Youngest 6A?

My 6a chassis number ends in 3499 but registered in May 19 1978, so am I right in saying it was manufactured in 1977 so can I claim my free road tax at the post office ? :D

Re: What did you transport in your Scimitar today?

I took four full size doors to the tip, decided I had hoarded them long enough and decided they would not come in handy at all :) Bit of exhaust fume in the cabin but all windows and sun roof open and I was ok :)

Re: Big b*gger needs to squeeze in, NW UK

SE6 in Redcar /Cleveland

I spotted what I thought was a Scimitar months ago under cover in the front gardedn of a house local to me. I was walking past the same house today to see a dark green Scimitar tucked away at the bottom of the house's garden next to the garage. Ok call me nosy but I prefer the term curious :)
