Someone as impecunious as you say is hardly going to be able to buy a new MX5,
let alone a Discovery.  Of course it will distort the market, but you aren't
going to get the Government to say "that's a classic, we aren't going to let
you part exchange that"!  For a start what defines a classic?

Never mind that a Disco produces more pollution on the road than a Moggie
Minor (only CO2, not CO or hydrocarbons), 60% of a cars lifetime pollution is
produced in it manufacture, and for battery hybrids it's far worse.  You would
do far more for the planet buying a 3 or 4 year-old car than a new one of any

old for it, he's fed up with the maintenance and repair and wants to get an
MX5 instead ...
