Auto Retro / French Scimitars in the spotlight

I grew up in a blue Ami Super station wagon, my dad was also a "Citroeniste". Do you recognize the neighbor of my Scimitar in my brother's garage? IMG-20181113-WA0000b.jpg Ah ah ... you too have been traveling in the boot of a blue Ami8 station wagon :doh: :hurrah: ? We seem to have a lot in common...

Well done, great coverage. Thanks Jim ! I will buy a couple of extra magazines from the newsagent to add to my subscriber copy + free copy (since I took part in the poll) and the one that Xavier gave me already :wink: Good to keep with the logbooks of the cars for a future owner - the later the bet...

Wanted GTC, late Sabre ... or Sabre Six (the grail)

After nearly 5 years of Scimitar ownership (with an SE5, an SE6a and an SST under my custody) I am enjoying every single day of it - even when they throw a tantrum 😅 - Recently a good friend of mine - Xavier Audiau, chief editor of an auto magazine, who also owns an SS1 - asked me if we should buy t...

Auto Retro / French Scimitars in the spotlight

My Chim was in number 1, 2 and 3 of the photos. The Ami 8, good choice too! Sometimes I'm looking for an Ami Super but either they are rusted or too expensive (or both). Thanks for the copy of Auto Retro, I've took care of not reading them in order to keep the excitation of buying the magazine next...

Auto Retro / French Scimitars in the spotlight

Fantastic looking article, well done to all concerned! I must admit my French is a little rusty, so I'll need to read the text at a fairly steady pace (!), but judging by the photos they've really gone into it in some depth. Thanks to Fred for keeping us informed, and thanks to all the owners who p...

Auto Retro / French Scimitars in the spotlight

Thanks for the date, Fred. I asked my newsagent last week when the magazine would arrive - but I thought it was the january issue :roll: 80 photos of GTE's and GTC's, that should attract some attention! Now about the five or six french Coupés ... Hello Chris, Oh, those issue numbers & months are so...

Nice! I have participated to the one regarding the Chimaera recently, it's a good idea to collect owners' feedbacks. Hello Zeb :wink: ... oh what a coincidence, I also took part in this article on the Chimaera :mrgreen: It's indeed an interesting exercise to collect testimonials from actual owners,...
