Cxs work!!!

A better option for the long term! And my Croisette is silver!!!!

Fabulous car! It works, unlike my Scraptiva did.

It was a pleasure going to the weighbridge with the Activa earlier this week!!
:lol: :lol:

Unfortunately I didn't have a camera to hand!

I tell you what Dean, I'll take your Activa in Part Ex as well! An offer you can't refuse!!

Mine is heavier than that! Full years ticket, and all the welding has been done.

Good colour to mask the rust though!!

Xantias rust too!

If you were sitting in that CX at the time the car would rise around you leaving you and your seat on the floor :lol:

I wonder how many decades it'd take a Xantia to rust that much :lol:
