Good pictures! I can't help but laugh at that name 'Collection!'
If a special edition BX with this name had been sold in the UK, I'm sure there would have been jokes about it. The most obvious, if unwarranted, would be that it showed the scrapman which car to take away...

Just about very TV news item I've seen about abandoned cars in the UK seems to include a clip of a Citroen BX, normally in pretty sad condition.

Outrageous typecasting!
Relying on two wheels and musclepower since the last BX (or any car) had to go.

Larvely Chintz interior on the BX Cottage m'dear (I have seen it in all its magnificence ) - but it's an established Citroen special edition name that'd been used on a couple of other models before.

Strange how it never crossed the channel - inspires thoughts of the BX "Frottage" and suchlike ... better stop there in the name of decency.
