    IVA passed only 28 years after starting!!!

    Well after 28 years my 'already a classic' Cobra passed its IVA retest this afternoon!!!!!
    The retest went fairly smoothly and he could see that I had taken all the points seriously, so was fairly flexible on a couple of items. I must say Southampton is certainly by the book and more!
    I am having to pinch myself that I will never have to think about a 2.5mm raidius or head rest heights again !!!
    Now time to fill in all my registration forms this evening and sit on my hands for the next two weeks.

    Might even make it to the next Goodwood meet if the registration is quick and my car is proven enough to go that far !

    Thanks to all those on the forum and club who have helped me get here.

    And now you'll see how bad FBB mpg is!
    Hopefully see you at Goodwood.

    Absolutely brilliant news Paul - good to see another SR on the road, especially after so long in the build - great stuff.
