Reproduction tax discs & mugs

What do you buy for the petrolhead in your life? Surely not another pair of socks!

Andrew & Judith at Mirabelle Classic Cars have recently produced an alternative, in the form of customized road tax discs and ceramic mugs. Initially, dates from 1948 to 1978 are being offered, but there are plans to extend the range in the future.

The idea started with the blank reproduction tax discs (priced at £2.99 inc. p&p*) – for the classic car owner to insert his/her own vehicle details.

This quickly extended to a more “jokey” type of customisation, aimed not only at the classic car nut, but to people generally, for birthdays, anniversaries etc.

Dates from 1948 to 1960 are only available as annual discs, but from 1961 to 1978 are available by the month (some examples are shown as thumbnails below).

A recent development means that these discs can now be reproduced on an 11oz ceramic mug (priced at £9.99 plus £3.75 p&p*), including customisation if required. The image is shown on both sides of the mug.

*p&p prices shown apply to UK orders only. Please ask for a quote for international purchases, or for more than one item.
