Historic Wheels Brodie Castle Classic Car Show 2019

That's a shame Peter; I did think that was going to happen to us as the weather this morning was awful. The Brodie show is also for charity. We still had a few no shows but a reasonable turn out of visitors all things considered.

Historic Wheels Brodie Castle Classic Car Show 2019

After a very damp start things dried up and a decent afternoon encouraged a good turn out. Lots of interesting vehicles, some I had not seen before and some I was pleased to see again. 4 Scimitars - in addition to my MB14; Colin's 5a, Dick's 6a and Mark's MB47. Some photos of the day: - DSC08719.jpg...

SE5a for restoration - offers

It's the longest time I have ever owned a car, since 1997, albeit for half the time it sat unused. However it has a better chance of restoration with Josh than with me - in fact, you could say One Last Chance

SE5a for restoration - offers

Hi Jon, The white 5a is Colin from Glenlivet he does a lot of shows so you will see him about probably more than me but I will look out for a gold Maverick if you look out for a green 5a or a red Middlebridge! The car actually went away tonight. Real pleasure to meet Josh and I hope he makes the jou...

Stainless steel door frames

Having spoken to Mark Wilson about this (with Peter!) at Silverstone the main issues are the machinery to fold the bend at the top of the A post and the fact that almost every set of door frames needs considerable "fettling" to fit. Mark will correct me if I am wrong but even if he got the machinery...

Middlebridge at Silverstone

Thanks Ashley, Good to see you and Ann again and thanks for your support. Yes, MB14 performed faultlessly on the 600+ miles back up the road, as it did on the way down - it was just the bit inbetween that was slightly embarrassing! All will be explained in the next Slice/MESSage. I have yet to go th...

Silverstone Classic 26-28 July 2019

Although at Silverstone with my Middlebridge, the display on the RSSOC stand was excellent with a good range of well turned out cars. Hopefully between the 2 stands we have managed to raise the profile and awareness of the Scimitar marque. I would echo that. I know Kevin's car is exceptional but th...

Sorry to resurrect this but as the link above has gone then for reference the fuse box is the same as used in the Landrover Series III and Lightweight - 1971/85, a Lucas item 6FJ 37531 with a link between terminals 3 & 5. I replaced mine and have had no more issues. However, I recently noticed some ...

Middlebridge

Alan, Drop me an email at middlebridge.registrar@rssoc.co.uk. I am at Silverstone this weekend and will be able to chat with the others about what cars are coming to the market. An idea of your budget would be helpful. I know of 2 cars but they are at the upper end of MB valuations. There might be a...

1974 SE5a for sale Montrose

Welcome and well bought.

Worthwhile dropping the SE5 registrar Dave Speed an email to see if he has any info on it - SE5.registrar@rssoc.co.uk

Otherwise I will have a check of the archives to see if I can find any old references to it.
