Not sure if it’s my TV, but the music is louder than the owner’s voice.

Great Video and brought back happy memories of my Dad’s 1971 Scimitar GTE also in red, with me squeezed in the back as a 7 year old along with my brother, mum and dad and our dog on the way to our caravan on the Kent coast. Life seemed so much simpler then! A cool car in the 70’s and equally cool even now.

Reliant Scimitar? Who knew?? With the mods you’d think Dave would track it. And he does! Very interesting machine and love the sound!

Great to see a piece on the Scimitar. Having been a young kid in the 70’s with a one track mind for cars, I enjoyed spotting a purple Scimitar every day on the way to school.

Awesome piece. I had no idea about the Scimitar. I’ll bet Dave surprises lots of folks with what it can do.
I have always been a fan of Tourings. My first was a Volvo 245 Manual, on to an A6 Avant Quattro, and an E91 328xi. Unfortunately, all of the SUV buying, mouth breathing lemmings here in the States are killing the wagon. Sigh.
Happy 50th to the three of you this year!

Always hankered after a Scimitar GT/E, this is a lovely sounding example.

As a Capri and wagon lover, this makes perfect sense. It’s like a shooting brake Capri. I also love the stories of regular folk enjoying long term relationships with unique cars. Well done Dave!
