Scorpion Logo

Welcome to the Scorpion Engineering Web.

This is a collection of Web sites maintained by Bob Allan with help from John Ross.

The Scorpion logo is taken from a drawing of the Scorpion Imp held in the Rootes Archive Centre.

Scorpion Engineering was founded with the aim to work on cars designed by Tom Killeen (including the K19 Scorpion), Hillman Imps and also development of parts for The Imp Club. We do not sell parts, this is done exclusively by The Imp Club (Spares) Ltd.

We are also interested in the history of manufacturing in the UK and technology in general.

This Web site is put together to advertise what we do in the North West of England. It's a joint effort with Area Centres in Cheshire, North Wales, Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Derby, Lancashire, Staffordshire and previously Fylde, so we call it the "Mercia Area". The main Imp Club site is here.
