The Citroen is dead... Long live the Citroen!
« on: 14, June, 2013 - 13:09:54 »
It is with great sadness that I must announce the passing of our beloved Xantia. After a long and exceptionally painful period of illness it finally went to meet it's maker when the turbo gasped it's last a few days ago. However! My wife found us a new car... A Xsara Estate, W reg, 11 months test, 2 months ticket, a few scuffs but none particularly severe... Runs great, for £250 :-) So! Now need to get roof bars and a towbar to start taking the C5's to shows again lol!

Well it's a bit camera shy at the moment, but I'll talk to it tomorrow and see what I can do ;-)

I'm a big fan of "banger-nomics" , buying cheaper older cars is a fun way of trying to beat the system  ;).

Sounds like you came up trumps mate  8)

Well I have to admit that the main reason for not being able to spend much on a new car was due to spending too much on C5's...  ::)

Right! Photos! Here's the deceased member of the family on the way to it's burial...



Poor old girl... really did us proud and sorely missed...

And here's the latest addition to the troop!

Well... for £250 you can't go wrong lol  8)

Plus, when it gets the 18" alloys, blacked out windows, big bore exhaust and "new car scent" Magic Tree it'll look even better  ;D And yes, I'm joking lol! I'm just after a set of roof bars and a towbar so that I can start carting the Sinclairs to shows again...
