Jun 1970 road-test

Reading an old Motor Sport magazine, I came across a road-test of the Scimitar GTE. It makes interesting reading and I will quote the summing-up paragraph: 'The Reliant Scimitar GTE is unique, a luxury estate of very high performance, and an uncommonly exciting-looking one into the bargain. Its grea...

Trolley-jack bargain

Just thought it was worth sharing that Aldi are selling a two-tonne trolley-jack for £19.99. I bought one and it seems a sturdy thing, well capable of doing what I want it to,,,

Woodstock SE6

Seen today, almost did a double-take as it does look a lot like my old OPW 734P!

Nice to see a familiar Middlebridge today

Bierton-based G644 SRP was out and about, today, looking good. I was behind it from Stoke Mandeville to Bierton.

Owner's Manual

Clearing out some Scimitar stuff, I realise I still have the owner's manual for my much-missed SS1 1600. I'd be happy to post it to a good home, PM me if interested.

Bowing out

OPW 734P has gone to a new home, in Royston and I now no longer own a Scimitar. I've highly recommended the RSSOC to the new owner, but I won't be continuing as a member. I'd just like to thank everyone who has been such a help to me, in my eight years of ownership. Marshalling at Curborough has bee...

HSCC Silverstone 20/21 May

Just wanted to post and let people know that this looks like being a very good meeting, with many of the cars normally seen at the (much more expensive) Silverstone Classic event, later in the summer. Check either the Silverstone website or the HSCC website for details.
