Quantum passed its annual road test. Just needed one 50 cents sized  hole 
patching.  $30. Whilst waiting a BMW only 10 yrs old had a failure 
sheet...[s]  amounting to the size of a chidren's comic.  I hate these 
tests... it's like going to the dentists... But I do leave with a smirk when 
it passes...

So this time I happened to mention to the BMW driver that I bought this 
Quantum for £29; 2 years ago; and it needed just a parking brake clean and a 
wash due to being stuck under a hedge for the previous 2 years to pass this 
test last year  and has now become become a little bit costly with this £15 
rust hole... :o)

Looking on the internet I've discovered that the rules for our emissions 
testing follows the oldest of either the engine, or the car.
So if I put in a 1966 engine it would need no emissions test or more likely 
if I stuck in a 2008 TDI engine it would be tested on the 1988 age of the 
car; Pre CAT and almost  impossible to fail...
