Wheel options??

While it may not be the only reason, I'm guessing that your choice of steels is perhaps influenced by the fact that you think they'll be cheapest, due to being the "basic" option? That's understandable, but it may be worth widening your search to include the Dunlop composite chrome/alloys. They were...

Supercar run-out

The Sabre looks good Chris, and very much at home in the surroundings! :D

You say they are "discreetly marketed", they're only a few miles from our noggin (on the other side of Horsham), but I hadn't heard of them - mind you I'm unlikely to buy a million-pound car anytime soon :lol:

Guide to the Se6a Cooling System

The original bungs did have a small hole to allow air to escape as the bottle fills (and re-enter as it empties), due to the warming-up and cooling-down of the engine. The bungs were a fairly tight fit in the bottle but I guess they would pop-out if they didn't have a bleed hole, as the bottle fille...

The myth of the water tight rear hatch...

Although, these days, the body seal that's normally supplied is a tubular door seal, it's worth bearing in mind that that wasn't what was originally fitted - it was a single lip-type seal. See this thread for more details

660XYB Engine fix

All GTE essex engines have diaphragm clutches, but the early essex has a domed profile thrust bearing similar to yours, and flat fingers on the diaphragm, the later one has curly fingers and a flat-faced bearing :)

Auto Retro / French Scimitars in the spotlight

Fantastic looking article, well done to all concerned! I must admit my French is a little rusty, so I'll need to read the text at a fairly steady pace (!), but judging by the photos they've really gone into it in some depth. Thanks to Fred for keeping us informed, and thanks to all the owners who pa...

Car that has not been sorned

Yes, I'd agree with Will, if it was off the road, untaxed, before SORN came in, there was no requirement to declare SORN (unless the vehicle changed hands)

Collective Head Scratch - Exhaust Wrap ?

Well, speaking personally, I've been driving Scimitars since Jan 1983 with unwrapped manifolds, and will continue that way :wink:
