Re: Older is better :-)

a guy i am doing some work for is going to give a talk on this next week to a club
he has built cars from just a chassis just as a hobbie but as with most things there are good and bad points
i love looking in his garage well whats left as due to age he is selling everything he cant do the work on them any more if i get time i will take a picture of the one he has left
most owners will only cover 100 miles a year the rest of the time they are in a warm garage others are in daily use
personally i think it should go on 3 years or 10000/15000 miles for an mot that way it covers both arguments
the mrs mgf is insured under a classic and has a limit of i think 6000 miles a year but she has only done i think 7000 in five years or is it 4 years that she has owned it
so insurance could help in the mot talks ie if it is covered by a classic insurance then 3 years if not every year
Currently in bugsb's garage:
MGF 1.8 1999/ honda hrv 2002/ x type jag se 2005
