There are sonme similarities with building a modern kit car.

The editors strongly recommend subscribers read the period special building manuals to full appreciate the effort involved.

The evidence that many specials started with the best of intentions were not completed. Many builders underestimated the complexity and skill they would require.

If it was the latter an online search would get somewhere and if your car’s performance was reported at the time it would have been in one of those mags. If it was the RB Special it would be a relatively easy search of course. I’m not sure either. It was the RB Special and it came from the horses mouth in magazine interviews so I’m inclined to believe it.

But what if you catch them in the act? Can you ask them nicely not to fine you? Will they say yes if you do? Can you just jump in and drive off before they stick it on?

The RAC has issued some advice on how best to deal with a traffic warden and your rights if you encounter one. What is a traffic warden? Wardens are not police officers and are employed by the local council. Making sure parking regulations are being followed and issuing penalty charge notices PCNs, or fines when they are required.
