Another french GTE identified (white 5a)

Post by DARK STAR » Tue Sep 08, 2015 8:34 pm

Yet another white SE5a with Dunlop wheels, I've lost count.
This one has been on the mystery file for a while but I've finally tracked it down.
The owner is Gregoire Laroche who has a specialist classic car garage in Gémozac, Charente-Maritime (17).
He bought it in 2008 so he is quite a long-standing french Scimitariste.
