    I'd like to say the license plate using screws to change letters is in poor taste but... Well...

    Close! Stokesley. A little stop off after a fun trip up the B1257 and before hooning it over the Moors.

    Looked like Yarm highstreet. I know that car is local as he is in my local classic car club :)

    Odometer probably doesn't work properly.

    Snuck through an open gate at Spa this afternoon as they were setting up for the 6 Heures Moto de Spa. These bikes are bloody loud!

    Also, you really don’t get a sense of the elevation changes on TV..

    Annoyingly MOT testers just enter whatever is on the dash, even if you give them the true miliage :/

    What are they supposed to do? Ask people what mileage they would like as opposed to simply writing down what the odometer is saying?

    Well it's unlikely someone is lying when they give them a much higher miliage. Derp.

    And the next guy who does the mot. What does he put in. The lower number he sees which looks dodgy or the made up number again?

    I really dont think an MOT tester's job is to take the car owner's word for anything. It's an independent test.

    Indeed.

    Mileage really doesn’t matter so much on exceptionally old classics anyway.
