Oh great ! Then since small changes in engine size are allowed (87mm liners in
a TR3), then small changes in wheel width are allowed too, right ?

Maybe one of us needs glasses. You don't see any inconsistency in a "Concours
correct" car being considered "modified" ?

LOL ! Ok, guess I deserved that. With the hardtop on, I have a hard time even
getting myself into my Stag.

Well Gee ... Just how many modifications does it take to qualify for "stock" ?
Now I've got to add a trailer hitch, change the wheel studs to a non-original
length, add spacers under my wire wheel adapters (and hope the Concours judges
don't notice), buy a set of non-original wheels (not to mention buying a trailer
that's not factory original) ... all just to compete in the stock category ?
