if its registered on or before 31st dec 1979 it doesnt. 30 years rolling exemption is gone so 1980s cars will always need nct.

In limerick the gardai stop exempt cars if they are being used as every day cars. Vintage/Classic are only for leisure.

While where on the subject of classic cars. Am I right in saying not every 30yr old car is automatically classed as a classic/vintage as in it mightnt qualify for a cheaper vrt & road tax rate. Is it something got to do with up and coming modern classics i.e. in a fews yr time twincams might not enter the category

and someone was telling that for insurance you had to be part of an recognised "owners club" and limited to a few thousand miles a year as well :?

Everything registered before 31st dec 1979 is classed as vintage regardless of make and model and tax is a set rate regardless of engine size. once there 30 they will get the cheaper tax and vrt but all cars registered in 1980 onwards will need ncts, so in 5 years time a 1980 will still need ncts where the pre80s will never need it.

Twin cams will get the cheap tax when their old enough and the 30 years go from the year the car was first registered

Ya I was wondering this came in up conversation before about american muscle car how come we dont see that many. But someone had said just because there 30yrs old doesn't mean they will be classed as vintage.
