GTC on Ebay

Ian, this GTC (#350) is on the register and recorded since at least 2005. The most recent owner recorded on the register was a member. It came to my attention last month when one of my "spies" spotted it for sale :) It was originally Champagne, but seems to have been resprayed white in the late 80's.

Good or Appropriate Number Plates

On a black Zaphira.
Mind you, if you are going to drive like a tw&t, it's usually a good idea not to have a memorable registration :lol:

Brake hoses

Which SE4?
Early cars (straight 6 engine) had 2-pot calipers and later cars 3-pot. Not sure if that may have required different routing of the flex.

I fitted Goodrich pipes which I bought from one of the Scimitar specialist (albeit many many years ago), and they fitted perfectly.

Spotted A49 South of Hereford

Of roughly the 3 "B" reg GTC's that are white (versus the unknowns - lots of special paint code 99 in the later cars :? ), then there is only one clearly in the Hereford area. If you can get me the reg number next time you see it, that would help me help you :D P.S. all hardtops were black, unless s...

So when is my GTC tax exempt?

Taking my car as an example.....it was built in Nov 79 but only sold in Aug 80. Now, reliant putting build dates in their chassis numbers and also having a dealer letter explaining this is proof enough for the dvla. So, my car is now mot exempt, but will only be able for tax exemption in early apri...

So when is my GTC tax exempt?

As Jim has already answered, tax exemption will depend on when your GTC was registered, not unfortunately for a large number of us GTC owners, when it was manufactured - which as we all know, is coded in the VIN. Of the 340 built in 1980, quite a few weren't registered until well into 1981, and some...

GTC Hardtop survey

Alex, thanks for posting :D
Count me as interested in a full set. The rear has been in & out a few times (was out when I acquired the GTC) and as mentioned on e-mail, the sides are beginning to perish.

Possible scammer selling Scimitars on eBay

The GTC appeared last month on eBay. Seemed then to have legitimate details, though unfortunately not on the register under that registration number (UDU 463W) Interestingly, the buy it now price is the same as the price I recorded after 23 bids, and reserve not met. I don't know if it legitimately ...

Sabre bodied SS1

Jim, is that still a 1300 engine?
The air filter was round not oval, or at least it was on mine :?

(I didn't read the eBay ad, so forgive me if it already mentioned the engine was changed :oops: )

A straight six coupe on a G reg?
Agreed. The chassis the D-type kit is on and the bodyshell in the background are unlikely to have been the same car (though if purchased as a box of bits, the seller might not have been any the wiser)

Hotmail email problem

Thanks for suggestions :D
Typical though, it's working fine again :oops: :evil:

I checked and it is still looking at m.hotmail.com server, though as suggested, I would have expected this to have changed to outlook a long time ago !
