MOT passed

Hurray. Got another years MOT. The car was well recieved at the garage, "a real car for a change"

Only got a few advisories: I reckon that is good. The front wheel bearing have some play and the handbrake only just passed.

Was surprised that my 1969 Vitesse needs a better more efficient hand brake than a modern car. Why so? The handbrake on a Vitesse is a secondary brake because of the single circuit main brakes, so must be 25% efficient. On a modern car a handbrake is the third brake system after the dual circuit brakes, so can be as little as 16%.
