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

A Morgan Aero (I think) while getting fuel - looked quite new and had a sort of boat tail? Regular Morgans seem quite common in Chipping Norton but I've only seen a few of these closed versions here.

EAC 200K

The 2015 JS Auctions catalogue suggested that the car was a 1968 motor show car -
'1968 Reliant Scimitar GTE SE5A (believed to be motor show car). Original black rexine interior. Essex V6. Green paint work, 4 speed manual. Transmission with overdirve.'
I take it this was a mistake ?

Coventry Motofest 2018

Anyone going to this at the weekend ? - https://www.coventrymotofest.com
It's all free (apart from the Rolling Stones concert..) and there is so much on it would seem a tie to take a car for exhibition.

A WD40 product that really worked

I was having problems with indicators on Williams 5a - one side worked the other didn't but hazards were fine (even with flasher cans swapped) so it had to be the indicator switch. I sprayed some wd40 electrical contact cleaner on the switch and operated the switch a few times and suddenly both indi...

Starter motor testing - next steps?

I checked around and found secondhand ones at £60 from a trader, hi-torque uprated ones at £220 (powerlite) or so and made in Netherlands 1.8kw ones at £130. I bought one of these, fitted it and now the car starts fine (much quicker turning over - better than it ever has in 4 years). Now I have a ne...

Starter motor testing - next steps?

OPJ the 6a began getting hard to start the other day and now won't turn over at all. 2 batteries have been tried that will start other cars. I checked the earths and found one from the engine block wasn't really connected so connected it again - still no turning over. There is power to the starter (...
