Hi Mike The Road tax was 1955 when my dad purchased the car new. The car was passed onto me for my 17th birthday 1964 and 4/11 was what I paid per gallon for fuel. a loooooooooooong time ago

It was 4s 10 1/2d in 1960 so didn't go up so much at that time.

I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.

1955, April, is when my wife was born. Almost ten years before me! In spite of my grey (well white) fur, I'm feeling rather young today.......

Just renewed my road tax £170 for the year on an 02 75 diesel tourer. I can remember motoring in the 60s and passed my test in 1965. I had been driving for my job for 6 months by then and my employer didn't know. I am 66 now.
