Petition Make it illegal for Historic Vehicles to be processed through scrappage schemes.
Make it illegal for manufacturers to process vehicles which have Historic Vehicle on their V5 documents though any scrappage scheme. A simple way to avoid losing rare road heritage is to make all vehicles with Historic Vehicle on their V5 document, legally exempt from scrappage.
A decision taken by Ford UK to scrap a rare Standard 10 was recently highlighted and reversed. The mint condition classic had been sent for scrap by Ford after it was traded in for a Transit. There are many other examples of historic vehicles being sent for a similar fate. They should have legal protection.
