no, I’m told that although it sold last August, it hasn’t been shown on TV - why something this basic takes 8 months to be edited, I have no idea :D

Got a screenshot of it from Steve Jenkins.
None the wiser though, as it's not on the register. Looks like a personalized plate...

The Scimitar guy gave me the most amusement I've had since the lockdown.
He was going to auction the GTC but changed his mind and let the GTE go instead, because (IIRC) he had decided to drive the GTC to the south of France and thereby get a girlfriend...
Somewhat of a facepalm moment for me...

On the above on wed, a guy initially wanting to put his GTC into a classic car auction changes his mind at the last minute and substitutes his Spare SE6. AND there is a bonus green SE6 to be seen in the background which isn't mentioned - 3 in 1 programme, could that be a record?
