SS1 Mixture & Running

Something to be aware of

What I'd really like to see is a retro-fit industry spring up, that produces engine swaps, take out the old IC motor and slot in an electric plug n play substitute. It seems daft scrapping an otherwise perfectly good car just because the engine is undesirable. So why not take out the motor and fuel...

Looking for my parent's Scimitar SE6A

The Club archivist (Dave Poole) keeps records of all Scimitars that appear on ebay, so I'll ask him. Unfortunately I know that he's on holiday at the moment, so won't have access to his records for a few days.

Looking for my parent's Scimitar SE6A

no apologies needed - we don't discriminate against members that only post every couple of years :P

Did the SE6 registrar get back to you? My old version of the register says that it appeared on EBay at some time. There's no date on there. so it wasn't added by me, which means it's post early 2010.
