Re: Registration number archives

I consult Philip Riden's book frequently when helping out with re-registrations. I bought mine direct from Philip when the updated edition came out in 1998 as he was a DLOC member and drove a V8 Saloon. It contains a contemporary list of destroyed/surviving records, which I can look up for you if re...
