As friffies said, the procedure probably has to originate with the current 164 register keeper. When proof-reading my section (140s) I noted it hadn't been included in his 164 piece for the forthcoming magazine, so mailed him accordingly.
There is nothing else I can do, but when my own computer-menders retrieve the wiped records from my hard-drive will mail all owners I have ever dealt with. At least I can still send/receive at my library......

Join the owners club and you'll get all of the information in advance. You'll also be able to line up with other members rather than in the visitors parking.

27th June Hatton Country World Warwickshire. More details on the forum calendar.

I was a member for a quite a while after purchasing the 164, but found the 140/164 so poorly supported I let my membership lapse, I was kind of hoping this had changed.

Yes, but there are so few surviving 164s (about 2 dozen) in the UK the activity with them is bound to be minimal. However, from my records over 50% of them ARE owned by VOC members.
What I find more surprising is that there are nearly 10 times as many 140s surviving in one state or another (acc. to DVLA records) yet very few members. So my question - where do they get their parts if not through the VOC? Or are most of them just forgotten barn-lurkers lying dormant on the official records?

A lot of the stuff seems to be changing hands through Facebook groups, some Volvo specific, some general classic car group

It'd be nice to get mine ready for the BKV. Unrealistic though, I think. Maybe something later in the year...?

cheers
