Surely as long as all the modifications are listed on the insurance and matches the vin plate the car is classed as insured. It may not be correctly registered, but the worst that should happen is you’d lose the V5. Unless they wanted to spend the time/effort in taking you to court to escalate it.
And on the 6th day Man created god.
someone told me a few weeks ago its an offence to damage someone elses property
at least dick turpin had the decency to wear a mask!
of the uninsured ones that are crushed they were the ones that were abandoned at the roadside, most that are driven are reclaimed when the owner comes back with insurance, a small % don't bother as the cars are scrap value anyway, easier to buy another scrapper and run it without insurance as its never registered in the new owners name and the chances of being pulled are still slim and getting slimmer .. ANPR is only any good if stuff it registered to the driver you can have as many hits as you like if the fines are going to a non existent address....
the figures from the feds are bull**** .. that would assume they got at least £150 per scrap car and £330 for each one sold ,,, At that price it would be better to wait till there was an auction and buy your car back LOL..
Getting back to the OP, I don't think that ANPR cameras can recognise the make and model of a vehicle YET.
I would imagine any real coppers who ran the plate and found it came back as a Capri would be more likely to assume it had been nicked and rung.
