Spot the mistake

My K-series Elise has been misfiring. The internet said check plugs and leads first. Sure enough, plugs and end of leads submerged in oil. Spot the obvious cam cover gasket mistake from the head-gasket job of last year.

GTE glass for free

I've a load of Scimitar glazing to dispose of : all for free, but inconveniently in Northern Ireland : 1 SE5a windscreen, several rear quarter windows for both SE5a and SE6a, rear hatches, both SE5a and SE6a. The frames aren't good, so probably only useful for the glass. I'd rather someone could use...

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

SE6a in Galway

Not been on the road in the UK since 1989, Jim. I guess it's been in Ireland for a while. I've e-mailed the seller to get more info.

Full set of Scimitars for sale in France

Is it me or does that SE5a pic look like something odd is going on with the wheels? Banded Dunlops? That would be awesome.

Red SE5a on Salvage Hunters

I got a glance of a red SE5a on Salvage Hunters just now on Quest Red channel. Perched atop some other gear in a yard Drew Pritchard visited to make some purchases. no reg plate fitted.
Same episode as he bought a rotten Morris Minor for £800 and made a 50p profit.
