Private plate?probably not? the mazda 121 is the same as a ford fiesta mk4.Not sure what the validation bit means but i do no that "Q" is all about a car thats contains bits from many cars, ie/the chassis has been replaced. A lad at my work twisted the chassis of his astra in a small accident panel wise so he just got a chassis and put all his panels/gubbins into it.that was then a Q car

As for the RAC not bein able to help u,what a biff he is then

It may be a private plate as mentiond, you can only have a private plate that makes the car look older than it is not the other way around i.e A Sreg car could have A15 ABC but not X69 ABC.

As said if its a Q plate it has had parts off another car. There are ways around getting a Q plate, if your car has a certain % of original parts from each area of the car such as suspenion, engine etc then you can retain the Identity.

If you were to write your Mk2 Mexico Escort off and wanted to rebuild it, this is how you keep it as a Mexico model so it doesnt loose its value or characteristics.

If your unsure about how old your car his try a search on Parkers or the auto-trader. Mazda bought the rights and the machinery to produce the 121 based on the Fiesta Mk4, so the chances are they started to make them AFTER Ford was done with them so your talking about 1997/98

To me that indicates its got a privateplate, that and the fact that in 93/93 (Lreg) Ford hadnt created the Mk4, so Madza couldnt have bought the rights yet!

Sorry, just a quick hijack, but how come i haven't had to get a Q plate on the Samurai? Only things from the original vehicle are chassis frame, dashboard, and about 3/4 of the bodywork!

From what I know its only a new thing they have brought out, its so you could keep the original identity - Usualy when you get a new shell

Maybe yours Jimbo was before the rule? I dont know
