dont waste it!

Restore a rolling 30 year-old exemption to VED, for classic vehicles
Responsible department: Her Majesty's Treasury

Re-introduce a 30 year rolling vehicle excise duty exemption scheme, for classic vehicles. For too long now the tax exemption of classic cars has been frozen, to only apply to those manufactured before 1973. History did not simply stop in 1972. These are not cars which are driven everyday but rather on sunny weekends, to attend enthusiast shows etc.. It is vitally important that we help to preserve this important part of British motoring history.

Not that it will work, but have done it. Not that any of my 30 year old or close to 30 year olds are sunny day vehicles, well except one, but saving over £100.00 a year would help.

Be nice to save 30 quid a year taxing the RS, but realistically, is there anything worth saving for posterity from the late 1970s/ early 1980s?

I could agree with you, but then I won't get the abusive foul-mouth PM sent to my home PC...

You're right of course, Mervin. Some nice Eyeties from that era.
