My 16 Valve is back on the road.

After many years anticipating the day, one has moved from the SORN side back to the Licensed side.
There has never been anything wrong with the car that prevented it being on the road, merely time and other projects but it was getting to the stage of now or never.

Here it is with a years MOT :mrgreen:

Edit

Taken a couple of days later on a run before a storm just after a transmission oil change. It is really running nicely and it got back home dry :D

Thank you Mike :P It is strange knowing I can go to the garage, turn the key and then go for a drive. I have had it a long time but it feels like a new car just know.
