Can I sell a Nissan Serena on Irish plates?

I have a 1999 Nissan Serena FX diesel on Republic of Ireland number plates sitting on my drive. I would like to know what is the best option to get some of my money back on it. The problem is that I purchased it off a relative and the log book is still in their name, which naturally I can't sell with this being the case.

The car already owes me a quite a bit, having paid £500 to get it over here. I assume that I would not get a lot for scrap - any ideas on selling for spares?

As you say, the first thing you have to do is register it to yourself in the UK. This is the Government site for registering an import: www.gov.uk/importing-vehicles-into-the-uk/register.../ T
