Hi, This probably isn't the right place for this, but I've looked on the internet and I'm unable to contact DVLA at the moment as i'm not a 'critical worker' My MK1 Polo has turned 40 this month, May 1980 it was first registered and I'm looking to declare it as 'historic' so it's tax and MOT exempt (it's not driven that much and it's in the garage) However I've got mixed advice on when you can actually declare this, i'm under the impression it's as soon as your car turns 40 years old but DVLA's site says it's any car built before January 1st 1980 which mine was but wasn't registered in the UK until May 1980. I was wonder if anyone else has gone through this process either with a Polo or another car. Thanks.

Hello everybody! I want to install front fog lights on my car and i was wondering if i could control it from my main light switch? Its a polo classic 6kv from late 98 left drive,. i've read somewhere that some polo 6n have wires already running from the main light switch into the engine bay, so im wondering if that goes for 6kv aswell and if so where are they located might i be just as lucky? And if anybody know how to install fogs from the lightswitch, given that i would have to run wires myself if they aren't already. Thanks in advance!
Car Throttle: Saving Poly - A Rusty Project Car From The Scrap Yard - Volkswagen Polo Coupe S MK2 This week, we’ve teamed up with Shell V-Power to save an owner’s classic Polo from the scrap yard! The Volkswagen Polo Mk2 is the second generation of the Volkswagen Polo supermini. It was produced from late 1981 until 1994.
Here goes! As of August 2016 I became the new keeper of this old girl. I'd been looking for one for around 4 months before this 1.05L popped up for sale. A friend and I made a 3 hour trip across the country to go and see it with the intention of buying it no matter what. So I did... even though first impressions were that it needs a lot of work! I'd wanted a new project to get stuck into anyway so it didn't put me off. The odd patch of rust here and there, grille smashed from someone reversing into it, dents here and there. Just generally needs a lot of love thrown its way. First mod, lose the window stickers. Being a fan of the smooth flowing JDM 70's and 80's cars, I pulled all the door bumper strips off, which make the car look untidy. Also removed the bumpers to see what it looked like. Also to gauge if there was any more rust I hadn't seen. I then went a step further and pulled all the rivets out of the arch trims and removed all of that too, again to see if there was any rust hiding on the arch lips. I definitely got away lucky as all the arches came up really nice. Its just a shame about the two front wings as the passenger side has a very bad repair from a previous dented which looks like it was kind of pulled straight and painted over with a rattle can and theres clear coat overspray all over the place. The drivers side has a crease right on the swage line where it meets the arch, drivers looks repairable, but a replacement passenger was ordered.
Hello you all! Like in many many automotive forums out there, I decided to look for those threads with photos and/or videos of "special cars" people pass by in their day-to-day. Those so called "spotters topics". Though, I've searched for that here and couldn't find anything like it. Saw some interesting topics about some specific models or makers, but nothing general. That's why I decided to create this thread! (I'm sorry if there is one already. If yes, please post the link to it.) I love photography and cars, and like many of us I'm sure, sometimes when I see a different ride I try to, at least, get a phone photo of it, just to share it with my friends. Well, the idea is pretty similar, but instead of sharing those with your friends only, why not share them online? Feel free to post your sights. And of course, let's talk about those sweet rides! I have a Facebook page dedicated to classic and pre-classic cars, and I always carry with me my humble 600D. Got some luck sometimes, and I would like to begin this discussion with two or three contributions. Here they go. BTW, with "special cars" I don't mean classics only, or exotics only, or tuners only, or... you know. I mean cars in general, somehow rare in our countries or with some special or funny feature.
