That looks rather unfamiliar outside a garage. I didn't recognise it at first.
Boris's only success so far is being worse than even Theresa May.

I know, right?

It's also dirty enough it nearly qualifies for "barn find".

Does it drive like you thought it would?

I see that you got the street cleared before you drove it as there doesn't seem to be anyone around.

Yeah, it drives nicely. Steering is improved a little too.

This is a fairly quiet street, being a dead end. There were a few people driving about but that's pretty typical for here.

Is that it then? road legal, or do you have things like MOTs over there?
