Info sought re. GTE in Yorkshire

Pound to a penny it's way overpriced for what it is,and one in the same condition privately probably £5k. Put a detailed wanted add on here and buy from a member who can give you full details of its condition,or wait for a private sale on Car and Classic with a full write up. You need to be patient ...

Oaksey's XJ6

Yes Thought it was...a real blast from the past for me. The 3.8 E-type I had in the early 70s,which by then was very well used,had been painted several colours in its life and by then was Light blue..and around the same time we acquired an old,tired MG Midget and I painted that the same light blue ...

For those denied the pleasure of owning a Reliant

Can't see a rationale as to why the total retro styling? ....which to my eyes is perhaps more 50s than 60s.

SS1 in magazine

I think it’s a relevant comparison - those were the cars Reliant was looking to replace in the British buyers minds. The troubled TR7 drophead was on its way out and the big companies were all worrying about the forthcoming US regulation changes for convertibles - so what other 2 seater convertible...

SS1 in magazine

Apart from the factual errors,why compare it to the then obselete Midget and Spitfire?
Better compared IMO to the MX5 and MR2 mk1s...although these will probably have more rust issues nowadays :)

Coupe for Sale SRE 353G

Sod's law that I see a desirable car at a good price about once every two years but never seem to be in a position to follow through and buy it. Two months ago I would have snapped this up,but my current medical problems dictate against this. It should sell quickly,but please don't sell it to a deal...

SS1 for sale on the facebook market place.

Hi there's an ss1 for sale on the facebook market place located in slough. There are very few details and the comment says totally sealed chassis ( who know's what that means !) They haven't prepared the car in anyway and are asking £500 for it. I've linked it into the RSSOC facebook page. Mike The...

Moto Lita Boss (B44?) or alternative fitting one

Being pedantic,that wheel may have been fitted to an E-type but it's not an original style E-type wheel.

The Jag wood rim wheels were flat,i.e no dish at all and did not have the riveted rims.

Side to side movement in rack mount

Herald sourced steering sounds cheaper and associated with a tight turning circle - positive things from my point of view. Agreed, it should logically be cheaper to go to the Triumph source. On the Elan the steering lock had to be restricted compared to the same set up on the Herald.I would be very...

The Beige Scimega SE5a

As they say it's better to travel hopefully than to arrive,so onwards and upwards! Impressive restomod indeed...strangely I skimmed through and didn't see the price, but re- reading it your price is exactly what came to me previously. Don't sell it for less,although it may take some time to find a b...

Electric Power Steering? SE6

The SE6 on power rack is only about two and a half turns (although the lock is poor) and was always to me a very satisfactory "quick" rack. There must be quite a few conversion kits of used parts (rack and pipe work,pump and different trunnions,etc.) from previously broken cars,if you put a wanted a...

Unusual 15" Wheels 4x114.3 - But Would you Fit Them?

The seller seems to favour the word "rare" to describe them.

After only a brief glance it's not difficult to realise why they are rare. :)
