Successful MOT yippee

Just wanted to share our excitement... after 6 years of hard work rebuilding this car .. we finally got road-legal clearance.

Despite some misgivings..the Contrôle Technique (MOT) was in fact a doddle...since the car is so old (90) that modern testing methods could not be used. Only the unladen weight could be confirmed using the standard machinery.

The Technicien simply satisfied himself that the car did run.. and could stop when required. (though he had some difficulties with the unusual arrangement of the pedals..)
Phew.. glad that is over... now we can chitty-chitty-bang-bang around the village to our heart's delight.

I see it

Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
