Jim, any space left in there, might be interested in dropping something sleek in for maybe a year or so?

Yep - email your details (name & membership number), contact details (email, landline, mobile), car details (type, reg, chassis number - Reliants only) and dates (from/to) to myself or Chris and we will add you to the "enquiries" list - once everything's agreed you're moved to the "bookings" list :-)

Booked and paid for. Thanks to John Unwin and his debit card machine. Thankfully the 2 cars will get a warmer winter and appear fresh in March/April.

Just to keep you updated, I've done the deal :D and the current owner is happy for me to leave at his place till I am able to take next year, saves me a trip down to Gloucester and back and the trailer hire and fuel costs, thanks anyway

With the first ever 4b coupe, the second ever SE6 and the fourth ever SE5 (and the last known 1400 SS1 and the last Sabre mk 1.5) - I prefer to think of it as somewhere to store some of our most historical cars while their discerning owners gather the courage (as well as wonga and brownie points) to resurrect them. :-)

Jim,
The white Coupe is the first SE4B by chassis number. So it's the first Coupe with black dial bezels and a whole host of other 'improvements' over the SE4A! I'm itching to start renovating it and my better half is encouraging me to do so - as long as I sell quite a few others. Having driven OPY 170G, her reasoning is that now I know what a good one is like, I should be able to make this one better. Too many other things in progress this year to even consider it, so in dry storage with Scimitar Royalty is the best place for it for now.
Geoff
