Now't shameful about that. Your 1300 looks like an excellent example.

Mine passed it's MOT yesterday, but the wings are looking a "bit bubbly".

Thank you :) I don't intend going mad on the engine bay. I think a good rub down, treat any rust patches and paint gloss black to make it look neat. The real beauty is the exterior paintwork.

I must admit I am addicted to driving it. It does feel weird though, with all these modern cars around. There's always something to be done though. My brakes now need bleeding and/or leak investigated.

I have to wait for my log book to arrive and then register as historic vehicle and hopefully get some dosh back :)

Congrats on the MOT! I intend to continue with my MOTs too :)
