Car would’ve been 49 years old when first UK registered, so zero tax straight away?

I’ve always wondered about old Italian tin, is there some law that says they all have to be fitted with those stupid unreadable front plates once they’re past a certain age? I mean obviously they were like that in their home country back in the day but I don’t get why it seems they all have to be like that over here as well.

I lived in Brockley about 15 years back and am pretty sure I recognise this car. There used to be a lot of interesting old tin rusting away in the streets / front gardens of the Conservation Area back then.

It's not had a keeper change for 20 years, so it's quite likely to be the same car.

Registered September 1998 - surely that should be on the S prefix then, not R?

Well spotted!  Yes, S reg started 1st August 1998.  It is recorded as imported, so I wonder if it had been registered elsewhere within the R reg period and that original registration date determined the UK plate.  All I know is that it's recorded as manufactured in 1998.  AFAIK these were never sold in the UK so it has to be some sort of personal import.

      Well I cba looking for my old spotterage thread, so have a new one, warning, contains porn. 
       
      First up, one from August, at Godmanchester, a nice mk1 Rangey in forum beige.
       

       

       
      Now a pair of Rover 600's, one in Huntingdon, looking tidy, and another taken today in Needham Market with a severe case of lacquer peel
       

       

       
      Tesco Martlebum spots now, nice tidy old Merc 420SE with misery spec wheeltrims, and an AC/DC branded Datsun SX
       

       

       

       
      Now a Buick spotted just round the corner from me last week
       

       

       
      Last, but not least for this post, this funky Peugeot 604, it was mint, plastic seat covers on it too, not sen one in donkeys years. Taken in the car park of a toy fair in Needham Market. PHWOAR is all I can say!
