Shooting Brakes

Sorry, should have said HGV tyre testing, they apparently mounted lorry tyres on a test wheel inside the cabin.
What they then did to / with them I've no idea.
Mind you, that machine must be a pretty Heavy Goods Vehicle itself ...

Shooting Brakes

Google doesn't recognise Jaguar XF.
I don't recognise modern Jaguars in general (type F is an exception).
But you couldn't mistake that one, is it a hearse?

Incidentally the Citroën is a mobile tyre testing station built for Michelin.

Scimba - Just add fuel

How thick is too thick? Cutting gaskets is easy, even I can do it. Mastic is even easier 8) I think Sikaflex (or other polymer / polyurethane) mastic is resistant to everything short of a thermonuclear attack. But, as they say, read the label to be sure. Also, it seems to me that Hermetite do a petr...

Scimba - Just add fuel

Do you need such a thick seal?
Could you cut one out of gasket paper or cork or whatever?
OR abandon it and use Sikaflex ...

Thanks chaps, I thought they were probably different cars.
HRE 408F is on file as long ago as 1992 at Curborough, I expect Dave has the original factory pics 8)

Scimitar SE6 Trackday car from France

Welcome indeed, felicitations on your purchase - and on your english! Now it seems it is the turn of Scimitar race cars to emigrate, we already have the ex-Howard Nelson car over here :wink: That seems to sit the road nicely, but it would if family Carter set it up. I see you have already registered...

Only one pic of HEG 387D, without date but almost certainly after 1988.
Have you one of it finished 8) ?

I'll have a look at Dave's site thanks Jim.

FYM 306C was perfectly normal, one reg number before but two chassis numbers after ... Here is a puzzle I discovered while searching FYM. This gold car was obviously a factory demonstrator / press car but its registration number which I decipher as BRE 296D is unknown to me and apparently to Matt. I...

Ok so I had to search my press files and found two references.
