New Project!

Post by PilotLight » Sat May 16, 2020 9:39 pm

Hey everyone,
I've just bought an SE6a as a driving project and it came with an RSSOC keyring so I'm guessing it was owned by one of you guys at some point so I thought I would see if I could find out as much as possible about the car.

It turns out that it was built in the same month that I was born in 1978 which is pretty cool, there was a great history file with it so it's certainly had some love over the years although it now needs a lot more!

Cheers,
Andy

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

Saw this advertised for sale for quite a while in the Ipswich area. The owner had broken another car and had quite a few spares for sale. Looks ok - good luck with it.

Hi,
Welcome and I agree - I like the colour scheme too.
If you are planning on working on the car, please start a project thread - I didn't and now I can't find any of the feedback etc as it is all on various threads.
Good luck, keep us informed.

That's the one, he had it listed for quite strong money considering the condition which is probably why it hung around for a while. Needs an idiot like me to come along which is one in a million I would guess! 😂🤣😅
