Petition seems to be concerned with vintage cars, be nice if he included bikes as well.

Amazes me. 30/40 year old car is a piece of polluting (sometimes shiny) old crap basically yet it's tax free and mot free. Drive a 3 and a bit year old car  without an mot and or tax, which is usually much better state of road worthiness, and you get done.

 

I also wouldn't be surprised if bikes missed the exemption.

Running one car for 30 to 40 yrs is a lot less polluting than running a new car every 3-4 years for 30 to 40 yrs. :oldgit:

What's often overlooked on old bangers is the spares/ repair items including new panels and paint over the 40 years and the pollution of them being made. And the fact that old cars while the metal is usually thicker, they don't do well in shunts and of course the exhaust fumes, more fuel due to less efficient engines, etc. my current car returns 75mpg on motorway runs or in the 60s urban 50s short runs. That's keeping to the speed limits. Previous car did 40, 30, 25. Same engine size.

 

I can't afford a new car every few years I tend to get a 2/3 year old medium family car and run that. Usually till it's no longer economically viable to repair. That's been 10 years (each) for the last 3 cars. The failure has been highlighted on MOT, which of course won't happen for an old car as the owner is "trusted" to ensure the car is in a good state of repair. So when an old banger runs into you through brake, steering or some other failure due to poor maintenance, then their insurance won't pay so your stuck. It's a joke that's on the majority of people who run safe cars. Yes some owners of old bangers will take the time, expense and effort to maintain their vehicles just like some owners of old bikes do.

 

The one and only benefit of taxing a car was that it confirmed the car had a valid mot which at least means it was safe in the last few months. The tax on my car is £0 so I understand the desire for £0 road tax, I but I have to go through motions of the taxing process every year. Not mot, no tax.

 

I'll get my coat..........

I think anything 30+ years old ve-hickles will be doing a much smaller percentage of work than a modern Juan.

If you are relying on an MOT test to ensure a ve-hickle is "safe" then good luck ..you is gonna need it.

Most peeps owning a car/boike of this age do the work themsens..... uneconomic to repair after 10years use!!!! Jeebus! Not sure how long I have owned my youngest ve-hickle mayhaps 12 years, it's now 18years old and will do the same again easily.
