If anyone has this month's copy and could scan the Editorial relating to Andy Saunders and SVA I and ACE would be grateful
We're putting together a press release on the subject.wondered why it wasn't mentioned on here as it scared the bejesus outta me.
Trying to ignore the legislation stuff at the minute.
It passed and is road legal.What was the end result for Andy with his Bentley?
The thing with the Bentley is that it IS a modified body shell, roof chopped, and it WAS meant to go for SVA. Nothing has changed to catch him, just that the law finally caught up with him.It passed and is road legal.
The thing was that Andy 'Fired from the Hip' with E-mails that were sent out to all and sundry, the essence of which is what is in the ACW editorial.
ACE have been firefighting ever since, with the kind of posting that Kev put above.
If nothing else this shows that you need to check your sources and find out the facts of things before just jumping in withn both feet.
Exactly, and what a lot of people don't realise is that there were no categories in SVA that the car could have fitted into without tests that could have cost up to £8000, so it was IVA that allowed the car to be on the road legally.The thing with the Bentley is that it IS a modified body shell, roof chopped, and it WAS meant to go for SVA.

Thanks for the comments Wayne..whens youre car going in for the test.i take it as one of the ace team you are going to lead by example.
wasnt the bentley tugged as he wanted to swap no plates.no other reason.
thought we were getting our own street rod class.
all the rage a few years back.whats happened with that then.
no big anouncments that its not going ahead.
OK, let's get some facts for you Wayne.not jumping in with both feet.
simple questions.im asking for facts not stating any.
ref the early days of sva.
this was back in what the late 90,s.
what sort of involvement did you have then and why was nothing ever really mentioned about sva until what say 5 years back when all the scaremongering started.
what happened to the lost years.
back to youre car.
all the suspension and chassis was only altered a couple of years ago,when you turned it into a gasser.
so how can you get away from not putting it through sva.
I don't see anywhere that ACE have told people to "Get their cars SVA'd" Wayne and you know that as well as I do.nope has youre car.
im the same as the other 99 percent.
but then im not the face of ace .posting on forums telling folks to get there cars sva,d.and scaremongering.
no mention on this thread about the bently only being pulled because of a number swap.
but then i noticed ace dont do that when the topic crops up instead they like to convince the gullable that sva is the only solution and were all doomed.
lets go back to the street rod class.
what sort of support did it lack.
what the support of the owners of the hundred of so cars built each year that could of taken advantage of it,if it had worked.
at the time we were asked not to contact dvla/vosa direct as it may of hindered the process.
why no big announcement that it failed.
an easy question for ace.
when excactly are we all going to be taken off the road.
its a simple one.
after 5 odd years of listening to the doom and gloom merchants.
a date would be nice.
do i have time for another build
