Actually looks like it's an Se6b, if the reg is right? :)

Nice car! It's also one of the cars which features among the scrolling images on the ScimitarWeb homepage.

As an aside, to the admin people - maybe a different selection of cars could be shown on the homepage now (I know it's been at least 7 years with the current photos). Just a thought...

Thought I recognised the ref number! It was at Silverstone last year and it belongs to John Feay I think?

Didn't twig - it was the border between Weston Coyney and Meir and I recall John living in Meir.
