Pretty sure there were only two T-plate Se6as, my Yellow Peril, and a red one (see this thread). So, depends on the colour? :)

Yellow,or more of a slightly darker mustard colour in the picture,I don't recall the Reliant name.
But it will be your car,you need to buy a copy of the mag!

Yes, it's Aztec, which is a darker yellow than some of the brighter, more acidic, yellows. Thanks for the tip, I'll have to pop round to WH Smith's :D

Right, mission accomplished, pleasant afternoon stroll to WHS followed by purchase of said magazine - more junk for my collection! :roll: :lol: Steve Cropley seemed to enjoy the event (it's in his "My Week in Cars" column). Photo is bigger than I was expecting, which is a bonus. (though they have cropped some of the car).

Incidentally, (though you probably couldn't see from the photo), the stickers in the side window are the Goodwood Club (GRRC) ones; they issue a new one, of a different colour, each year, and as I'm a founder member, I have the full set (the current year is on the windscreen) :)
