Captain Slow saying hi

Post by Captain Slow » 10 Aug 2012, 18:26

I'm new to these forums.

For the last 4 years I have been driving a 156 GTA, which is now to be sold due to the imminent arrival of junior slow. I decided I needed to be much more tomorrow I'm off to collect a very tidy series 1 XM, with full leather etc. It has been looked after and covered less than 80k.

My train ticket is booked, and the cash is in my hand. I'm ready to travel from Southampton to Ipswich to collect it in the morning.

Prior to this, I have also owned a phase 1 xsara vts, a phase 1 xantia activa and a 1989 bx estate, which currently resides in my dads barn. This is partly owned by kitch who I believe is also a member on here.

It has been some time since I have owned a Citroen that rides on LHM, but I'm looking forward to my adventure.

Welcome Simon.

Check Vince's thread in the blogs section for an interesting XM account. Hope all goes well for you on the journey home (and afterwards).

If at first you don't succeed, parachuting probably isn't for you.

Ay up!

I've never bought anything but an LHM sprung machine. Currently on my 6th Citroen! 5 BXs and 1 Xantia, though two of the BXs were bought for spares.
