And that's me spent. Funnily enough that's one of my photos that I took of it in Felixstowe in 2017.

Is it an original Bury car?
I don't remember seeing too many Citroens back in the day around Bury. Apart from the obvious Fords and UK cars, the odd "foreign" ones were usually Volvo and Pug/Talbot due to the local dealerships (Cecil and Larter / Tim Brinton )

Do we have any threads on old car dealerships? I love stuff like this. My Mum worked for Burrells (which became Cowies) in BSE. There are pictures of me wearing "launch" t-shirts for various Vauxhall shite in the early 80s somewhere (Mk1 Astra and Mk2 Cavalier).

Dutton are still going! Am sure I know someone related to, or worked for, them years ago. Also saw on their website that 2 of their cars crossed the channel in 2006.

Here is a cheap slightly broken Insignia, but unusually it's not a 2.0 CDTi with a blocked oil pickup, it's a 1.8 pez with a missing third gear.  Posting it mainly because I think it's rather nicely photographed for a cheap eBay snotter.

Wonder why the seller left the number plate from a VW Lupo in the windscreen?

Ford Puma £150 SE London

Seems far too cheap even needing welding, doubt it'll hang around if the ad is legit.

"Red Ford Puma for sale! Going at this price for quick sale. Selling because of new car. Not Taxed or MOT’d but been advised it needs some very minor welding work on the chassis in order to pass, have been told by an MOT mechanic that there is nothing else wrong with the vehicle. Good battery, new breaks. 

Smell dent on front passenger side. Would make someone a good first car, as it’s proved very reliable and still is. Anyone interested welcome to come take a look at her. 

Still a good looking car!!"

It's on a Cambridgeshire registration so possibly supplied by Chesterton Autocars in Cambridge?

That will need trailering away. It has an expired lpg system which means to ever be used on Italian roads a new lpg tank installed and tested,  min €400 plus change of ownership  admin fees.

I can not believe anyone in italy will buy that, and dealing with uk hmrc as i am at the moment, can not believe it will ever be worth taking back to uk either.  All this nonsense of 10% duty plus 20% vat even on old tat.

You just concentrate on getting that ct 110 up and running for us all to enjoy.

That is totally wrong importing from Europe is harder now but as it is over 30 years old it comes in as a historic vehicle with zero duty and 5 % vat. All you have to do once it gets here is ring HMRC they will ask you to email copies of the registration paperwork and a copy on the invoice. A couple of hours later they email back with a calculated figure for the vat and if you are happy with that just ring them up and pay over the phone. It took me about 3 hours to get the NOVA sorted on a Spanish import. Modern cars get hit with the 10% duty plus 20% vat. It really is simple the DVLA on the other had are a frigging nightmare at the moment randomly sending paperwork back once it has sat on their desk for too long.

Is it really that simple, i was online chatting to hmrc the other day, they guided me to their rules, it seems to say cars over 30 years old but must be of historic interest and original condition  whatever these mean. I got the impression they are trying to stop any old stuff coming in at 5% vat only.

The rules seem very ambiguous.  One man's rubbish is another man's treasure situation.

I also seem to remember reading that you can only be eligible for historic 5% vat you must apply prior to goods arriving in uk. Retrospective application is not acceptable. Or maybe i misunderstood that bit.

Panhard65, you applied after car was in uk ?  What car was it ?

I would love to understand this system well as i have seen so many italian cars i would love to get to uk and start a small business in italian metal " just not fiat 500s" would be it's name.
