Motor Trend Roadkill show 'Scimitar'?

Post by Diyhell » Sun Jul 21, 2019 10:13 am

My eye was caught by the silhouette of what seemed to be an SE5 or 5A in the background of a recent Roadkill. For those who subscribe, it's Episode 94 where involving the junkyard-rescue of a four-speed big-block ’64 Galaxie.

But what is that vehicle behind - not actually a Scim by the looks of it...?
