My Ss1 came from SGT at maidenhead and my robin from RMG and I used Ron Parkinson at Mark's Tey for repairs anbd millwards at Newmarket.
My Ti also came from SGT, perhaps not when new, but certainly at some point.

AC 3000 me

Agreed, that ad's highly suspect. One to avoid.

AC 3000 me

Always liked the AC. Been a while since I've seen one for sale, but I thought prices had risen higher than that. Sounds like a good time to buy - if you can find one.

1974 Dealers list

Good to see Mercury Motors in Fife mentioned in the 1989 dealers list. I viewed an 18800Ti a couple of years back near Stirling that was still on Mercury Motors plates and had all the original sales documentation. Mercury Motors is no longer on the go, but the ex-owner introduced himself to me at a ...

Glynis Freeman

So sorry to hear this news Peter. We had the pleasure of meeting Glynis when we visited a couple of years back, and she couldn’t have been lovelier or more welcoming.

Ti thermostat - seal or no seal

If it's a rubber seal that goes around the outer ridge of the Thermostat like a mini rubber tyre, then no, you don't need it. Just use the thermostat and the standard gasket as shown in previous diagrams.
Thanks old bean, perfect! It does seem like a good fit without the seal.

Ti thermostat - seal or no seal

Thanks Peter, that certainly matches the one that was in the car. The one I ordered was mentioned a while back in this thread (in members area): http://www.scimitarweb.co.uk/sgwrs/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=20476&p=234833&hilit=ti+thermostat#p234745 Unless the link has changed - it was 7 years ago. I see ...

Ti thermostat - seal or no seal

I ordered a replacement thermostat from euro car parts, and it came with a rubber seal fitted. Perhaps I’m being daft here, but should it be fitted with this rubber seal? I’ve held it in position with the seal in place, but can’t see how it would fit. Seems like it’d be a struggle to squeeze in plac...

Two tone 6 or 6A In Dundee

Yesterday (Sunday) afternoon, heading out of Broughty Ferry towards Monifieth. Similar colouring to my brother's old car (pictured) but possibly a darker cream/biege. Certainly not his though - he painted it red before selling it. Didn't catch the reg.

Scimitars in a Gilbern book!

Perhaps swimming against the tide here - but I like them. My brother had a Mk2 Invader in the early 80's (immediately after having a SE5) and, to me, it looked great. The Mk3 Invaders have always seemed to be the most desirable, but I much prefer the shape (and wheels) of the Mk1 and 2 Invaders.

pop-up headlights NOW INCLUDING HIDDEN HEADLIGHTS

Had a double-take when I saw this in a car book at my parent’s house today. Turns out it’s the Bitter Type 3 - a proposal for a small sports car, again based on Opel mechanics. Looks awfully familiar.
