Alternative Coupé register ;-)

Well spotted - in fact one of my spies sent me the link this afternoon :wink:
Looks a bit of a job, I hope someone takes it on.

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

It's puzzling, because previous searches have not come up with this ad.
Nice looking car (in 2014) and at a bargain price, it must have sold as you say.

It's already out of date, though only in detail. I found this while looking for something else (as usual). This car is already on file as are the photos in the ad - dating from 2014. The ad itself seems to be from 2017 - but came up in a new search and there are questions from 2019. https://car-from...

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

Before we find anything else to change it, here is the latest list, in reg no order, Part One. I notice Matt says on his almost-half page in Slice that there are 516 cars on the official register. On this one there are 747, which even allowing for duplicates (number changes and unidentified cars) is...

To make up for that, here is a new car to the 'register' which has apparently already appeared on the forum -

SE5a YTY V8 project

Having done a radical brake overhaul on my Coupé, most of which I have since forgotten I put forward a few thoughts. My car didn't have a balance valve, I'm not at all convinced they are necessary. While you are doing the work, why not make it a dual-circuit system as I did ? You can use a different...

Encore more french Scimitars

Two or three discoveries this week : Mikebike in Brittany with a 1974 SE5a to restore, he is on the forum but no photo yet. The ex-Paul Maddison SS1800ti belonging to Pierre Urisari is now in Nice and may be for sale as Pierre feels he can't do the car justice and would like it to go to a proper rac...

Journée d'Elégance Automobile Golfe-Juan (06)

I wrote a long piece on this great show but it has disappeared into the ether. I will see if it's on my backup disc, meanwhile here are a few photos, and about a hundred more on https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipMtfcu0WLvZS628OsWqp9tXDootc1FtauVt5Zaz3xHpeyJZGOUuDF2ngNX8jq7vVQ/photo/AF1QipPCJhumL...

Unlikely discovery

Amazing though to find a Bond wheelbarrow at a car show in the south of France. I wonder how they managed to register the thing, the French are very fussy about 'conformity'. Since Reliant and Bond had links you could say that Dark Star had a sister car at the show ... :shock: no on second thoughts ...
