The Doctors Coupe - SRE 353G

The coupe was intended to replace the XJR, but some how I decided to keep it. However, it was a lot rustier than I thought & has taken up a bit of time. If there's any interest in it, I'll put something in the non-Scimitar section.

How was your road Scim then James?

MOT exemption

I rang to book my van in this morning (it runs out 2nd April), the MOT station told me about the extension. It's for cars running out after 30th March.
