DVLA’s missing marques
One very much hopes that no one is planning to supply the DVLA with the 42 missing marques you list in the 22 June issue, under the delusion that this would make their list complete.
Modern-day journalists would do well to read a bit more widely, the better to have an idea of the thousands of makes extant since the birth of the industry and which are no longer with us. Don’t forget that the DVLA is responsible for all powered vehicles, not just cars, and its list is bound to be woefully short. The only viable way of updating its system would be to include any make which owners put to them, provided that it can be verified as genuine by an independent historical source, and demand a maker’s identification plate as proof of such.
