My first Scimitar for sale in Wales

My first Scimitar went missing, presumed dead, more than 20 years ago, which is just as well as my wife would be less understanding than yours if it appeared on eBay!! Look forward to seeing progress...... :lol: In fairness though, I’ve only got one other Scimitar at the moment, and the S2000 is fo...

Corky's Scimitars and other short stories

Cheers Craig. That’s a meaty brace! The brace that was on the DET manifold on the white SS1 wasn’t as industrial as that, and it broke :roll: . So I’ll aim for something substantial like yours. Another issue is the limited space to get a nut onto the lower stud towards the front of the engine. It’s ...

My first Scimitar for sale in Wales

It turned out to be quite an easy decision. I had a good chat on the phone with the seller, he’d actually come over to view the car with the original buyer. He’s a real petrol head, and we just picked up the conversation where we’d left off 14 years earlier. The story of how the car got into that st...

My first Scimitar for sale in Wales

Thanks Alistair, long time no see. I hope all is well with you too.

Once it arrives, it’ll be in the thread somewhere. Last time I owned it the forum didn’t even exist, we were using Yahoo groups.

Corky's Scimitars and other short stories

I've got two tubular DET manifolds, a cracked and pretty knackered one I bought on eBay for pennies to see if I could adjust it to fit an ET, and a good one I got from Craig for the DET build. Ben C has had a couple of new flanges cut for us both, so we can flip the manifold for a top mount turbo, I...

My first Scimitar for sale in Wales

I’ve exchanged messages with the seller :wink: Come on Steve You know that you want it. Stop faffing about. Then again if I remember correctly you don’t like auto boxes! Not even on a GTC! Not a lover of GTC autos at all. C3 and the 2.8 just doesn't provide the right combo for me. The torquier Esse...

Max power exhaust tips :lol:
They are complete back boxes and were on the car when I bought it. The rest of the exhaust was shot, so I replaced it with a stainless system and kept those back boxes. They sounded awesome when going under a bridge or through a tunnel.

My first Scimitar for sale in Wales

My wife just said “why don’t you buy it back ?”. Not sure I could bear to go and see it.

It’d just had a rebuild of the BW35 and new weather seals and rubbers all round.
