OK, this is controversial, but should we be bothered about the future of this hobby? We know the car is doomed, electric sucks, so why not just enjoy it and live for the now?
If caught ( with a vehicle incorrectly / illegally registered ) since 1998 it would would have to undergo a test . That's caught NOW owning a vehicle so you could be 17 or even younger . Age of owner builder has nothing to do with the vehicles legality .if you got caught sinse about 1985 ish you would need to go through a test.
thats nearly 40 years ago.
in 2030 most average age rodders in the uk will be dead,or having someone else wipe their arses for them.

Further detailed tests or form filling/box ticking exercises could take a lot of cars off the road, as the modifications to meet regulations might be impossible or too expensive.
DVSA are now introducing ANPR cameras to new centres and others will follow as they are updated. Not aimed at us ...I think but...Heard an thing on the radio today, competition to win an electric MINI. Interesting thing was it was described as zero LOCAL emissions, first time I'd heard the phrase... maybe peoples' eyes will be opened?
Oh, and about 13 years ago I sold my 100E as someone on a forum I was on at the time told me If I took it for an MOT I would be dobbed in because it was modified...
..... plus the charging bills, plus staying in a B&B overnight if he wants to go more than 150miles, ( they are all scared to death of testing its REAL range, too hit and miss) plus he still has to have fossil fuel avail or he cant use it, Muppet.You have to laugh...bloke at work was saying today that he's loving not filling up with petrol any more as his brand new electric car costs nothing to run...that's the electric car he's paying £320 a month to lease...
