|About 15 Scortchers survive and this one (top), seen at the
1997 European Kit Car Show in Chatham Historic Dockyard is believed to be
the only automatic running. According to the owner, automatic transmission
is a must because you need both hands for hanging onto the steering wheel!
Another Scortcher, this time manual transmission but with full engine cover and windscreen, was captured on film at the Yeovil Festival of Transport, August 1997. (photos: R. Porter)
