    This caught my eye today:
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5329921/Man-sues-DVLA-150-000-sports-car-logbook-change.html
    I can't see that he has a case, he claims to be an expert so he should know more about the car than the DVLA. What I want to know is what kicked off the DVLA investigation into the vehicle and its historic tax status? Was it the high value (seems unlikely as the tax loss is the same regardless of value), a complaint or are they finally cracking down on fake historic vehicles. Every few weeks there's a dodgy Series on e-bay but in the past when I've reported these to the DVLA they direct me back to e-bay and say its miss-selling not tax fraud, looks like they've changed their tune.

    Sounds like he got burnt for not doing his homework. what is that saying....Oh yeah caveat emptor.

    :oops::oops::oops::oops:

    Right I am off to buy a series on ebay , so I can sue the DVLA for allowing it to be called so when it had a 90 chassis.

    Cheers
