Do I have to SORN my classic?

I have owned a classic car which has been off the road since before SORN was introduced. I have never needed to declare a SORN on it in the past.

I understand there are are now new regulations, so do I now have to declare a SORN on my car? I appreciate that a SORN is nil cost (at the present!), but I'm just trying to avoid the hassle if I do not have to do it.

If it has been off road since before 1-2-2008 you do not have to make a SORN.

If you take a car out of long term storage and drive it home to be garaged without tax or SORN, what would happen if the police stopped you? The car is insured.
Does selling a car on SORN affect the price? I have a BMW Z3 Roadster with 12 months MoT and 108,500 miles. What do you think it could reasonably command?
My 1970 Jaguar 420G has been on a SORN for a number of years. The restoration is nearly complete. How do I get it registered and back on the road?
