Hello, new French here !

Post by Fr_tony » Tue Dec 19, 2017 2:11 pm

Hi there,

Names Anthony, and living in France, Normandy.
I'm owner of some classics ,mainly English ones, and from some weeks 2 scimitar to be restored:
- Jaguar XJ6 Series 1 1969
- Peugeot 203 1954 & 403 1959
- Alcyon Type 23 1952
- Scimitar SE6a 1978
- Scimitar SE5a 1973

I'll post some photos of them later, and try to post regularly about work progress on both scimitar :)
In advance, forgive my poor grammatical level, but as real French, I never learnt English at school :twisted: but only coming over quite often :D

Nice Christmas time to everyone there,

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.
