The gist of it is that the Mayor is proposing to extend the area in October 2021 to include everywhe...

Re: BRA 289 in the Netherlands

David .You are right - the position of the battery threw me. I thought it was on the flat shelf in front of the bulkhead which is found on Mk1s - in fact it is supported on a tray cantilevered from the vertical mk2 firewall . The square section BRA chassis is visible in the same picture. I like the ...

Re: BRA 289 in the Netherlands

Re: The Government consultation is now out

Thank you for some well thought through summaries. It is difficult to work out whether the intention is simply to tighten up the rules on tax free 'historics' or to shake up all the law surrounding the registration and use of modified vehicles.
