On the subject of identity, I'm not surprised that the V5 was revoked. Although from a Scimitar and Coupe' owners perspective it's an interesting beast, probably creates some interest to the marque and in some people's eyes makes Scimitars "Cool". It's probably only about 10-20% of what left the Reliant Factory. And as such, should really be tested and checked as a home built project/kit car.

Anyway, stop bluffing Greeny. Where have you hidden it :lol:

I got bored of wandering around densley populated Coulsdon on Streetview so emailed LordBenny instead, He replied back with the address and confirms it is still there. He even sent me a couple more pics

And here it is :D

Interesting that it's parked on the street with no T&T?

Or did they IVA it?

Dave - re brownie points, tell Mrs G that you'd like to discuss buying it, then gain points for agreeing not to :mrgreen:

FWIW, as you say Stephen, not only is it on a driveway on streetview, but it also doesn't appear to have it's rear numberplate any more, and it doesn't appear on a DVLA search.

Well done on tracking it down, you definitely deserve the Sherlock Holmes Award for dedication to Scimitar discovery! :lol:

Matt, Chris (darkstar) and I found 3 chassis numbers for you, of coupes that were/are in USA. None of them were on your register. I emailed you about it, but the address on the website isn't the same as the one here. So just in case
