Grawpy

Two dogs an' one bone? Whats a phone got t' do wi' it?

No, seriously, lovely bodywork, smooth contours, active suspension, good acceleration an' braking, excellent cornering and cheap as chips t' run. Cars pretty good too!

Heading West, well North West eventually.

That's a lovely route as far as Llangollen, and doing it in a GTE is exactly what it was designed for. If you're tempted to do it again, you're welcome to pop in, only a two mile detour, roughly half way twix Anglesey and Swindon. Talking of 5 1/2 hours, that's how long we queued for Antiques Roadsh...

1972 red SE5a for auction in Poland

Don't know why I'm curious about its identity?

Seem to vaguely remember a red 5a stolen fra' Scarborough ages ago.

Looks the same colour and has black grp bumpers as mine.

Things people have said about your Scimitar

Just back from the blasters and galvanisers in Oswestry to see their facilities and get ballpark quotes, the boss and works manager were more than interested in the Coupe chassis project then in comes the head secretary.

Advice needed on noise from new Spax damper and mounting

Hi Gordini, the bushes in Spax do suffer from squishing quite quickly in service but as the loading is downwards on the lower mount and upwards on the top one, metal can be removed to provide clearance. It's not a very elegant engineering solution but does work ok.

Does Run Fast 351 Eventually!

Thanks for the comment, Big Cough😜! Good call David. I'll have the opportunity to have a look when I organise the family barbie party to part the body from chassis. I'm trying to design a two height trolley so the underside is accessible for repairs then lower it for the painter to reach the roof😳! ...
