Ten minutes to help keep classics on the road
The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs is asking classic car enthusiasts to take part in its national survey to establish the needs of the classic car movement.
The survey closes at the end of June and currently has 9000 responses – 3000 down on the previous survey five years ago. Spokesman Geoff Lancaster says: ‘It is important that as many enthusiasts as possible take part as the results will be used to take forward our political lobbying for the next five years. If you want to protect your rights to use your vehicle, get online and complete the survey. It’s everyone’s chance to make a difference.’ The survey takes as little as 10 minutes to complete.
‘Typically we’ve been having 100 responses per day,’ says Geoff, ‘but in the last fortnight this has dwindled almost to nothing. I cannot believe we are going to have fewer responses this time, when our new web-enabled survey allows a far wider number of people to get in touch.’
The FBHVC estimates there are one million vehicles over 30 years old on the UK’s roads and had hoped to capture a wider cross section of this group. Sam Skelton
