    Black BX being crushed

    Spoke to dad & he was told a black BX turned up in the metal scrap yard, adjacent to his workshop last week.
    It's due to be turned into scrap metal & may perhaps already be.
    If anyone is SERIOUSLY interested please let me know as soon as possible so I can save it.
    There is a possibility it is no longer with us.
    All we know, & this is from a non-cit person, that it's black, looks like dads old BX (shape) & the engine is a no goer.
    It's in Tamworth.

    Get it checked out FAST!!!

    The only Black BX that I'm aware of was a 16Valve with the black & red Monza interior that was a private import & was supposedly around the Noosa area a few years (3) ago.

    If it's that, it's definitely worth saving. They reckoned it was a pretty top kind of a car; how did it end up at a crushers? Has it been in a bingle?
    To my knowledge, I don't think black BXs were ever imported into Australia, yet in the UK that seems to be their favourite colour.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    Alan, if we get it out it has to be taken away immediately.
    These guys are short on space & would rather crush to get it out of the way.
    I don't want it & dad no longer lives in Tamworth so there's no where to store it.

    Bob is near Tamworth and would have the ability to pick up the car with C35 and trailer. Check your PMs for contact.

    Dad spoke with the metal place & found out it was a Renault, not a BX.
