I have a Peugeot 205GR which I bought new in 1985 and when I saw a Ford Cortina with the number plate TTT 205X I thought it would be great for my 205. I bought the old banger and kept it until I could organise the transfer. Unfortunately I had gone through a couple of other bangers in the meantime. Consequently, about 5 years after, I decided to go ahead with the transfer only to find that the Cortina would not only have to be roadworthy, but also with an MOT, and insurance. I was horribly disappointed.
Why on earth would someone run a car into the ground, then wanting to keep the registration plate, be denied the possibility simply because the car has to be scrapped? It would seem that this law exists only for the filthy rich who could afford to change their car every 3 years and transfer the number plate whilst the car is still in their possession. This world is sad.
