Bonjour
je m'appele andré je viens de faire l'acquisition d'une SS1 1600 et j'aurai besoin d'un renseignement,la suite est en anglais
Hello
your contact information was provided by Chris Johnson
I just bought in UK a SS1 1600 and I will need some advice. The cooling radiator of the car is in bad condition and I have to change it, question is there an adaptable model of another brand, if not where can I find a new radiator.
cordially
André

Salut André, bienvenue au forum.

Tu es bien rentré avec la voiture j'espère.
J'essaie de me renseigner pour le radiateur.

Et ton anglais est impeccable - pourquoi tu t'inquiétais ;-)

there's large (430mm wide x 320 high x 60 deep) and small (380mm wide x 320 high x 60 deep) Polo rads - can't remember which one I bought

edit - just checked and i bought the larger of those two for the SS1 there are others like this 430 x 380 and others up to about 630mm

Not a direct swap by any means but seriously cheap!

AMERICAN SCIMITAR EN FRANÇAIS ?

I came across this on the web today, written in very strange french - I reckon it is an american article translated by Google 8)
I've asked Stephen if he recognises the Scimitar Dependant :lol:

Je suis tombé sur cela aujourd'hui, écrit dans un français très étrange - je crois qu'il s'agit d'un article américain traduit par Google 8)

So, apparently someone thought it would be a good idea to pinch the article, translate it into something resembling french and then post it on another site :shock:

Pour les photos il faut remercier Fred Rambert, qui était présent mais pas en Scimitar.
Pourtant il en a trois - personnellement je n'avais que deux qui marchait pas :mrgreen:

Faire un à partir de deux
Une paire de Scimitars à vendre en Belgique, un rhd en état de marche sans papiers et un lhd avec des papiers non en état de marche.
Ça fait une bonne affaire à 2 400 € ...

Auto Sport Museum Chatillon-Coligny (45)
Nouvel à ma connaissance ce musée propose pas une mais DEUX Scimitar en exposition.
Le seul en France qui détient des exemplaires de 'nos' voitures, à part le Manoir de l'Automobile à Lohéac qui présente une Sabra.

Nice one Chris, I 'll have to find time to visit there as it is located not too far from my normal route down.

I will be in Cannes during the weekend 25/26th, perhaps DarkStar might be cruising the Croisette?

It would be great to meet up, though Cannes is far too snob for people from Antibes 8)
Let me know your itinerary nearer the time bolidenoir@mac.com
