I shouldn't be that surprised because it's only done 800 miles since the last one. I was worried about the silencer. I discovered a hole the day before the test, patched it up hurriedly and the man says there is another small one alongside it.

Looks as though a slice of my pension may be going Moss's way unless there are any other suppliers.

It's always good to get the ticket for another year.

Well done

No Rick. The 10/4 really should have some attention to the bodywork. It's sad that a car which is only 77 years old should start to rust so soon. It didn't have any rust when I restored it in 85. Perhaps it's my fault.

If I can get the brakes on the special to pull up evenly, over 30mph, I shall be sending that for MOT.

Pigtin, it has to be worth seeking out any old motor factors in your area for the exhaust. I have one near me who has a loft full of obsolete silencers, front pipes etc.
