A fantastic collection of spots and as others have said great attention to detail. Where do you get the owner info from as that isn't on the DVLA site?


Always look on the Shite side of life

 

1999 Vauxhall Zafira - shit or shite?

1978 Austin Maxi - proper shite or proper classic?

1972 Renault 6 - genuine garage find

He's probably got some sort of app that we don't have.
F*ck your Honda Civic, I've a horse outside,
F*ck your Subaru, I have a horse outside.
And f*ck your Mitsubishi, I've a horse outside,
If you're lookin' for a ride, I've got a horse outside

The info comes from several different places.

 

Number of owners - https://www.carsireland.ie/add.php (doesn't always give the info)

Date of last keeper change - https://www.surething.co.uk/ (and start a car insurance quote)

Exact date of registration (because DVLA only give the month and year) - https://cazana.com/uk/landing

I also find https://www.cartell.ie/ useful for getting the exact model and trim level combination, this also usually tells you if the car is automatic.

58. 1958 Austin A35 4 door

 

1958 Austin A35 4 door.JPG

Comes up as one owner, but as it's also been untaxed since 1993, I'm sceptical!  DVLA MOT history site also says it's an A40.
