Yahoooo! Got my SE5a in Germany today

Post by Pepe » Mon Apr 09, 2012 7:10 pm

Hello guys,

today I bought my rolling resto basis. Scimitar SE5a 1974, 4 Speed, White, black inner, Currently the braking system is down, rear axle has been out. This is the first to be done, followed by seats and headlights.

Let's see how it goes :)

I am in Cologne, Car is around 150km from here.

EDIT: 4 Years of searching are over

Hey.

Reg ID is 93X6227. Engine No. follows, but cannot be guaranteed that it is still the same. Ex-UK licence plate was JYT607N.
Car is white in its original paint (or whats left of it). Black interieur. Build date ??/1972, SE5a.

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

Hey Christian

Na sowas!
Du wohnst in Köln und Du fährst einen Se5a? Ich auch!

Wäre doch schön, sich mal kennenzulernen!

Ich wohne in Ehrenfeld und habe mein Auto jetzt seit fast 3 Jahren. Meld Dich doch mal! Du kannst mich auch unter 0176 617 277 39 erreichen.

Schöne Grüße!

Ingo

Welcome Ingo!
Nice to know about yet another Scimitar owner in Germany.

Ingo:
Ich have keine Problem damit, dass du in Deutsch antwortet. Es ist erlaubt in dieses Forum. Aber das grösste Teil des Forums ist Englischsprachig. Ausser den Deutschen verstehen nur einige der Engländer, Niederländer und Dänen Deutsch.
Nur Deutsch, Französich, Niederländisch usw. ist erlaubt in das "Overseas Owners / Europe" Forum. Please continue in English in the other fora. It is no problem to post bilingual, when one of the languages is English.

I don't mind the odd mail in Deutsch Erik - I can read a lot of it - but I can't write it.

My wife is much better than I am having working for a German publishing Co - it was all a long time ago in the early 70's.
