I've already done a few posts on here but didnt really introduce myself.

My names Jamie, I live in the Sandwell area & have a 1975 Scimitar se5a, when i picked it up it wasnt running too well & need some tlc. Here's a few pics of it in its current state after a lot of hard work from me.

Its going for its first MOT in a while so fingers crossed.........

I only ever look online and they were not visible yesterday but are now, how very odd!!

Now I've seen them, it looks like a very nice car (not sure about the need for bonnet pins though!)

congrats and welcome to the wonderful world of Scimotoring!!!

cheers, Matt

Hi Jamie and welcome, The car looks good, I can imagine you're really keen to get out there driving it, so good luck with the MOT :D

cheers,

....Roger

ps. I found the pictures seemed to lag behind the message, on both RSS and on-site, but as the saying goes, "all good things come to him who waits!"

Well its passed the MOT and were almost ready for motoring, after a few bits & pieces & some hard work here's how its looking now.

Just need to do a bit more on the inside, the temp gauge & fuel gauge have suddenly stopped working so that needs doing, the 8 track player has been fitted but needs speakers, i need to have a new leather cover made for the boot & then were almost there.

Whats peoples thoughts on viper stripes?

PS: the bonnet pins were on when i got it, they dont even do anything, there just cosmetic lol..

Is it a Viper? :wink:

A stripe down the middle can look good, as seen on Phil Morgan and Garry Cox's sprint cars:
