Barons 11 December 2018 SE4 - £12K!!

The problem was £2.5k would have bought a house in those days - my late Father bought a brand new bungalow in a desirable Derbyshire village for £4.5k in the early sixties......& 3.5k was a helluva lot of dosh (well, to me: anyhow, it was academic, I just hadn't got it... :cry: ) in the early eighti...

Barons 11 December 2018 SE4 - £12K!!

So Barons were pretty much spot-on with their guide price...Looks a lovely car & probably well-bought at the price. Comments about the chassis reminded me that, many years ago, I was interested in a white 'Straight Six' that was for sale at £300 - (yes, I'm going back a bit & to put it in perspectiv...

New member from Plymouth

The very first time I have seen a picture of the tubes behind the B-post......just shows that those people who worry about the tubes being cut to allow (or have allowed) a 'Webasto', or similar, to be fitted, are probably fretting for no good reason.... :shock: Have you managed to resolve the situat...

This is how to write an advert

Strangely enough I ran one of those for a little while, earlier this year, selling it to a ladyfriend who is still using it,as far as I know.............a rare car, especially now - in fact the V6 seems far more common...(which must be the smallest V6 used in any vehicle being 1800cc., I think...)

NEC Classic Car Show - 9/11th November

Love that gorgeous white SE5, perfectly set off by the 'PA' wheels - (what mine should look like in an ideal world! :roll: )

I think I will have to hope to win the lottery to get to the NEC show, reading all the comments. Nice piccies, Mike.....

About the new black EFL90 FORD oil filter

The last couple of years or so I have used an EFL90, latterly got from an ebay ad. (2324 9743 9457) 'sandicliffeshopuk'....price now £11.99incl. P&P - up from £7.52incl. when I bought it. I've fitted two - probably both from the same source & have not been happy: the cold/start-up psi. has been pret...

Scimitar for Sale

A bit pessimistic? What parts are gonna be useable? Gearbox, maybe. Rear axle, maybe. And not much else. As for being a resto project, I don't think so. There are many better prospects out there if you look hard and long enough. As I said, I'm being truthful when I said I wouldn't be happy paying m...

No overdrive, so what would you do?

I, personally, love overdrives - as well as my ScimitarSE5, I've experienced 'o'drives on MGB's & Rover P4's; & consequently wouldn't thank you for a 5speed conversion.......but have to admit that the ratios on the box are less than ideal, due to the much-documented gap between 2nd & 3rd. i understa...

Weight SE5

....The figure of 2,240lbs is imprinted on what is left of my cabbaged brain, for some reason!
....However, having just had a look in the 'Owner's Handbook' - (Repro.) the 'Kerb' weight is given as 2,500lbs (SE5)...Max. towing weight: 20cwt.

Stolen cameras

Browsing the old-car papers I saw an article that said the Police were having a good percentage rate on recovery of stolen vehicles.........modern ones, however, as they tended to be fitted with trackers - not so, classic vehicles, apparently, as they tended not to be fitted with the aforementioned ...
