The Hants/Solent Noggin has been in existence since the mid/late 1990s and we still have a number of Club members who were at its creation, including myself. You can probably deduce from this that our membership has a wealth of knowledge, ranging from basic fettling and servicing through to major rebuilds and restorations. Like many other like-minded Club owners we are always here to give advice and guidance to those new and not so new to the world of Sabres and Scimitars.

The Noggin is also a good place to ask for advice or help on spare parts for our cars as it is not uncommon for someone to have that ‘difficult to find’ part that you are missing sat on a shelf in the garage!

The Noggin members have all types of Sabres and Scimitars, from rally prepared examples, daily drivers and also Concours condition cars, so please do not put off a visit to the Noggin if you think your car is not good enough as all are welcome!

We are a friendly bunch of around 15 regular members with a range of cars from early Sabres, Coupés, SE5-series, SE6-series and GTC cars and a few members have, over the years, owned cars from the Small Sports range as well.

We meet on the second Tuesday of each month at The Blue Bell Inn, 29 South Street, Emsworth, PO10 7EG, which is quite easy to get to. We generally have Scimitars attend, but the numbers vary depending on the time of year, so if you don’t wish to or cannot use your 'classic' then please come along anyway and make yourself know.

Hants/Solent Noggin members attend a few shows in Hampshire and also further afield in neighbouring counties, sometimes meeting up with other Noggins to swell the numbers and enjoy a day out with some healthy banter!

We also incorporate camping weekends around some of the shows, so if you have a tent, caravan or motorhome, you will be in good company.

A number of Noggin members also attend the Silverstone Classic in July and the RSSOC National 'ScimFest' weekend at the Curborough Sprint Course middle of August.

When details of shows and events are know they will be published on this page, so watch out for a full calendar of events by frequently checking this page for updates.
