thanks for the heads up, spent most of this week on a plane so I had plenty of reading time! Good article. Out of interest do we know what has happened to the project car that was auctioned earlier in the year?

Well, according to the auction house link, it was sold for £26,950, so I presume it's disappeared into someone's workshop? Perhaps Tony knows who was the lucky buyer? Hopefully it'll emerge at some point in the not too far distant future?

I was at the auction and spoke to the successful bidder. He was a bit cagey and although I gave him our contact details we haven't heard from him since. I now wonder if he was bidding on behalf of someone else.

Regarding the ex. Works rally car, I have been tying to contact the new owner via the mobile number that he gave me at the auction. I'm very pleased to report that, via a friend of his, he has made contact. He is a long time Scimitar man, currently owning two straight six Coupė projects. Hopefully we will now be able keep track of his progress.

That's good news Tony, thanks for letting us know :D I, and I'm sure many others, look forward to hearing more about the car :)

I know, I'm sorry, it's an obsession!

However, one of them has to go!
