Me? Never owned one.
But I did have a gold 3-litre V6 Scimitar GT Coupe - the classic of the Scimitars; still is.
I'd driven past a dealer in Oxon in early 1980s and spotted the back roofline and thought 'what's that?'
(I had been looking for another Ginetta G11 coupe (only 2 were built, I have one - blue car in pic, with Scimmi Coupe facing forward - and I'm still looking for the other missing G11 30 years on!)
Although it wasn't a Ginetta of course, I went into the dealer and I bought it (after a quick test) for 700 quid.
I had it for a couple years I think, then sold it for a 1,000 quid
Wonder if SRF 491G is still out there?
SRF 491G is still about!! A friend of mine bought it a while back from a chap in Birmingham for restoration:
Would love to see any other old pictures you have of your old Coupe.
Just found one of my old pics of the Scimmi GT. Hardly looks any different in your pics.
Except those bloody awful wheel trims - must see if I can find more of mine, pretty convinced it had wide steels with chrome caps?
Will post up more if I find any. Sure I do have one or two somewhere.
Is that a Talbot Lotus Sunbeam in the garage, 3rd pic?
Always had a soft spot for Lotus/Sunbeams and was at the Chrysler dealers like a shot when the Lotus Sunbeams didn't sell as well as expected and the overstock of 'genuine' Loti/Sunbeam alloys were sold off - the alloys were made in Belgium and obviously Chrysler ordered far too many of them.
I got a brand new set for a song.
The steel wheels on my kit car GRS I had just built (Chrysler Hunter based - in the background behind my Scimmi) were chucked over the wall and the spanking new 6J x 13 Sunbeam Loti alloys fitted.
Unusual but distinctive alloy, even today. Much preferred this wheel on the Lotus Sunbeams than the Minilites many fitted (usually lookalike ones).
Bit off the Scimmi subject, but hey... will be back if I find more pics of SRF 491G (great to know it's still out there!)
