15,000 peo­ple sign new pe­ti­tion in sin­gle week – find out how to you can join them

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Front Page -

Although we’ve not had 25-year rolling ex­emp­tion for clas­sics since 1997, there’s still a huge pub­lic de­mand for it, if the pop­u­lar­ity of a new on­line pe­ti­tion is any­thing to go by.

As we closed for press, more than 15,000 peo­ple had signed the pe­ti­tion, which is call­ing for the cur­rent 40-year rolling VED ex­emp­tion to be re­duced.

Although this would re­sult in a flurry of younger cars join­ing the clas­sic fray, not ev­ery­one within the scene agrees that this is a good idea.

Our straw poll of a num­ber of car clubs came away with a mixed re­sponse, and in­dus­try ex­perts were also in dis­agree­ment over the is­sue.
