DVLA says it was taxed and MOT'd at the beginning of the month, so someone is having fun, back on the road?

Yes, it's a well-known and very historic car (ex-works 1962 RAC Rally and 1963 Monte Carlo Rally) which has been spotted a few times in that part of the world. It's good to hear it's still out and about. :D
However, I don't think Ken is on here, AFAIK? :)
