Whilst I always dread the MOT because it might cost me something, I'd rather know about it. Plus what is to then stop them passing legislation to say that you can only drive to shows or at weekends ect (not that many 59's are going to be in daily service).

Just because the car is old it shouldn't have to be checked every year to ensure that it is safe to be on the roads..? Madness

Seems ridiculous! I suppose owners of such cars will look after them but regardless to that, a novice with a spanner might not spot something a MOT man with 20 years might spot.
1 step forward, 2 steps back it seems.

take it this way, we have a 1953 series 1 landrover in pristine condition like allot of Pre 1960s cars
it costs £160 a year to insure. tax exempt and MOT exempt... apart from fuel thats all it cost to own it... £160 a year and its great fun and a joy to own
As said there is under 160,000 pre 1960s cars on the road, i also read elsewhere that the % of these involved in accidents due to mechanical failure is 0.01% of all collision in Britain
