Who was Adrian Ball?
I'm not certain of his official title, but I think he was effectively Reliant's publicity man / graphic designer for much of the key period. Many of the brochures, Owners' handbooks, etc., say something like "Designed by Adrian Ball & Associates" on them.
Yes, Roger is correct, Adrian Ball was Reliant's PR man and produced the Reliant Review News papers.

Here's a list of Scimitar GT magazine articles I have so far
Dave are there any colour pictures of AUE38B in its early days , just wondered if it was always brown ? Not the best colour for a prototype car that you want to show off.
Hi,

Sadly I don't have any colour photos of AUE 38B from the early days, only from early 1980's when Barry Herber owned it. All the magazine articles I have of it are in black and white.

Cheers

Dave

Colour registered Silver - however it was brown when I owned it and it had Non standard wheels fitted ( Cosmic )

Colour registered Green - This car was a very bright green and in a very poor condition when I owned it

Registration number ATN 48 J
Chassis number 425118
Colour registered Blue - Believed to be possibly the last Coupe made - now owned by GW - the car was totally original and intact

Registration number ORE 243 F
Chassis number 400 ?

Registration number CRE 801 E
Chassis number 400457

Apologies if these are already noted.


Blessed are the Cheese makers

That one is a bit promiscuous - after Nick it went to Corky for a while before moving to Devon (I think) and through the hands of a few dealers.

Right, we are online with .png files of the list sorted by 1/ chassis number and 2/ registration number.
I'll see if I can improve quality in due course ...
