Hi All,
I have just acquired my fathers SE5a 1974 Scimitar, I was the last person to drive it in 1993, so it needs a lot of TLC.
He has had it since 1985 and it has a document registering it originally to the Home Office etc (?)
It is insured and Historic registered for Tax and MOT exemption.
I am in the New Forest area and will need some parts etc so will be grateful for advice etc at times.
Many Thanks

Welcome :D

There’s a very active ownership base not far from you in the Solent area - in fact Hampshire is surprisingly heavily populated when it comes to Scimitars and Sabres..

Welcome to the Forum;
You will find lots of helpful colleagues with lots of knowledge and experience to tap into.
If you're planning to work on the car, please start a thread, something I didn't do, and now regret it.
Don't forget to post lots of lovely pictures.
Good luck, keep the faith.
