Thanks to Wim

Thought these photos of my business partners se5 might be suitable for this thread! I believe he owned it for several years during the 80's and used it for towing racing dinghies and yachts. Would be interested if anyone knows of its current whereabouts as its still showing as taxed and tested on D...

Ah, I had (of course) forgotten the complicated history of GBG !

I would have thought something as important as a Coupé GTE would leave some photographic evidence, but I have nothing.
Cue Dave Poole :wink:
Which coupe GTE?? Certainly not CBG :wink:

I've just noticed that the poor derelict FNJ has some strange bodywork modifications -
Look at the right-hand indicator and the blanked-off grille :shock:
It had a new front end fitted, so perhaps not cut out yet??

Well the DVD arrived today. I've watched the 1963 Monte Carlo rally and it features 6 EUE and 7 EUE. I'm sure it was 7 EUE coming down the hill as it looked as if it was number 172 on the door as far as I could tell. I look forward to seieng the rest of the DVD and watch the 1965 Monte Carlo to see ...

Hi Dave, The Missus was out this morning, so I had a chance to watch the 1960 and the 1963 Montes' on the DVD, and about 10 minutes from the end of the '63 you will see (what I think is) 42 ENX coming down the hill, no comment from Raymond Baxter, though. Perhaps he preferred to not talk about Reli...

For my birthday, as well as the Ladybird book (what didn't come in the post :) ) I received the "Best of '60's Monte Carlo Rallies" DVD which features the "catastrophic" 1965 Monte. IIRC 237 entries, 35 finishers; 2 min 15 secs in, you can see 660XYB (entry 99) disembarking from the ferry, and at 1...

I don't know it, but it would be great to add a picture of it for my Scimitar database if you have any of it. I have pictures of BPB 991H and BPB 992H 8)

Possible scammer selling Scimitars on eBay

Hi All, This look a bit suspicious if you ask me. The same seller is selling over a 2000 other cars in his listings and there seems to be different emails to confirm purchase price???
