Am I right in thinking that you can legally pilot a classic HGV on a car licence providing you are not carrying any load :?:

That ERF seems WAY too cheap to me :shock: - it's the perfect size for classic shows and that, and it costs many thousands to restore one from rough condition to what it looks like in the photos - I mean for ***'s sake one of those is probably worth £600 as scrap! I spy Scam, or they meant £12,000.

How does the MOT exempt thing work then? Surely it needs some form of testing - or is teh way to a truly shitetastic existance for us all to drive ex-MOD crap?

What are they like to drive? I'm fascinated by the small-engined versions of large family cars like the Sierra and Montego 1.3, 405, BX and Cavalier 1.4, etc.

Dunno about older motors, but I've driven a 1.4 Skoda Octavia and it's hard work. You spend the whole time changing gear surprisingly enough.

My current daily driver's a mk2 1300 Cav, so I'd imagine it'll be not much different. You do have to stir the box, but it'll comfortably cruise in excess of 68mph with a full load and still return 40 mpg.It could do with a wee bit more power to help getting past caravans and general arseholes, but it will still get past them.

Modern cars are tuned to maximise the headline figures- 0-60, peak bhp, top speed, constant-speed mpg etc. This isn't always conducive to drivability in the real world. A lot of new cars are gutless and putting a small engine only makes them more so.The older a model is the more likely the small engined variant is to be drivable.
