William Towns

Yes, it's an interesting story, and surprisingly, perhaps, the car does still exist - here it was at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2009

SS1 door striker

I don't know about the earliest Scimitars, but it's certainly not the same as Se6-series. Here's the SS1 one: 39023560152_133af09a6d_o.jpg And here's the Se6a one: 24193142457_fd1f6d576d_o.jpg As the SS1 external door handles are SD1, I thought it might come from there, but I looked in the Rimmer br...

Scimitar wanted

Welcome, Alan, and good luck with your search :D

I'd agree with Nigel, that your budget may be entry-level but should get you a usable one (albeit with some compromises). Personally, I would tend to value an MOT and evidence of recent use, above a superficially shiny paint job :wink:

All 4 main beams on single fuse & single speed heater fan

Oh dear! :( I think you're right, Jim.... All 4 beams now also flash. That, at least, is what you'd expect. Headlamp flash should operate both the inner pair of main filaments and the outer pair of main filaments. Whether, in your case, that result is being achieved through the usual wiring, is a sl...

Restoration of 1965 Elan S2

Sorry to hear of your problems, Geoff. One thought - I notice from his website that he claims to be a member of the Federation of Engine Remanufacturers and uses their logo. They, on their website, say they offer a conciliation or arbitration service to handle complaints against members. Obviously I...

Track Day Insurance

AFAIK most UK Trackdays are run to guidelines issued by either AMRCO (Association of Motor Racing Circuit Owners) or ATDO (Association of Track Day Organisers). In the case of Goodwood, it was AMRCO. The ATDO code of practice is here , after a quick google I can't actually find the AMRCO one online,...

SE6 suspension query

I am sure there are plenty of 6's with non reinforced lower brackets....i have a project GTC with them and it was built in '79..... who knows what a previous owner/"mechanics" may have d...

Track Day Insurance

Competition and Track Days are different things. If you want insurance for non-competitive track days, then you may find that's covered by your normal classic insurance (maybe subject to certain conditions, like for example, you may need to belong to the organising Club). Certainly that was the case...
