no, they're allowed for cars made on or before 31/12/72.
the VED is free and insurance little over £100 (sorry graham
Damnit, you mean I could have had one on my '72 and upped my kewl factor too ?
Ho hum. Think that I've had enough of VWs now. If I were to go for an out of the ordinary, but non-exotic, car it's probably be a triumph GT6, or a ford capri
. My mum had the first ford capri
that was sold in the west midlands, before they acquired a certain image, and I've always liked them (apart from the ones with the silly body kits). Indeed, I had a MkII 2lt ford capri
ages ago, it wasn't particularly fast and didn't have particularly good handling, but I really loved it - it was just so comfortable to drive and so easy to work on, not to mention cheap to run! Bought it for £250 and sold it for £300 several years later
Always fancied a 2CV too, but they appear to be silly money (like VWs).
