It's the chassis that counts and that it remains unmodified. That's also the reason you don't need an IVA test. The DVLA regs identify it as the original car, despite the replacement body. Also the year of manufacture remains that of the donor car, not the rebody date, hence the exemptions. That's my understanding anyway, don't quote me !!

The Classic Nostalgia event at Shelsley Walsh today attracted some great cars, both in the competitive hill climb and in the spectator area.
When I arrived I was parked next to an immaculate, original AC Ace. Most of the competition cars were 60's, 70's and 80's plus a few earlier ones and specials. A Cummings powered Railton Special was the car for me. 6.6 litre with supercharger and turbo charger in series ! Apparently 950nm of torque at 1500 rpm ! The guy wasn't shy to drive it hard either !

I did have a ticket, but I'm heavily committed building a fence along the side of my daughter's garden next door. It's the triplet of the ones I built either side of my own garden. However, this was over ten years ago and it seems that the 9' concrete H posts and 12" concrete gravel boards have got a lot heavier over the years. Anyway, I had a touch too much sun on Saturday and the thought of being stuck in a traffic jam in the Monaco on the way back tipped the scales .

More on the Railton here (towards the bottom of the page).

Regards, Mick

Everyone was melting by the close on Sunday !
Prescott Vintage Sports Car club event is on the 7 - 8 August, I've booked the Saturday, maybe not so hot for that one !

I've got my car listed on ebay and the car&classic website. Lots of interest and page views ! The car needs to be seen in the flesh, the reaction at Shelsley was extremely positive and I wouldn't be surprised if I don't get a sale at one of the shows coming up.
The price I'm asking is £35k but obviously open to offers ! Having spoken with Gary he suggested that I'm in the right ball park but so few Scimitar based examples have come to the market its hard to value., we will see !

I was hoping to see your car at Shelsey Walsh, I was there on the Sunday and looked all over but just couldn't find it. It was a really good day out anyway so thanks for the recommendation.

Good luck with the sale

I parked on the edge of the spectator parking in the morning then moved into the club area for the afternoon. See the photos I posted above to work out where I was !
Plenty more events coming up, Shelsley again this Sunday , Prescott, Tewkesbury and Broadway coming up in the next few weeks too. Might see you at one of those. I've posted more details in the General Chat section.

https://www.bromyardspeedfestival.co.uk/ For the Sunday event this week.

Think I need to go to Specsavers. Will keep a look out more carefully if I'm able to get to any of the other events
