Default That time of year again

Ok, it was a couple of weeks ago, but it was MoT time for the Tank.

Just to string this out, my 'modern' (the Mondeo) has recently had a new EGR valve (), a new turbo hose () and a replacement windscreen.

So when the Volvo was due its MoT, I dragged it out of the garage, evicted one of the resident spiders (I wasn't quite quick enough to catch the other one), and took it to my friendly local garage. And the dread news was...

straight pass, no advisories!!!

Officially, it's done 0 miles since last year's test. But that's cos the odometer's packed up...

So I really must treat the old girl to a replacement gearbox, so's she can go out places again.
