    You can't beat the DVLA, they're just too powerful. I need to let them have their depraved fun and maybe they'll eventually get bored and let me have my logbook.

    Today the 2cv was sadly evicted from its nice warm garage. The house it belongs to is completing tomorrow so it’s been moved back home, unfortunately out in the open.  It’s not so sad for the new owners though, the fellas into classic Minis so the garage will soon have another old motor inside it. 
     
    I took what I thought was a charged battery but it turned out to be flat so “The Pickler” had to be man handled onto the Dolly. It was at this point I noticed fuel pouring from a perished fuel line behind the OSF wheel. This was easily remedied with a new piece of hose and a couple of clamps. 
     
    Don't ask me how, but I managed to rip the hood. I’m pretty annoyed with myself but I had anticipated that a new hood would soon be part of the equation as this one looks badly faded and appears to have shrunk, it’s pulled taut on the roof press studs so much I can imagine the whole body going “ping” and collapsing. The small hole has been repaired with some tape but I’m now on the hunt for a new hood. 
    On the V5c front I received a letter from the DVLA last week. How thrilling! Upon picking up the prized brown envelope I could instantly tell it didn’t have a logbook inside and sure enough it contained my initial application for a V5c  complete with the cheque for £25 and a letter explaining that it had been rejected because the cheque had been altered. I’d written the incorrect month in error but had changed it to the correct month, adding my initials. I can only think it was this that prompted the application to fail, although the post mistress saw it and said it was fine. I wrote out a new cheque and returned it the same day. Fingers crossed it goes somewhere this time.

    Actually, don't do that. Buy this minibus instead. It costs £4350 and is in Hinckley.
