Re: Interceptor Registration Numbers

I will check our records for you- I wont bother to re quote the chassis book. The trouble is, unless some one joined the club & filled out the forms relating to car/s owned etc, its a difficult trace otherwise. Even then, a member could elect to not disclose car info- and respect that we must. M...
