    Vic Red Plate Scheme

    Heard on the radio yesterday that Vicroads are losing too much money with club rego.

    So they are going to change the rules that car has to be 30 years old instead of 25
    Dave.

    I was asked " Is it ignorance or apathy?" I replied "I don't know and I don't care."

    Maybe they should actually regulate what gets club reg, a bog stock VN dunnydore or 626 shouldn't be eligible.

    That will bring them in line with QLD were as far as I know it has always been 30years . You better hope they don't adopt the Qld rules though.

    OK by me, my POS will be over that line in 2024 if I wanted to go down that path.

    I don't like the colour of the plates though.

    I saw a standard Mercedes G-Wagen SWB on club plates yesterday ..... right.

    I've seen plenty of cars that are obviously daily drivers being driven on club plates, it's a scam that's overdue for a tighten up.

    Not ever, not in a million years should anyone be allowed to dictate the types of cars that should be allowed on the scheme. The generation that grew up in the back seats of vn commodores and 626's should certainly be allowed access. Hows this for a different angle..... Why the hell should old 4wds be allowed on the club scheme ......


    No-one should be allowed to ever dictate to others what is considered "worthy".

    This will not save money ever ... a lot of 25year old cars are at the lowest possible ever value ..... basically worthless. This won't push them onto full registration, it will just push them into junk and recycle yards faster.

    When I was growing up 10 year old cars were pretty much rubbish and not worth much. Today a 25 year old car is often better than those 10 year olds.

    As an example, as a 20yo, I bought a 12 year old Jaguar. It needed paint and engine work but it it was cheap enough that I could afford it.

    And 25 years ago, who would have thought that a 25 year old POS 173 Holden Belmont would fetch any money ... let alone in the $10+ K region

    No reason that POS Dunnydores and 626's won't appreciate in such a manner in 25 years too.

    If I had a 'fleet' of old bangers myself(which would be nice to have again) ... they'd all be on club reg.

    The system needs to be brought into the 21st century if it's such a worry.

    It'd be interesting to see the figures as to how many vehicles are currently on Historic plates in Vic, vs how many are fully registered, and how those figures have changed over the years.
    Cheers,
    Arthur.
