Two Scimitars spotted at Rallye de Charente, Sep '15

Post by tanuki » Mon Dec 05, 2016 5:41 pm

I just found a few pictures of two Scimitars which took part in a Rallye in Charente (Jarnac) last year 8)

J3PRR, '93 Sabre - Anyone here :mrgreen: ? -
H448CVS , Colin's '90 SST 1800 ( except for minor details - no rear spoiler, no rollbar and large Scimitar badge on the steering wheel- it could be a twin to my car :shock: )

These were spotted together at Le Mans in 2014 as well. See this thread

Thanks Roger for the reminder :D

Indeed I had briefly encountered Colin Powell's SST at Le Mans Classic in 2014 ... and also this year at the IR in Aachen.
I don't recall ever meeting Paul Redington's Sabre yet ... but if those guys are often visiting France, it should not be long 8)
Will send an email to Colin to see whether he could be interested in the Montee Historique in Laon next year
or any other event on our french calendar :wink:

Cheers,
Fred

Well spotted Fred.
I wonder how many (few!) pointy cars are NOT red ...

There's a lot of white ones, I think - I don't know if anyone's got any figures, but it might be a close-run thing :)
