Douglas Hogg: 'One day' car - Reliant Scimitar GTE
Reliant Scimitar, probably the best looking shooting brake ever. And that includes the Sirocco and FF
1974 Reliant Scimitar GTE. My dad's fave car. I was with him when he picked it up new from a Reliant dealership in Taplow. Was white, had a vinyl sunroof and vinyl top, plus every upgrade to engine, auto-gearbox, hi-spec Philips radio cassette player, plus a Storno radio-phone! You rang an operator who'd patch your call thru. Those were the days :)
Engine: Rebuilt Rover mild tune (Hurricane cam, Holley 390 carb, pistons) 208 BHP on rolling road.
