Has anyone seen my old X1/9?

Just joined the forum for help on our drowned Panda, but caught site of the X1/9 forum which brought back memories of my first car, a black X1/9, registration BBX 7V.

I bought her in the summer of 1993 in Milford Haven, West Wales, after getting my licence and owned her for about 3 months before I had to sell her to buy my train ticket home :-( There was no way she'd have made it to Cambridge - dead starter, so always had to park on a hill, no reverse, a cooling system that didn't and one popped-up head lamp, one stuck down.

But I still remember the whine of the gearbox, the low seats, the smell of hot engine and that snarly exhaust :-)

Now that I'm old enough to be able to buy train tickets without selling a car, I'm wondering what's become of her - probably gone to some scrapheap or rusting in the corner of a farmyard, but just in-case someone knows better...

according to the DVLA it hasn't been taxed since 01/01/1994.

I think it may have given its parts to help the cause then off to the great scrapper in the sky......
