Looks like he doesn't like paying his own eBay fees either - the BIN is the £150 sticker price plus the £28 selling fee... :roll:

Another plate-rape victim? :-(
I don't reckon plate-rape is that bad. After all, with a lot of this stuff it's the plate that keeps the car together.. A mate bought an Auntie Rover 105 from the local reg place a couple of years ago, not a bad old thing, but it'd been kept together to keep the plate 'alive'. Reg place got it and wangled it through an MOT (apparantly a legit one) and flogged it to my mate who kept it going for a year then sold it on.If it hadn't had a pinchable plate it would have gone in the great weighbridge race of 2008.

Those in the know can work out roughly when a plate transfer took place, the *SJ series was being used some years ago, so that Prefect won't have lost its original mark recently. It does annoy me how some MOT stations get away with dragging long-dead old junk out of barns, awarding them a hooky test certificate then flogging plate and blatantly unroadworthy vehicle separately - does VOSA ever latch onto such suspicious activity and check out such outfits?

There is that, but I'm sure a lot of folk get "caught out" thinking the plate is "original". It just seems a shame that the plate is often worth more than the car. :-(

Hey it's got "Initial D" wheels!

 

In my opinion this Trueno is probably one of the best preserved in this country.

Yeah that centre console looks really well-preserved.
Panel fit is second to none as well:

Does "restore" just mean it was sprayed white then? :roll:

Japanese naming - fliplights were Sprinter Trueno, fixed lights (like we had) were Corolla Levin.The panel fit thing is just weird, I've never seen one of them with bad panel fit - if that's the work of the bodyshop I wonder what the rest of the work was like?Also, why has he painted the lower headlights bit white? The flush grille looks a bit odd too, I'm no Trueno expert but I'm sure I've never seen that before.The whole thing doesn't bode well to me.

In theory - if it is declared broken up - then yes, in practice - DVLA have got so many tasty un-issued combinations yet to flog off that it's highly unlikely.

There is 1AN trapped somehow on a Morris Minor I suspect that MM will live for ever Still can't work out why it can't be transfer off been on the bay of E a couple of times

It was probably off the road before DVLA computerised the register, and whoever resuscitated the car had to go through the whole "prove what it is to get the original mark back" procedure, involving the owners club etc. This procedure still applies to barn finds that havent been taxed since before the mid-late 1970s and therefore are not on the Swansea computer. The original mark is then usually reinstated, but as "non-transferable".So somebody probably rebuilt a rotten Minor at enormous expense solely to cash in on the plate, thinking that it would sell for £££££ and more than cover the cost of restoration - only to have their plans thwarted :twisted::lol::lol:

That was sold by a mate of mine. If the chap thought that it was a genuine 99 Turbo then he's a bit of a plonker - the presence of a single Stromberg under the bonnet should have been a bit of a giveaway, as well as the lack of boost gauge or any of the other extras that 99 Turbos had. :roll:

Why does a plate become 'non-transferable'? My bm has had a private plate in the past, but is now back on its original plate (which is nothing special) but on the V5 states non-transferable??

You've answered your own question. If the DVLA issues another plate (ie to replace one that's been taken off for whatever reason) then it's deemed non-transferable.

My Daimler had a private plate for years (which was etched on the windows), then when it was sold got it's original plate back (I know cos the original plate is on the service record) is it common for plates to be 'returned'?

A Trader mate has a plate he puts on his cars that he runs for a while. They allways revert back to the original plate so I suppose its d.v.l.a policy to do so.
