John Simister: Could your classic be MOT‑exempt?

Is your historic vehicle interesting? To you it is, obviously. But what if the very thing that makes it interesting to you renders it officially dull?


John Simister

A deep concern for the planet's welfare ensures that the cars in John Simister's current assemblage of classics all have engines of under a litre, including a two-stroke Saab which causes the road behind to disappear from view after a cold start. This squares well with John's status as a Car of the Year jury member and a writer both on modern cars and old ones, the latter for Octane and Practical Classics. He has been a journalist since 1984, and lives in the Chiltern Hills with his wife Deborah and a dog called Sprocket.
