    So what is the issue? There are plenty of Land Rovers on Club plates as well - all legal unless rego has been illegally obtained.

    This will not save money ever ...it will just push them into junk and recycle yards faster.
    I totally agree with you that no-one should be allowed to dictate what is worthy and what isn't.

    Pushing old cars off the road is a stated government objective. Is this push really from VicRoads or is it from a government minister pushing an agenda?

    The purpose of the club plates is to allow people to register veteran (< 1919) , vintage (1919 - 1931) or classic and historic cars (1930 > ) for road use but to not have to pay full rego for a vehicle that might only occasionally be on the road. It is NOT intended to be a discount rego scheme for old but otherwise valueless cars. But, as with disabled parking permits, there's always an element that does the wrong thing: I regularly see cars that are not veteran, vintage or classics - typically, old Commodores - being driven on club plates.

    The QLD rules look like what I think the Victorians thought that they were legislating for - actual historic vehicles used at club rallies etc.

    So they obtained their registration illegally - here in the ACT they will have their plates removed and prosecuted. If the Club has acted inappropriately in approving Historic/Mod registration they will also be sanctioned.

    Noting in the ACT Historic registration is a class of registration not a permit system.

    I have 6 vehicles on Club Rego. None of them driven daily, none of them used for commercial use.

    By changing the years from 25 to 30 - it wouldn’t change a thing for me.

    Some people will see the old commodores as classics & see series land rovers as bombs

    As long as the rules are being followed we should not discriminate on who thinks what is a classic.

    As an example the old Holdens i used to own are being bought and sold for far higher amounts than the old Landrover i used to own & in some cases more than the current

    Landrover i own.
    Cheers

    No matter what rules they put in place - someone will break them.
    There are many people that use their red plated vehicles as daily drivers and do not fill out their log books the problem is that it is not policed.
    There are lots of vehicles on red plates when they should be on modified plates - again it is not policed.
    My motorcycle is on red plates and during the summer I do ride it "daily" and fill in my log book each ride, I am yet to reach my first 45day limit in a year.

    The VN commode is a 'classic' i.e. very hard to kill and when they die they end up on their backs in someone's front yard like a dead rhino.

    If the Vic Gov is looking at financial losses on the scheme they should get some entity a bit more pragmatic to come up with a solution to the rorting problem, which seems to be more about logbook abuse.

    Something like real time GPS, which isn't exxy these days.

    Absolutely fantastic. I hope you wave and give them the thumbs up whenever you see them. I missed seeing the cars on the road that I grew up with. Why shouldn't one of my work collegues old VN commonbore allowed to be on a club permit. Its to old ... to much upkeep... to bloody thirsty to be used as a daily driver. You're basically saying middle aged people with young kids and no money shouldn't be allowed to keep there old toy cars right ? My answer to this is:



    There is no rorting .... you hardly ever see a club permit cars on the road during the winter months. The people in this thread insisting what should be allowed on the permit schemes.... are the exact reason car clubs are dying. No-one wants to deal with the club members that think they hsould be policing everything and everyone.

    Let the police do their job .... and people enjoy there cars. If they aren't you cuppa tea...... I really couldn't care less.
