    Yes, I did own it,went to Brisbane area Australia he bought the trailer also,the plan was to keep the trailer and look at buying a Formula Ford,spoilt my plans!Visited the car few years back,he had the motor out ,looked a bit sad,he had also imported a Mistral from NZ and had that there.
    Conventiional spaceframe set up with Triumph front suspension etc.When I bought it from the then owner in Siverdale he had it stored in an old chock shed,looked just like a barn find when I went to view it.!!

    Whilst I was struggling with a fibreglass jigsaw puzzle, Dave Giddens loaned me his second Capri 3 Litre for the Classic Trial. Reading through my diary I see that Geoff Bonham also offered me the MG BGT that I eventually bought from him and returned to me a month or two ago.

    Clive Taylor & Phil Foulkes both consistently quicker in MG Midgets than less highly modified MGBs.

    Given the popularity of Reliant Scimitars, I have always been surprised how few made it to the tracks, especially in the ERC series. Kim's SE5 and Terry's SE4 are the only ones that have appeared.

    There were quite a few Scimitars racing in the early '80s. Of course Dave and Richard then graduated to racing their Marcos's instead and my father started setting himself on fire in a rotary Chevron so that reduced the numbers by three.....

    Dad in his Scimitar and then entertaining the crowds in his Chevron....

    Funny you should say that Paul, as not only were Dave and Richard Scimitar and Marcos owners, but also Phil Jackson - who I have never met, but he was restoring a V4 Marcos to an incredibly high standard. Good pics!

    Caught up with Dave (& Carole) last month, as they are regulars at MGCC meetings and events - and one of their daughters was best buddies with my wife's daughter. Small world.

    Yes, Scimitars were running back in the days of the annual Le Mans team races, so were Lotuses, Daimler SP250's, Morgans, Bucklers etc. and several others we no longer see out on track.

    I may have posted it earlier but the reason 'Reliant' starts with an 'R' is because when Raleigh bicycles, who were making their 3 wheeler, stamped many components with an 'R' for Raleigh. When production ceased, to concentrate on bicycles, previous Raleigh managers involved with the car, bought up all the remaining stock and shifted production from Nottingham to Tamworth, and as the stock was stamped 'R', had to come up with an appropriate name.

    Apologies to those who remember my earlier post - and some of these images have been posted before.

    Terry's SE4. Could this be the same car as in Ross's post, with the small Union Jack flag on the radiator grille? It isn't in exactly same place, but near enough! Often it is small details like this that help with identification.

    The Sabre Six is probably my favourite. Looks nice with wire wheels. Famed UK motorsport photographer Robin Rew ran one but the one pic I have of his at Curborough is a bit fuzzy.

    I need to clear a bit of a backlog of all the stuff ready to upload, as when I go away in a little over three weeks time, I will be taking rather a lot of photographs and based on my 2016 solo visit, it took me almost three months just to wade through them all, chuck out the duff ones and repeats, crop, collate and file, let along copy, shrink and upload to TRS. It will probably take even longer this time.

    So I may be posting more than once a day.

    On my travels, between August 25th and September 9th will be:

    Grimsthorpe Speed Trials
    Maybe Donington Museum, but not sure about that, given the slimmed down collection of interesting stuff, but I will be in the area.
    I was hoping for a return to the Coventry Transport Museum, but that is looking increasingly doubtful - sorry Rhys.
    British Heritage Museum at Gaydon.
    The Morgan factory
    Haynes Sparkford Museum - and hopefully a tour of the restoration workshop.
    National Motor Museum at Beaulieu
    Goodwood Revival for three days.

    A lot of repeats, but I just hope the cameras stand up to it! I have decided to take two DSLR bodies and two lenses (plus the compact), just in case. Spare batteries, SD cards and chargers of course.

    Back to 2003...

    Sorry if some aren't as sharp as they should be - blame the scanner for most of them.

    Fast forward to the Auckland Speed Show, last month. I don't go every year and at $25 each plus car parking, it isn't exactly cheap for the two of us. But, some of the static displays were stunning, especially the customised cars.

    ...see what I mean? Check out underneath. I bet that if this went to a VTNZ testing station, it would be over the pit for a lot longer than most and they'd be calling the other staff over to check it out for a 'second' opinion.
