If he is doing that, wouldn't it be fun if he has an accident in it? What if it is a fatality? All the money in the world wouldn't get you out of that trouble in this country. Different if it was say in India.

Rule of thumb, it isn't illegal unless you get caught.  :thumbsup:
You can say I'm wrong, but my garage doesn't agree with that statement!!!

Yes he would be but i actually thought about this  :scratchchin: Just say you had a LHD car which was unregisterable which was under 25 years e.g the F40. I think that guy registered the plate to a Red F430 or maybe an old red Ferrari over 25 years(since you wouldnt want to look sus) so when cops check the plate in their system it would come up as a red ferrari and drive off. I dont think they would know about models such as F40, F430 etc. So i think they would do a quick check and drive off maybe thats what this guy is doing  :scratchchin: and it looks like he is getting away with it!

Yea as much as i could imagine owning an F50 would be very nice just even looking at it everyday but knowing you cant drive it...that just ruins it.  Haha when did you sell it? I reckon you should've got a dealers liscense and put on trade plates!

You thought wrong, I know the owner and had a couple of conversations with him about it. The plate isn't registered to ANY car, let alone a Ferrari.

Do you realise the Cops have number plate recognition technology these days? Scans the plate, checks the rego database and bang, you're done.
I have personally seen it happen several times now. It also checks the license details of the driver registered to that plate. If you're license has been pulled, bang you're done. Get the picture now ? NOT at all smart to go this route in 2010 and beyond.

F50 went earlier this year. Got sick of the expense of taking it to the track with my 360 N-GT, especially when I would do bugger all laps in it because the race car was more fun to drive in that environment. After 5 years of it I had done everything you could legally do with the F50, there was nothing more to learn and it was time to move on.

You're also wrong on the dealers license and trade plate use as it's still illegal. Trade plates can only be used on vehicles that can be Oz registered and are fully ADR legal for the appropriate age of the vehicle. Think of it this way, could you bang some trade plates on your full blown F1 car and drive it on the road legally? Of course not, and in the eyes of the law the F50 is the same as the F1 car with respect to trade plate law.

Just because you see people doing it doesn't make it in ANY way legal. This has all been confirmed by specialist lawyers. TRUST ME you can't do it, end of story. It isn't a problem till it's a problem, then it can be a VERY big problem if the cards fall the wrong way.

Wait so if its not registered to any car how did he get the plate... :confused:
oh yes i did hear that before the new technology.
I mean when you have a car like that for 5 years and tried so hard to do everything in a legal way and not get any results it would be pointless, unless you take it to the track all the time.
Yes thats true but then the question comes to my mind why on earth is this guy doing it with an F40? why? its totally stupid isnt it?

Different laws. In every state but NSW, you can actually own the plate and not have to leave it in storage at the motor registry.

Yes thats right. I know that you can keep the plate at home and not keep it at the motor registry.
