New to frenchcarforum but not to french cars.

Post by Richiejh » 04 Jul 2011, 20:43

Hi, I've just joined frenchcarforum!
I've had various french cars throughout the years after my dad owned a few CX's.

I've had a 1984 BX 16 TRS (crashed)

Then another 1983 BX 16 TRS (bought as a bodyshell and resurected using bits from the 1984) This car was converted from a mark one to a mark two internally and externally.

A 1991 BX GTi 4x4

A 1986 CX 2.5td familiae (borrowed from dad for a few months)

A 1994 Peugeot 405 TDLX

A 1991 AX GT & a 1L AX

A peugeot 406 coupe 3l V6

A 2007 C4 2l HDi exclusive

and now a 2005 C8 2.2HDi SX

I've never listed them before! It's a surprise i've never found this site before.

I've driven a 2CV once years ago, does that count?

I'm down in the sunny south west in Taunton, Somerset.

P.s

a 1993 ZX diesel and
a 2001 pug 306 hdi estate should be on the list too

I suppose you could count work vans (2 Berlingo's, a pug partner and 2 C15D's
