This man is looking for a 70s logbook. I assume it's to frame and hang on his wall. Googling his number gives his name.

I completely understand that selling rung cars is wrong and dont agree with it.

However im more open to the idea of using a 70s reg solely for tax purposes. Its a absoloute joke that it costs 340 yoyo to tax a mini.

AFAIK the vintage road tax currently kicks in at 30 years, so that's 1987. NCT required from 1980 on.

Still nearly 15 years of mini production falling into the regular tax system at the moment.
Nothing you can do about it but it is crazy money to tax a car that may only get a few hundred miles a year.

How you run your own car is a matter of risk you choose to take with the authorities, however selling such a car to an innocent third party is what we like to highlight here.

Ad heading says 1966 and the first line of discription says 1996.

Aparently there's a build thread on here about it?

It may just be a Donedeal typo?
