Everything from Standard Tens to Austin Princess Vanden Plas Sports Saloons are on offer, and you too could be driving an MoT exempt classic from as little as £1000, as enthusiasts look to cash in on the new rules.
However, be warned, CCW has also noticed a number of adverts that are implying that the MoT exemption is an opportunity to drive unroadworthy classics on the road. "Mot'd until 2013 and will never need another one," has emerged as one popular tagline, but don't be fooled by unscrupulous sellers looking to cash in on the new rules. The MoT might have gone, for pre-1960 cars, but it's still the legal requirement of the owner to make sure cars in use are kept in a roadworthy condition. Failure to do so will leave the owner/driver liable for prosecution.
