We have information on many of the production Coupe's (or SE4, SE4a, SE4b and SE4c), but still have a lot of of gaps. We rely on owners letting us know about ownership changes and modifications, but appreciate that sometimes you're too busy enjoying your car to find time to update us.
The register is held by the club with the ultimate aim of tracking down the fate of every one of the 1006 SE4 model Reliant Scimitars made. None of the information is shared with the commercial world and is held in a secure database purely for historical reasons. The only time I would share information from the register is when a former owner gets in touch asking about a car they once loved, then, with the current owners permission I would let them know how their old car is nowadays and, again with the current owners consent, put them in touch with their old cars so owners past and present can share a bit of history.
In order to update the current database, I am asking that every Coupe owner on this site to please send me their info again so I can make sure everything on the old records is up to date, I know this is a lot to ask but it would be a huge help, please don't worry about the risk of duplication, I'll make sure the records are checked and accurate.
I would also love to receive any pictures you have of your car for use on the list (even if it's in pieces, or not what you'd consider a show winner) and also I would need the registration number, chassis number, engine number and any stories you might have about the car (where it's been, how it's been repaired/modified, anything which tells its story).
Eventually the basic elements of the registered cars will be listed on my website (http://www.scimitargt.co.uk) for all to see but If you don't want your photos publishing but would like them in club archive please let me know.
If you haven't registered your car with the club, please let me know and I'll send you a registration form, or simply email me your details, I'll list what I need for the records below and can also email you a registration form in a word document if you send me your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org
As I say, none of the sensitive information (chassis number, location etc) on this form will be published in the public domain, but it will be kept with the Club's Coupe records.
And finally if you've written off, broken up or scrapped a Coupe, I'd like to know about that too. It would be interesting to know how many of these cars are still in use as most are now over 40 years old!!! And also it will help to prevent anyone from steeling the identity of a scrapped car.
Many thanks in advance of your help, Matt
