angon, angon, a hardtop is a commercial as well. Mine says "light
commercial" for body type and "historic vehicle" for taxation class.
Been trying to find out if it has to have seatbelts fitted, and by 'eck, the
regulations are difficult to read.
I have decided it can have black number plates, so a nice set of pressed
ally black and silver have duly been orderd from this lot:
(no connection, but they seemed OK last time I used 'em, alhtough they did
seem to get confused by me wanting several rear plates in different sizes
and numbers. A few moments thought would have told them that I have several
trailers and more than 1 towing vehicle...)
dunno how they get round the rules, but they'll supply any plates, including
up to date ones. I suspect they're all "show plates" "not for road use", or
something. Some of them obviously are, which doesn't of course stop people.
