also with a car made before 1984 i doesn't need hazard warning lights or numberplate lights or rear seatbelts and is exempt from emisions testing...
The first bit of that post is pretty shocking to be honest,but I'll leave it there.......

If we're talking about mainland UK MOT's,then the last part isn't completely true,but there are other dates and considerations to take into account.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
