This video in Edd China’s classic car health check video series looks at running checks on a classic car. He checks the exhaust fumes and explains that while pre-1960 classic cars are treated leniently, and classic cars first used before 1975 only require a visual check, vehicles used after 1 August 1975 will require their exhaust gases to be tested electronically.
