Maroon SE6a - FNS 562S

Post by ScimiTom » Thu Jul 02, 2020 11:20 pm

Noticing my 5a in the supermarket car park this morning, a woman came over and we had a good chat about Scimitars. She had a 6a in the late 80s/early 90s and showed me a photo. FNS 562S was a maroon 6a auto on Middlebridge wheels. She also mentioned that her husband had owned a 5/5a, and that her nephew Keith (possibly in London?) currently owns a Scimitar too!

It looks as if her old car may no longer be with us, as it hasn't been MOT'd for 10 years now. She recalls having the car converted to run on unleaded, and believes she sold it to a policeman living or working in Dumbarton (west coast of Scotland). She spoke with obvious nostalgia and fond memories of a car she loved! I don't suppose anyone knows any more about this one?
