Re: Moving to Perth, WA - should I take my Sprint ?
Aye! Take it..!
Aussie rules (?) say you can register any car as long as it passes the "pits" (kind of MOT). You need a km/h speedo.. that's all.
There's a whole cottage industry of places that supply, build, repair and fabricate... more than in the UK. For example, the speedo can be professionally modified so that it reads in Km/h (they replace the markings, so the odo' is still in miles... but who cares?) and if your dashboard splits from too much UV, almost anywhere can repair it, so it looks like new.
Once registered, your car keeps it's plate as long as you keep the rego' active (like road tax). No MOT or annual inspection required, which means there are some horrors out there.. but generally people are sensible and you don't see too many mobile wrecks.
So take your motor.. it's cheap and easy!
