Spotted this BX 16vish and said its got GTi wheels on it... and it looks deisel smoked and wait... a D on the back... sureit looks familiar. Cant put my finger on it... looked around for usual suspects but couldnt see anyone.
After getting home and checking a few galleries I found out it was Vannys!

If only my brain worked faster!

Hmm interesting :D
Vanny was moving this weekend so should have been rather busy - how dare he take time off LOL!
Might be a day or two before he gets his internet back up as well though

Cheers

I've moved to Coventry, but have only moved a suitcase of stuff.

I was at mallory marshalling the Tin Snail racing (2CV racing is fucking scary sh*t, they where physically pushing each other around the track at one point!!!!!)

It is from a 1980's "tuning" catalouge.

IIRC, you could buy the GTi style spoiler as an upgrade for lesser models.

Cituning I think, open to correction.
