re-registering a vehicle

Well didn’t expect that... the manager of the HR department replied and said he is the editor for the Constructors Car Club so he might be able to help. He doesn’t know the car but said someone in the club might be interested in digging into its history.

Also when I got it, it was wet inside (metal floor is solid though) and when I started pulling out the carpet I found an old newspaper. Too brown and soggy to read but I left it to dry and I can now open the pages. It’s a local paper taking about Petone rent and Kelson stuff with some ads for ‘new’ Honda’s from 1983 then I found the date and it’s definitely a paper from that year. With the glass still being all through it, it seems like it hasn’t been touched for 35 years!

Cool! I think this is 1 of only 7 built by Lynchbuilt in 1977ish, they only built 5 with the crossflow ford option and 2 with Rotary's. One technically the 8th was a demonstrator built in Aus and shipped here then converted to Rotary as a demonstrator for the cars that would be built here with either rotary or ford power. That car is now in Wellington.

They made 7 turn key cars for already made orders before deciding it wouldn't be viable to build at their true cost, the accountants that got the rights to build them in NZ didn't get the figures right before taking orders.

So I guess that makes it 1 of 5? Cool.

Tony Lynch of Lynchbuilt replied to my email saying he did build the cars including this one based on the spec and he has offered his help which is awesome but for the paper work he suggested trying to find Stephen Fleming who was the owner of the rights in NZ. He took care of the paper work. Tony hasn't been in contact for many years.

Some googling and the only accountant Stephen Fleming I can find was in a Stuff article about some IRD trouble. His age and location in the article fits... and I've found a bunch of companies under his name all in the same area that the Stuff article says, but no email or phone contact.

I could send a letter...

If you have no papers you need to pick up a statutory declaration form from VTNZ or here

this thread is of interest to me

though the link in the OP is dead, is this still a requirement or is there a new source

I can also now confirm that this information was sufficient for VTNZ. They would prefer you used one of their special Stat Dec forms, but saw no reason they couldn't accept the generic one signed by a JP (yes, that's how they said it, "couldn't see why not" :?). They didn't specifically need anything but the Stat Dec and printout from NZTA about the black plates.

Also see the post I quoted in this post, in the original post. Lol.

I have just flicked away an email with all the associated garbage to "reuseofplates@nzta.govt.nz" for the Prince.

Fingers crossed.

Even if I get an answer back before @sheepers I would be happy.

Hey y'all. 

Hypothetically, is there any way to reverse a lapsed registration? I'm pretty sure the car in question fell off hold in May 2017 and the owner didn't realise until it went for a WOF the other day. 

I've heard there's a form you can fill out to reverse the cancelation process, is this true? 

 

Asking for a friend.

They can put it back in the system. 

 

I bought a car for parts (with rego on hold) and when it arrived I decided it was too good so a couple of weeks later I go to get it a wof and told its been dereg, wtf I thought, called up ltsa about it and the previous owner dereg it after I bought it so ltsa reinstated it with a few clicks while I was on the phone to them. If only it was that easy to rereg a car thats just fallen out of the system

It's possible under certain circumstances - a friend of mine took her Civic Shuttle in for a WOF only to find it had been de-registered for a few months. Turns out someone had deregistered there car somewhere else in the country but accidentally put her plate number down. Of course, no checks were done and they de-registered the wrong car. At first NZTA told her she had to eat the costs and hassle to re-register, and would lose the cool black plates. I think it was after calling up numerous times and crying over the phone that they eventually were convinced to reverse the process.

2+ years might be a stretch though.

What sort of price would I be looking at to put a car on a chassis jig to see if its straight?

If it is straight will I still need a repair cert to get it back on the road. Price?

I've bought a p6 and its flagged in the system for a hit in left front (or similar)but cant find any evidence of this or repairs?

When I looked into this, it's essentially an hourly rate, so will vary heaps between shops.
