Where are you? Global locator for you to fill in!

Have you documented a Scimitar related procedure and would like to share it with others? Pictures are most welcome!

Just added my location and although I gave the post code, the marker is about 3 miles out. I tried to delete it but was denied access - probably just as well knowing me!

What's with the one out in the North Sea? Did it fall off the back of a ferry?


Cheers

Darren,
I don't know if you are aware but you could soon be joined by a senior RSSOC Club Member with the multitude of his Scimitar fleet and he nearly has as many as me.
If you need any bits let me know as my "Alladin's Cave" has provided bits both NEW and Used to keep peoples Scimmies running, for multiple Scimitar models, around the world (ie. New Zealand / Australia / South Africa / Holland / Sweden / Germany / Switzerland / France / Ireland / Scotland / Guernsey / Jersey / Denmark / Belgium) except the early Sabras/Sabres and Couoes (SE4s).
Regards,
Viv

According to this map, I can draw a circle of at least 700 miles in radius around me with no other Scimitar. Can it be? Someone in the vicinity should brush up a little bit :)

Just been on this map again to see if anyone has added any more locations close to me and My balloon is aproximately 2 miles from my location. How do I move my balloon.

I'd like to know that too, when I originally marked my location I didn't pay much attention and just stuck the pin anywhere in Antibes.

There are not many Scimitars marked in France, here are the approximate locations of a few that I know ...

Cheers

Good idea...Chadderton, Oldham - SE5


1969 Coupe....in bits
1969 GTE....dead :(
1973 GTE..buggered, now becoming a hot rod instead
1974 SE5a - at last one that works :)

plus, an AC Cobra replica for the sunny days, and, a disappointed missus !
(Update, she left, so I bought another Scimitar!)

to relocate

click on the baloon and a details box appears, bottom right corner there are three icons click the second one (an arrow i think), then drag your baloon to where it should be.

Thanks Geraint.
I didn't have to close the box.
It seems to have worked.

Mike Wybrow is somewhere in Spain?
There are a couple of Scimitars in south west France too, but not on the map.
The French in general don't understand cars, I don't know about the Spanish.
One of these days we'll meet up (I would love to see your Coupé)!
