Absolute beginner is in reference to my history as a Scimitar owner by the way. Aside from having an Essex V6 in the back of a Bedford van I used to own (and st...

Re: Absolute Beginner

Scimitars and hot dates. I think that should be sold as a series to the BBC. Every week a bunch of lapsing celebrities choose a Scimitar key from a bowl, with an address attached to it. Each week, obe celebrity gets knocked out for poor dating skills or a fire, or collapsed outriggers, and the winne...

Re: Absolute Beginner

It's not too bad for the money I paid. It's very ratty up close. Lots of uneven textures on the surfaces, misaligned panels (bonnet and driver's door) and tatty inside. But to be honest, that's what I want and what I like. I have neither the time nor the space to maintain a pristine car, so for year...

Re: Absolute Beginner

WRONG FORUM!

HOW DO I DELETE PLEASE?

How embarrasing. I'm Tim, and I just recently (as recently as yesterday) popped my Scimitar cherry and purchased a fairly ratty SE5a with the usual legendary 3.1RS engine that's always fitted to slightly knackered old Scimitars pulled out of hedges.

Absolute Beginner

Hello, I'm Tim. I like art, walks in the park, rainy days and sunshine. I'm a keen poet and write my own poetry which I perform to an appreciative audience at my local poetry groups. I'm looking to meet a lady for fun, friendship, possibly more (ie sex and so on). I'm shy and quiet, but I have hidde...
