This might be a stupid question but can you still drive a calibra with no rear hand brake shoes

Don't think it's stupid - interesting or intriguing maybe, leading me to ask why you'd do that but I don't see why you couldn't, handbrake is independent of rear pedal brakes so beyond not being able to apply the handbrake and having to use gears instead to park I'd say you're good to go. Maybe fix it before Mot though

All apart from the leaver as i don't think it will cause any problems it doesn't hit anything
