As someone who just taxes when they want to use it, the first payment at the end of the month isn't taken until the start of next month. I think it's £90 odd. Anyway, last time I used it, I ended up re-sorn'ing before the first payment was taken, so it didn't cost me anything.Think I'll pull mine out later and stick my trade plates on it Dean :smokin:
I'm not paying £50 tax just for 3 hours :chuckle:
I'm near you, if I'm home I'll be up for that.Hadn’t driven mine in a month but that was due to me being out of the country.
Got back last week and the Datsun has its first outing today. Will give it a clean later this week but have always taxed all my cars all year round.
Going to try to organise a get together towards the end of the month. Will see who the hardcore guys are as it will happen rain, snow or sunshine.
Oh, I know this..bit tongue in cheek comment. Take advice from your servicer about the state of corrosion underneath and stay on top of it is all you can do.Word is they rust a damn sight worse than just a few bolts.
Lol. There was a guy at Litchfields when I was buying mine who pretty much ignored their advice on the state of the underside of his car, service after service. Iain was just shaking his head telling me the story, 'easy' fix became a very expensive one.
Done the same years ago with a Fella who'd personally imported a grey 1995 Mitsubishi FTO which sadly was scrapped long before it should have been. He ignored all advice and laughed at Our dire rust warnings because "It drove so bloody well, Nothing too serious could go wrong". Japanese reliability eh?Lol.

I'm the only person where I live to put their car in their garage, but everyone else does (most of the the time) put their car on their drive.but none of my neighbours seem to be able to use their garage or driveway and prefer to park astride the road/pavement clogging up the entire bluddy street!
+1 totally agree, and feel the same with mine! :smokin:Because i can still enjoy the car and that's what I bought it for.
For me, it's way too much money to spend on something that lives under a cover for 4 months of the year. I can't justify that.
Some of my most memorable drives have been in the winter, out early on a frosty morning and driving into a beautiful sunrise. Bloody marvelous.
I don't have to be driving flat out to enjoy it, I just like driving it whenever I can ***x1f642;
If id had my car a while i dont think it would bother me so much but only buying it in Sept means id only driven it a handful of times.I’ve taken mine off the road since December (like everyone, because of the salt etc).
Not driving for such a long time kills me. My only satisfaction is too visit it in the garage and just sit in it for 5 mins or so. It’s all very well undersealed etc but still don’t want risk my pride and joy. The pain though is torture
