Dave found a Callendar Doune Show plaque, a plastic barmatt from Spain and I found a pair of ladies knickers shoved in (a discreet corner of) my Devon 64 Interior..
That area was obviously a lovingly fondled one if a little honky after a few years..

What difference is a tax disc or MOT ?

Seems crazy sometimes how difficult they make it. I assume they want chassis number & registration linked as they have no record ?

Good luck Image

Yep, that’s what they want, I’ve got photos of it being dragged out the barn, the stick on number plate that’s on the bumper is clearly years old as is the rear number plate which you’d never be able to age like it is.

I can get letters from 2 guys that remember it from before it went in the barn and now I’ve got a tax disc but still the best I can get is an age related plate and that one will sit on the DVLA list until someone turns up with the paperwork.

Unbelievable, I’m gutted but I’ll keep searching, I’m not beaten just yet.

Don't give in, surely an old photo, mot or previous owner would have to materialise soon.

Work continues stripping back the bad or rusty sections, the front panel had been replaced in the 60s but not very well, so together with the rotten window sections we decided best go for a new WW front panel, so out with the old!

Dave isn’t messing around, only picked up the front panel this morning with him and it’s already in place, get in.

I posted a load before the server issues and they were all lost, will crack on and re-sort them.

Be back soon!
