Oh my goodness... Mike, I am so sorry to hear this. The car seemed in good shape to me from the little that I saw (and heard), and I was assured the paperwork was comprehensive. I feel pretty flat now. I must apologise, as I clearly made an inaccurate assessment of the car. The seller must've 'talke...

North Coast 500

It's clearly a 'bucket list' experience for any keen driver, as evidenced by the comments above. I fully intend to give it a go sometime too. The issue for me is that, as a teacher, I am limited to the 'peak' times of year, when it'll be busy with tourists... :?

No probs, Mike. I'll try and make contact with the seller tomorrow and see if I can arrange a viewing for Sunday. I'll keep you updated by private message.

Ooh Will, you've put the burden on me now...! :wink: Well, I've had a chat with my wife and she has kindly granted me permission to go and view the car this Sunday morning - not with a view to buying, but to help out Mike. Larkhall is about 30 miles or so from me. Of course, it will depend on whethe...

The ViaRETRO Scimitar SE6a

Welcome! That looks like a lovely car you've got there. In answer to your questions: 1. I believe there was a colour known as 'celtic brown', but I'm pretty sure it wasn't as nice as that colour. I never knew brown could look so good! 2. Yes on both counts, I believe. 3. I think others have done thi...

Fantastic news! I was watching the interview DVD lately and he really does come across well, with a good dose of humour and humility.

You got the chassis number on that one, Jim? I just watched the whole video through. What a staggering number of cars! It appears the guy would buy cars on a whim, then decide later whether he actually liked them (which, in most cases, he didn't!). Bonkers. And to see what he kept in preference to a...

Barons 11 December 2018 SE4 - £12K!!

I'd be more concerned about the fact that those photos are date-stamped from nearly 10 years ago! (Sorry, Josh - I just saw that you beat me to it!) I was keen to read the auction advert in full, but got about halfway through before abandoning it in utter despair at its complete disregard for any ru...

Is a 5A improved over a 5 ?

I adore my 5a, but I'd agree that the 5 is generally a bit nicer cosmetically - the dash and its toggle switches, especially. There are a couple of other external things, which you may have noticed - the thin (chrome?) side strip which gives more definition to the body, the '3 litres' badge (instead...

I'm so glad you're enjoying the new acquisition and already making improvements to it - and delighted that I was responsible for naming such a smart-looking Scim! Enjoy! :D

Only if you are a purist. It is the engine that should have been in it from the start. If it is a good conversion (and it looks like it) I would say it is a plus.
Hear, hear... If it's had other modifications as well anyway, then it's never going to be a 'standard' car. Embrace the V8! :twisted:
