Surely its birthday is the build date? :)

Registration date is like a naming ceremony!

No RP number on my car, so registration date is the best I can do. If I ever find the build date, the valver will be like the Queen and have two birthdays. :D

Same age as me :D

Not that any excuse should ever be needed for cake, but go for it Mark

I would also lurve to know how the strikethru was done as square-brackets s and /s don't work.

Hi Mat and Caffiend, I just used the first generator that came up in google.

No ORGA inside the passenger front door on the A Pillar? That's a shame, it has lost its birth certificate.

Sometimes the ORGA is under the bonnet on the RHS next to the paint code as you face the vehicle. Certainly is for most MK 1s.
