    WoF done last Friday, so all road legal again - and a restart on the bonnet for the last two afternoons. Still work in progress.

    What did you do about the "illegal" roll cage in the end Ray?

    Well, after sulking for a while, even contemplating setting fire to it, I applied some lateral thinking. If you look at a Triumph Stag for example, plus any number of cabriolets, the roll over protection is part of the design. I spent some time with an MSNZ scrutineer and posed the question "If the roll cage forward of the centre hoop was hidden, did it actually exist?"

    He agreed with me that if it was hidden, it could not exist, therefore I embarked on a mission to hide it.

    It was at that point that lying awkwardly across the race seats, drilling for attaching a headlining, that I put my back out, requiring a(nother) spinal fusion, but by the time ACC had approved the op, the nerve down to my left hand was stuffed and never regrew.

    I then decided to take the angle grinder to it (the cage, not the left arm) and remove it, but a day before I was going to attack, the LVVTA sent word via the Certifier that as the car was a) old and b) repowered, that they wanted the cage left in.

    So I have a LVVTA plate accepting the cage (which was built to the MSNZ design rules, pre 40mm tube) but not MSNZ legal, despite any number of cars with at least 200bhp more than mine, running legally with similar cages.

    As I hung up my helmet early 2016, although I have a logbook for the car, I never have had the chance to compete, but I haven't totally ruled out a MGCC track day at some stage.

    But it seems that someone at LVVTA was a bit careless by the time they got to the brakes.

    ERC, thanks for the C and C photos, lots of ragtops too !!.

    The Big Healey, a BJ8 - last of the 3000's Am unsure whose it is ??
    Do you have another shot with the Rego as it looks a bit like " LM3000 ".
    That car was BRG all over originally and later when Les Meggett got it [ hence the LM prefix ] but under Les ownership became BRG over Ivory.

    The photo the car appears to be Black over Silver.

    New comment ; Not the " LM3000 " - formerly " GM171 " plated car

    Think the car is this one " CSQ300 " Black over an unusual shade of silver - photo by Nigel Watts at the 2019 Brit - Euro Show. Black and White but a late model BJ8 and no front bumper

    Cheers Ray

    Looking at both photos - those side mirrors are the same - rectangular ones off the 'screen pillars - didn't notice that before.

    Span Farm Sprint, Glendene and I think, December 1986, but can anyone please clarify the exact date, so that these pics can be filed?

    Scans taken when the scanner was playing up a bit, so not the best.

    As my Riley Elf was in primer, the scrutineer rejected it, so I never did get to run it in anger.

    Pardon my ignorance but why would the scrutineers reject a car in primer?

    Thanks Milan. I was only a month out!

    Yes Nigel, I wondered that at the time, given it wasn't exactly a public event. No refund of entry fee of course, but I was wanting to shakedown the car and thought a low key event like that would have been fine. Seems I was wrong. Probably rejected due to an interpretation of presentation rather than condition.

    Personally, I think it is no worse than those cars currently running matt black, but these are disguised with decals. Mine wasn't.

    Ray. This is the rule from the 1988 MANZ Scrutineering Schedule that meant your car could be rejected but it doesn't explain why the rule existed.

    I'll probably go to the Ellerslie Concours tomorrow, as I haven't been for several years.

    Not sure of the date(s) of these, so also in the yet to be filed pile. If anyone can fix a year or years, that would be appreciated. I can take a guess at some and by a process of elimination, compare them with other years. The number-plates are also a means of eliminating earlier years.

    Thankfully, Ellerslie went ahead, as a few hour later and it would have been cancelled - at huge cost and inconvenience to 100's of people.

    Rileys. I still have fond memories of my RM Riley, but when I realised that the restoration was beyond me and sold it, I still hankered after a decent one, but they are considerably longer than any of my current vehicles, so garage space would be an issue. They drive so well, even with the 1.5 litre engine, so the 2.5 would be a real cracker.

    For diehard purists, not a real Riley, but I still have a soft spot for them.
