Just read this with interest as I am based in Melbourne and have been researching kits including Tornado and others. I think it would be correct to say Australia is one of the most over regulated places on earth. As such I have just written to the Aust Govt and Vicroads to ask for a review of VSB14, the rules governing ICV and replica cars. I've had a 30plus years career in the auto industry as a CAD designer/engineer and restored many classic and sports car so I understand the need for good design and safety, but, I really don't get some of the onerous rules in VSB14 hence my letter writing. The main request for amendments is to allow a replica to be more period correct and use period correct powertrains and other details like lamps, switches, gauges, seats, mirrors etc........ and then treat them like a restored car of the same period - with most of the other ICV rules still applying save for things like steering column lock (really!!!) These cars form such a low volume of the vehicles on the roads that their contribution to pollution is negligible if at all measurable. My argument is that many older restored cars are put back into active road use with little on no emissions testing or pollution equipment (and many are pre ADR), just a normal roadworthy is needed. Why not a well built, period correct replica? I hope my letter writing lands with someone sympathetic to our cause and not just a career bureaucrat. We will see.
