Well if DVLA are not going to accept VIN numbers for registering older cars then that only means one thing:

"They are not interested in having old cars on the road"

may be that is the future as CLEAN cars are being pushed more and more :(

I tend to agree Ali. I think we are probably the last generation that will properly enjoy 'old' cars. I know when I go, my kids arent interested and my car will end up either rotting away somewhere or gifted to a museum somewhere, never to breathe again. I believe the Govt know this and are just circling us, waiting for the hobby to die of natural causes. This bureaucracy and the fuel changes etc will all add up to nobody being able or bothered to import and run an old car. Next thing will be the US govt introduce a vintage scrappage scheme that pays out $5000 for old cars towards a new Prius Satsuma Leaf. Suddenly, those 60s and 70s lower end classics that keep the hobby going will all be scrapped and our hobby will be strangled.

Sounds a bit doom and gloom but our cars will become dinosaurs, it's just a case of when in my opinion

the covid issue is worse than you know.
As we aware there are different strains and it affects different race's of humans so we are told, what the scientists have not realised its also affects anyone in the civil service and business admin,
i believe, a strain attacks the human brain of these people eroding the cells that administer common sense and then turning them into cyclists :!: :!: :!:
IF ITS ON WHEELS, LOWER IT!!

When it was announced recently that the majority of people were being encouraged / forced to go back to work, didn't the Unions for the Civil Servants object, saying that it wasn't 'safe' yet? So i got the impression that most of the Civil Service was still on furlough, at home playing with their kids. (or other people's kids)
While the rest of us have to keep on working to keep the country on it's feet.
and breathe....

oops, off topic. Sorry.

Hi Seyhan and welcome to the club :thumbright:

How did you get on with application?

My Charger has been in the country a similar amount of time and I need to go through the same process before it's too late. I've been putting it off as I thought you needed to have an MOT. I do have all the import papers which might make it a bit simpler.

Good luck with the resto, this is by far the best place to come for advice. Some very knowledgeable & friendly peeps on here that will help you out.
Dino, you don't need an MOT, but as has been said before, if the car is complete and MOTable then it helps as a set of official eyes have already looked at it.

getting the car registered will take time due to Covid so worth getting the ball rolling with your V55/5 (downloadable from Gov UK) and send papers off, but copy EVERYTHING as you won't get any papers back. Make sure you have the NOVA as well before you start.
Thank you Matt. I should've done this a long time ago and listened to those who told me exactly that.
I will get on it tomorrow and let you know how I get on, hopefully Seyhan will get some joy too. (sorry for hijacking the post) :thumbright:
