What did you transport in your Scimitar today?

Post by MarkHawkins » Mon Jun 27, 2016 10:05 pm

With the Disco off the road again, OPJ the 6a was called to transport a 1967 Raleigh Wisp (as modelled by Twiggy etc) to it's new owner a few miles away. It fitted in surprisingly easily. I think a Honda Cub might be a stretch though.

We took a very boring trip to 'Home Bargains',a place I would consider a necessary evil, several bags of (according to Mrs littlestwoo) essentials where carried with ease.

Today was a day of rest after spending Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, ( :D ) so I didn't actually go anywhere. However, it had been a bit muddy in parts, so I did have to drive the SS1 from the garage to our communal water tap, loaded up with hosepipe, bucket, brush etc, to give it a thorough clean to remove the after-effects of the weekend. It's nice and clean again now though! :D

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 :)

My student son, with all his belongings and two weeks' worth of laundry :lol: , home for the summer break , from Metz . 300 miles round trip, 5h40m on the road, a shade over half a tank of SP95, no oil used - but overheating problems again! :evil: Boiled up just as we arrived home, checked the coolant this morning, its lost about two litres somewhere.

The Scimitar SS1 is not so much a car as a lifestyle statement; it basically says "I'm mad, and I don't care".

You could make a shed out of that - a 'Small Space' if you will.

One of my wife's favourite programs. Got to built the Taj Mahal in my back garden with 'free' pallets and anything washed up on the beach....except that I live in Swindon!

Ho hum

One overhauled V6 engine, two 5a axles, two cyl. heads, two F.E. faceplates, two chucks, one engine crane, all with the Racy Red Bakery Truck and its 4ft box trailer. Proper "cream-crackered" after that!
