      Thanks for a great show. A big thanks to the two 101 who pull me out of the mud. All I have to not is clean all the muck out of the tank.

      I sent my application to get the car registered for the road on the 27th July at 10 am by first class signed post £6.67 it weighed 1.2 kilos
      I received two letters on Saturday the 6th August.
      The return of my application pack by recorded post £10.40, the other was the V5
      The DVLA paper work was dated between the 1st to the 4th August and the recorded letter was sent on the 5th August at 1 pm.
      Either the DVLA are getting better or I just gave them enough information, they kept the V112 (no MOT required).
      So my Gaz 67b is now road registered and dated 1944 all for the sum of £55 DVLA fee and £6.67 postage.
