Edit - just looked at the website, do you mean the buckskin 6a? Didn’t see it in the showroom, how long has it been for sale?

1985 SE6B 24v Cosworth 2.9 FOR SALE

It’s £10k less than an equivalent Middlebridge, so I don’t think originality is that vital. I was talking to Graham Walker yesterday and he’s confident the values are rising - confident enough to sink c£20-40k into a rebuild of his own, as well as building a customer car for similar money AND havin...

Blimey, unusual me being challenged as too young! :shock: Guess that's a back handed compliment, you old guard are blamed for enough, so going for the weird plastic car option yet another example of the drugs all you 60s hipsters did I guess and should be forgiven... :lol: I remember well what I wa...

March 2019 issue of Classic & Sports Car magazine, Scimitar content

It's demand mainly. Many more people owned capris in their yoof, hence there's a greater number of 'potential' owners for the few remaining capris left, hence they demand higher price. The scimitar was a low volume niche car when new, so pro rata smaller current market. Other thing was reliant have...

Coupe exhaust manifolds needed

Anyone in the midlands wanting manifolds could enquire here:

https://www.pdgough.com/

Can't say they will be cheap,but they have a lifetime guarantee.They made a custom stainless high quality system for me,including tubular manifolds, a long time ago,pleased to see they are still in business.

Tyre choice?

Of those two I would pick the Hankook ones.

A rated wet grip and seem to have the better reviews.

...and for the rear of an MR2 I think you want the best grip you can get!

(MR2s are great cars,had several in the past.)

6a tyre size

I believe 195/70/14 are the most popular choice and have been fitted for many years without problem on the standard size rims.
205/70 are OK,as you will know,but are a bit wide for 5.5/6 inch rims.

Pretty sure there were only two T-plate Se6as, my Yellow Peril, and a red one (see this thread). So, depends on the colour? :)
Yellow,or more of a slightly darker mustard colour in the picture,I don't recall the Reliant name.
But it will be your car,you need to buy a copy of the mag!

Car Building

Some interesting videos have recently been put on youtube showing two car builds that took place over the last 5 years or so by a friend of mine,Ian Cowan. I have known Ian for nearly 50 years but I don't get to visit very often because he lives a distance away in the wilds of Cumbria,but when I las...

No, they're original to S1 XJ6 too. If it's on this car, it's as it was built ;)
OK,I'm probably thinking of the XJ S2 which I think had more utilitarian steel lifting brackets
