Auto Retro / French Scimitars in the spotlight

Nice! I have participated to the one regarding the Chimaera recently, it's a good idea to collect owners' feedbacks.

Thanks, I've done some research but I missed this one. So it's almost impossible to see it in the engine bay?

The adventures of Tom Thumb the daily driver

Nice presentation and nice car!
Changing the wheels was a good move indeed.
It make me remember when I bought my Chimaera, I had to stop several times during the trip back to home due to overheating. Normal people would have bring back the car to the seller but too late, I was bitten by the virus :D.

Thanks all for your messages. It's not difficult to find good tyres, make a search for 195 x70 x 14 at Allopneus, or 123 pneus . I found some very good tyres 4 Seasons just two weeks ago.

@scimjim, what do you call an early box? When have they changed? Mine has indeed a strong spring to put the stick in front of the 3-4 row in neutral.

I have already a 97 TVR Chimaera 400 and a 69 MG B GT. I have found a buyer for the MG i...
