See the grass is getting a little longer now... haven't been out there in awhile.

So then this means that you have an early car I guess... Have you inquired about the earliest known Scimitar to still survive?

Not sure about the earliest - but they do seem to have very good survival rates. Must have something to do with the fiberglass body. I did notice that it must have been brown at some point and someone deliberatly painted it orange!

I have never seen a scimitar up close like that before. Interesting position for the spare.

The new issur of Retro Cars magazine has an article on making them faster and better handling. I have not read it yet.

Had to look in the dictionary to confirm the scimitar as the Turkish sword of lore. What a neat model name, not to mention a killer Scrabble word. I often wish that all British cars had been fiberglass. Glass worms are not nearly as voracious as rust worms:)

I've owned it for it since April or so. I just haven't got it home yet! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/jester.gif
