You are a better man than I am... I plan on getting buried in the M6, even though my daughters have asked me to bequest it to them ;)

This lovely car has just passed its 31st MoT now that it is 34 years old. 5 more tests and it will be 40 years and no longer require testing according to current legislation, and thankfully it is in stunning condition inside and out and should be fine for another 20 years or more...

...but I most get it out and use it more. It had done less than 700 miles in the last year - all fabulously enjoyable but I really wish I found the time and excuses to use it more.

Edit to add; Of the 524 rhd M635 cars delivered to the UK there were still 338 still taxed in 1994, but in the last quarter of 2018 there were just 62 cars taxed and able to be used on the road...

For comparison, there were over 3000 635CSiA's taxed and on the road in 1994 and only just over 300 now...
2001 Alpina B10 V8 Touring (1 of 12 rhd)
1997 Alpina B12 5.7 L (1 of 2 rhd)
1995 Alpina B10 4.6 Touring (1 of 1 rhd)
1985 BMW M635CSi (1 of 524 rhd)
1982 BMW 635CSiA (1 of 100's left from the 1000's made and still valiantly fighting against a rusty grave)

Frightening statistics .
Well done on the MOT pass and have a good summer with it ( notice gender neutral description in case we get targeted ....). :lol:

Those are indeed shockingly low low numbers of these cars still on the road in the UK. Its a wonder they haven't become much more valuable there given the rarity. Makes me curious to find out how many are still alive in NA. Not sure if thats info that is even known.
