Re: Consultation on changing emissions standards for kit cars

Excellent news, and thanks to everybody that took the time to respond to this proposal,it seems that for once the minority were actually heard. As Wolfie (citizen) Smith used to say...."Power to the people" :-)

Re: MGB V5 and Rear Axel £125

You could have a problem with this. When a historic vehicle changes hands now, there is a possibility that the new owner will be asked to provide photographic proof that the V5 corresponds with the car in question. DVLA are aware that people sell just the V5 identities of historic cars, without owni...

Re: BRA 289 on eBay

Nige, Your last sentence indicates that the rebuilding of any old car into another variety due to it being damaged or rusty will no longer be allowed. Isn’t that the whole ethos of the kit car industry to re use vehicles that would otherwise be scrapped or are you saying it only applies to those wa...

Re: BRA 289 on eBay

If it says manufacturer as AC and Cobra on the V5 log book, then there's possibly a whole load of problems for any future purchaser come May this year. DVLA are already clamping down heavily on incorrectly registered cars. Allegedly, there were going to be a large amount of redundancies at DVLA Swan...

Re: colour

Hi Pete, yes black does appeal, but to be honest I'm not totally convinced that it's the right decision to change it. The black would kill the shape of it, which might not be too bad an idea knowing how innacurate the body is, but the blue does seem to get noticed, it's certainly no shrinking violet...

Re: colour

I also posted this question on FB and it seems that most people would prefer the blue, some were quite vociferous about it, which I find odd. Here's a few more that I was inspired by,

colour

Toying with the idea of painting my Cobra, so I thought I'd throw it open to see what others think. I like the blue, but wonder if it's due a colour change. Paint it gloss black or keep it blue? https://i.imgur.com/iwhAh5O.jpg https://i.imgur.com/OtHJ2bE.jpg I'm being influenced by Leo Voayazides ca...

Something else that's been sneakily put through

Just been made aware of this, which would follow on from why the Government wanted to apply modern emissions testing to altermative vehicles. It could mean an increase in road tax for newly registered vehicles, including kit cars and alternative vehicles. Allegedly it would only apply if the emissio...
