Consider yourself blessed that you weren't subjected to such utterly lazy advertising! It was embarrassing. :oops:

SE5a for restoration - offers

Good GOLly, Will - you kept that one quiet! I never knew you had a secret wreck of a 5a! All the best with the sale. It'd be nice to see it back in its full glory...

Car Cover

I can't recommend a particular type, but there may be something to be said for just leaving it uncovered to allow the body and chassis to 'breathe'. I discovered this the hard way when my previous Scimitar's paintwork started bubbling up within a matter of days after fitting a car cover.

Good or Appropriate Number Plates

Tee-hee! :wink: On that note, I think the colour Mark saw on the M4 is in fact classed as 'blue' by BMW/DVLA. I saw an M6 in the same colour recently, and when I looked it up the car colour was listed as 'blue'.

Good or Appropriate Number Plates

I spotted this one last Friday. Appropriately enough, it was parked outside the School of Classics at Edinburgh University. I did have to ponder where its weak point might be... :lol: Achilles.JPG Interestingly, its sister plate, AK17 EES, is on another white diesel estate - this time a Golf. Both w...

Quite a collection! Do you think they'd be visible on Google Street View? It'd be interesting to take a look...

I gave up on photobucket when they tried to hold us all to ransom.
Yes, I was exactly the same. I've just paid one month's subscription - there will not be another!

Scrap Scimitars

A friend of mine discovered these Scimitars in a scrapyard between Howwood and Lochwinnoch. [Apologies - photos are attached in my next post below...] Sadly, these photos are from a couple of years ago and, on dropping by today, I discovered that the Scimitars have now gone. I had a brief chat with ...

Yes, so all the signs are there - 5a 'Scimitar' lettering, 5a black headlight surrounds, 5a Scimitar side badges, 5a interior... So what's the deal with the 'J' reg, I wonder? Personal plate?

OK - not actually a Scimitar

Ah, that solves it - nice looking car! I actually had 'Lotus' in my head when I saw it, but didn't want to risk suggesting that in case I was way off the mark! :D

OK - not actually a Scimitar

Someone alerted me to a 'chocolate brown Scimitar' that had been parked up for years next to an MG. On further investigation, I found this... https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@55.804695,-4.1246777,3a,15y,71.15h,80.58t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sUpEwAk-IbWhg6H2rtOI3GA!2e0!7i16384!8i8192 Now clearly this is not...
