Re: Dating a registration number

Just went back to check the GGF started March 1940 but as it was war time lasted until 1945.

Re: Daimler EL24 website

The Lanchester LD10 page which has been done by Darren Watkinson is a fine example who is responsible for the LD10 web site.

well done to all who have made the effort.

Re: Dating a registration number

Re: Are garages open for repairs and MOTs?

So then every MOT will come all at once how will they cope then !! , this is turning into a mess that will last far beyond the date when normal life returns. This means those cars badly maintained will still be driving around, lets be honest some have no idea how safe their car is or care. Saying ga...
