What will Binky be registered as?
Permalink  
 


The Mini donor car looks to be circa 1980 (I anticipate a VERY precise correction from Mini afficianados here.....).  I think the Celica GT4 donor car for the drive train and suspension is the ST185 which was made from 1989-93. 

Would Nik 'n Rick be using the VIN plate off the Mini donor car, or will it simply be a one-off special which happens to loo a bit like a classic BL Mini, and getting a Q registration? 

 

Of course, this assumes that the car will actually get finished............  which may not be a safe assumption

After watching Ep 16 of the Murray Escort and them talking about IVA test I wonder how Binky will fair?

He had probably spoken before then...... but not on the video

So next year, Binky be 30 years old, and therefore tax exempt?

More like 40.

It won't be MoT exempt as it is "substantially altered". I can't see Binky failing an MoT.

EDIT: The donor Celica is a 5th Gen Celica GT4 so it is indeed the ST185. My own Celica GT is the ST182.
