hi everyone
my name is mick and live in spain 70 % of my time. I want to bring a ford pop over that has been modified from original. the insurance company here say I have to belong to a club to get a membership number to get cover. so does anyone know of club that would allow me to join even though I may only be able to take part in events and meets some of the time.
regards
mick:S

hi joncastle. no not yet, been told it could be a long job to get it changed. that's the next thing to try and get done. we don't know how lucky we all are in the uk with dvla and the ease of re-registering a car.

so are you going to take it back to uk. this ones not to much got a 2litre pinto engine auto box vitesse steering. new chassis. looks pretty standard on the outside. so not sure if it's good to go or not. Spanish authorities still living in the franco era, no imagination. it's a big problem!!

They measured the car and pointed out the width between the wheels was not right, the body ride height was not right disc breaks should not be fitted as they were not standard, when I pointed out they were safer than the originals they just shrugged their shoulders and when they opened the bonnet and saw the blower they terminated the inspection and told me I was wasting my time. I would be surprised if you get it passed but this is Spain and if you get a tester that cant be bothered to read the specification book you might get a pass. The test for registering is an extra stiff MOT/ITV

thanks for the information joncastle. I will have to consider all my option's. been talking to a guy called Andy in torrevieja who runs a few cars he's in touch with a german couple who own a garage. they think they may have a friendly examiner who would get these sort of cars through the test. if he manages to get one through I will message you.
all the best

. The car was professionally rebuilt by Wisbech engineering. all steel no fibreglass panels on this car. The rebuild included new chasis, 2.0 litre pinto engine auto box, independant suspension, escort rear axle. stainless steel exhaust full interior and paint, electrics etc. The vehicle was built a few years ago but has done very low mileage since its build. Only driven in fair weather and garaged.

Vehicle runs on unleaded petrol

The colour is Isuzu grey which seems to compliment the car.

The roof has been infilled new fire wall floor etc. the underside of the car has been stone chip protected and colour coded to the same colour as the top of the car.Vehicle is in full running condition and has been regularly serviced and maintained.

The vehicles interior has a conventional 4 seat capability with those sitting in the back still having relatively good leg room.The vehicle has a full interior and carpets.

Minilite replica wheels and good tyres come with the vehicle. pictures show the condition of the car.

An appreciation of the work undertaken on this car can only be seen by viewing the vehicle.

The vehicle has an imobiliser for insurance purposes.

regards
mick

It's my understanding that Spain won't even accept cars that have been correctly registered here by BIVA or SVA.

For sure the inspections are tightening all over re moving Historics around the EU.

The standard importation needs the car to be exactly as it left the factory correct size tyres with all axles having same make no towbar unless it has a fitting licence from a government approved fitter, bull bars need to be taken off and any non original badges and insignia must be removed. But saying that if you get a friendly examiner that happens to be skint anything is possible.
