Can I trace an old car if I know the reg number?

In the 1970s, my wife and I owned two Austin Mini. How do I ascertain whether or not they have been scrapped, still on the road or declared SORN? I can remember the registration numbers.

If you can remember the registration numbers, the first place to check would be here: www.gov.uk/check-mot-history. If there's no record of them, you could try contacting the clubs and see if the cars are known to them. Failing that, social media can often help in these situations. Good luck.
