An im­por­tant mo­tor­ing land­mark

Classics Monthly - - Contents -

that could eas­ily slip un­der the radar was the launch 50 years ago of the Reliant Scimitar GTE at the 1968 Earls Court Mo­tor Show. To mark the event, this is­sue in­cludes a fas­tid­i­ously re­stored ex­am­ple as a Reader’s Restora­tion, while an in­for­ma­tive his­tor­i­cal fea­ture traces the de­vel­op­ment of this very un­der­es­ti­mated two-plus-two coupè.

The Scimitar Driv­ers’ Club will no doubt be mark­ing the GTE’s half cen­tury at this year’s Lan­caster In­sur­ance Classic Mo­tor Show with Dis­cov­ery by putting on a very spe­cial dis­play re­flect­ing the event’s ‘Built to Last’ theme. Billed as ‘the big­gest and best in­door car show in the UK’, the Lan­caster In­sur­ance Classic Mo­tor Show starts on Fri­day, Novem­ber 9 and runs through to Sun­day, Novem­ber 11.
