, little things like that make all the difference when trying to describe something :D

That, Kermit my old bean, is the fabled Tailblazer. It was an authentique Citroen accessorie! They have now all either been lost to rear end shunts (Stuart :cry: ) or have faded to bu**ery. Find a good one and you are very lucky indeed!

Here's some more dope from the Spanish BX Club - using my new found skills of grabbing photos - thanks Nic. I'm mildly proud that they appropriated the pic of my TRD! 8) Viva L'Espana! And Happy Easter BX Lovers! ^^bx> beers

That last one is curiously forlorn...

Will I ever see a BX4TC in the metal, I wonder?
