66 FOJ, red MGA with white hard-top in Oswestry. It was wearing a proud "daily-user" look.

It's a replica - DVLA shows it as a Cobretti Viper (and 3.5 litre), in any case, given that you can't make a car look newer than it is, a plate like that could only go on a modern.

Actually the bonnet catches aren't too bad - here's a genuine one I photographed in the paddock at Oulton Park back in 1970:

I just thought that a couple of vintage door handles for opening a bonnet was a bit.... I don't know....extreme? (And as it's 'modern', H&S of mown-down pedestrians?) :lol:

Well, I suppose if you're trying to create an impression of originality, best to do it the way it was done back then? As for pedestrian H&S, maybe they were fitted post SVA? :)
