Howard Bryan's TVR “white elephant”

Car of the Month:

Howard Bryan's TVR “white elephant”

‘Photos don’t do her justice – she is a car of such presence’. Naturally, Howard’s White Elephant causes a sensation on virtually every journey, and even in his home village, people stop on the pavement and mouth ‘what is it?’.

Classic Car of the Month:

VW Beetle Cabrio Owners Club GB

With summer firmly here, what better focus for our club of the month then a little sporty number, the Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet to be precise. You might not think VWs would make for natural cabriolets – but you only have to look at the VW Beetle Cabriolet to have those preconceptions dispelled and what better way to celebrate the soft top version of one of the most iconic cars ever built, than having the VW Beetle Cabrio Owners Club GB as our Club of the Month!

Yes, as many motorists know, the autobahn system – Germany's motorway network – has certain sections where no speed limit is in place. That, according to your driving personality (and the car you drive), probably either sounds quite exciting or somewhat frightening.

How to register a vehicle of historic interest

  • 16th August, 2022

As we've discussed elsewhere on this blog, once a car becomes 40 years old it becomes eligible for what's known as 'Vehicle of Historical Interest' status. In most, although (as we are about to see) not all cases, this means that the owner of the vehicle no longer has to pay vehicle tax on the car, or submit it for an annual MOT.
