Long time lurker...

Post by team309 » Mon Sep 07, 2020 1:30 pm

Hello all, I'm Dave and have been using this excellent resource for some time, but haven't posted. I live near Southam, Warwickshire and I've got a white 1800ti (pic on the "Scimitar sightings" board which prompted me to break cover). I've always been a fan of Scimitars and have previous had 3 GTEs - two SE5as and an SE6a. I was hoping to get to a show or two this summer but hey ho, hopefully another year...

Hi Dave. I'm the guilty party for snapping your SS1. I might have seen it at one of the Kineton classics evenings last year too?

I'm also near Southam and sometimes go to the Kineton or Whichford evenings when they are running.

Yes Ben, I was at the Kineton event in September last year. Also saw the attached that night- is this you (or anyone else on here)? Thanks for the heads up about Whichford! I will look out for it.
