I've just been playing with this web site, very interesting stuff about the demise of various cars over the years.

Simply type in the make and model and it comes up with a graph of how many cars are left!

How Many Left?

does not include vehicles of the road before sorn was introduced (1998 ) or anything sorn before 2007.

also some makes come up as missing vehicles, because of low volume production. eg, Hillman superminx!!!!!!

Sorry but that site's notoriously inaccurate... quite often gets quoted on the 'net and the info' turns out to be wrong. Gives a rough idea but that's all. A lot of the data was collected in such a way that it can appear under different headings so, just for example, my Subaru truck could be included under BRAT, MV, 1800, Pick up or any combination of these... so try other headings...

Your better getting info off owners clubs, my Austin Dorset is only one of three in the UK not hot-rodded, there is only one standard on the road, and a few rods.

The site is based on DVLA data and there is an old adage in computer programming, "crap in, crap out". The DVLA data is known for being very poor with typo's in car names, hyphens used or missing, random model designations. I downloaded the data that this site is based on a few years ago and it was awful especially if cross referenced to body type data that they also held. You'd struggle to find out how many mk3 Escorts are registered so tracking down early stuff is as accurate as plucking a random number from a hat.
