“next slide please”

Such are the traditions of the printing industry that the first issue of any regular publication you read in the new year will generally have been put together right at the tail end of the previous one and so it is here. So although I’m writing this at the height of the pre-Christmas rush I’ll spare you yet another column looking back on the year nobody wanted and instead try to look forward to better times in the coming months. At which point I should point out that I am in no way qualified in any useful medical or epidemiological capacity but one thing I do feel qualified to comment on is the spirit of those who enjoy tinkering with old cars. And just as society in general has adapted to cope…

CLASSICS WORTH £18.3bn TO THE UK The value of the historic and classic motoring industry to the UK has been reiterated by new research commissioned by HERO-ERA, organiser of the epic Peking to Paris classic rally, which found the sector turns over £18.3bn a year and employs 113,000 people. The 60-page report, entitled ‘The Economic and Environmental Impact of the Historic and Classic Motor Industry in the UK’, covers the impact of the industry on the economy, jobs, skills, heritage and the environment. It was conducted on behalf of HERO-ERA by Cebr (Centre for Economics and Business Research Ltd) and the findings are separate to those released by the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs in November. The new report acknowledges and utilises some of the FBHVC’s information and the Federation’s chairman, David…

dvla halts black and silver plates

The law is being changed to prevent any vehicle constructed after January 1, 1980 from being able to display a black and silver number plate, despite being recorded in the DVLA’s historic tax class. Information from the DVLA reported by the FBHVC reveals the previous rule permitting any vehicle over 40 years old and registered in the historic tax class to display an old style black and silver number plate was an “unintended consequence” of the change in the definition of a historic vehicle for vehicle tax exemption purposes in 2015. Previously, all vehicles first registered after January 1, 1973 could only display reflective white and yellow number plates with black characters. Those vehicles with a construction date prior to January 1980 will continue to be able to legally display black and…

haynes ditches print for new manuals

The ubiquitous Haynes Workshop Manual has reached the end of an era, with the publisher confirming it will no longer physically print manuals for new cars in favour of digital content. However, you’ll still be able to buy existing manuals from its extensive back catalogue. Long a staple for the DIY mechanic, the first Haynes Workshop Manual was produced in 1966 and in all around 200 million manuals have been published. Established by John Haynes more than 50 years ago, Haynes Publishing was sold to French firm Infopro Digital earlier this year after its founder’s death in 2019. In a statement, the brand said it was currently in the process of creating an new automotive maintenance and repair product that “will cover around 95 per cent of car makes and models –…
