    G'day Isis,

    I am about to go through the process of getting my S1 205 on Club Permit, as it is 25 in July. I am with Kyneton Car Club, as I will be using this car for autocross racing.

    Pretty simple really, if the car is capable of a roadworthy, then it will get a permit no problem. If it is not roadworthy, then it has to be considered 'safe' by the club, and can then be put on a permit.

    This of course, depends on the clubs policy of club permit vehicles.

    Best of luck.
    Michael

    Thanks Michael, my car has made it through a safety test so it looks downhill from here. Cheap motoring from hereon it seems. Cheers

    done and dusted, so I am all plated up. $66 total for 45 days driving, or $120 for 90 days.
    A friend commented that the 205 seems far too modern looking for classic plates.

    I've put the CX on club rego. It's the best bloody thing since sliced bread this scheme. A tip I was given was to make sure you apply for a 45day permit, not 90, otherwise your renewel will be for the full 90days.

    I've found (like just about every I've talked too). 45days will cover the usage of the car. I'm not even upto 25days yet and it's been on club rego for about 5months!

    If it's not a daily used car, I can't recommend this scheme highly enough. If shannons is your insurer, you insurance will drop too.

    $66 bucks a year for 45days, no stamp duty, no transfer fees, no plate fees, no nothing. It's brilliant!

    My Series II plastic bumpered CX looks to modern too .... But hey, plastic bumpered XF fowlcan can probably get club rego now, so it's no big bother for me

    Agree Shane, love this system.
    I have my 205 back on the road, getting checked at our meet in June, and I will go to Vicroads July 2, to get the plates.

    I agree with the 90 days thing, I got 90 days on my Nissan Pintara (I use it for Autocross racing, don't laugh), and have only used 30 days for the year. Can always get another 45 days if you use the first.

    And regarding insurance, there is an arm of RACV, which deals in classic and vintage car insurance. For the Pintara mentioned above, full comprehensive insurance, and roadside care came out to $70 bucks.

    Cheap cheap motoring, and no excuses not to see more 205's out on the road.
    Michael

    Yeah, I went for the 45 days. My insurance with Lumleys was halved by this scheme, plus I stipulated a locked garage.
    On that point, my car is a $1000 machine, with about $30,000 cost in modifications (to replace at least, not actually spent (engine internals at least 15 alone I am told) so I fully insured it for $15,000 value. It occurs to me that if I have an accident, I could always (if I am alive!) buy back the wreck, take off the bits and transfer to a new donor car. I guess the 15K smooths this process, considering labour costs to rebuild (stuff I cant do myself). I could insure it for say $7K and halve my insurance and still have enough to get a lot of work done. thoughts? Its hard to logically reason with an illogical car.

    Ps, Shane I realise you would be able to do everything yourself, but not me.

    Hmm, not sure your system is quite as good as the VIC permit deal we now have, but look at the website.

    I have the old CX insured for $15,000. The amount your insured for appears to make barely any difference to the premium. The reason you want it insured for as much as possible (especially if you have sentimental attachment to a low valued vehicle) is to ensure they don't write it off given a low speed prang. A set of headlights, indicators, bumper, nose cone, bonnet, radiator/condenser/etc.... you know a really low speed prang could **easily** writeoff you pride and joy if your not insured for enough. Even if it's an easy and safe repair.

    If my car needed $15,000 of repair done ..... I don't want it back on the roads, I wouldn't feel safe with my family onboard after such an extensive accident. I would buy it back (as shannons always offer the wreck back) and use it as a parts car ..... For the identical replacement that would replace it.

    Thanks for that, good thoughts about the write off situation.

    No, this is the Vic Roads system.
    I think the NSW one still requires that you are using the car for a club activity.
    Also They seem to be very restrictive re modifications.
