RETROPOLIS Easter2019 #2

Ok, I had to research this one. The Simca in question does claim to be a 'Le Mans Coupé' I think it is a figment of someone's imagination because it is the only example to be found on internet. I haven't time to search old Le Mans entry lists 8) I have even a photo of its construction, which appears...

RETROPOLIS Easter2019 #2

I think the best was in the car park, we need a photo of Candy :mrgreen: Nice report Ian, in the absence of a Scimitar I'll take the Cobra thanks. Or the Marcos - this is a well known example. The TVR is tasty too. The Simca is not a Le Mans (which was a much later CG model I think) but a late '30's...

Norwegian visitor at Golfe-Juan

MENSUEL DU THEATRE DE LA MER, GOLFE-JUAN (06) As usual the gloomy weather forecast was wrong and we had a fine morning for the monthly meeting at Golfe-Juan. Having covered very nearly 5 km to get there I could only stand in reverence in front of the BMW 3.0CS which arrived from Norway :shock: There...

Roger's Scimitars - New Season Starts!

There are two more Jags behind, and a Scimitar!

Yes I love the V8-250.
I actually had a Jaguar version but the Daimler is better.
I expect it rusts just as quickly though :roll:

Oops, sorry it is apparently the rear side window seals.

Any ideas on these, I have never even looked closely at them.

Stuck distributor

Yes, as I have been known to say, WD40 is not a penetrating oil / unseizing fluid.
PlusGas is not available here but Bardhal penetrating fluid is radical (and expensive).

Rear screen seals

Robert Bonetto asks for advice on fitting new rear screen seals : I have a SE6A and I have the seals of the rear windows which are damaged with important entries of water. So I ordered a set of seals at Graham Walker and asked my coachbuilder to change them. However, he does not dare to start becaus...
