    Say someone was to use a T4 to A-frame a beetle that has no engine, no mot, no tax (exempt but makes no difference I guess) using a proper A-frame, and a light board on the back of the bug with the tow vehicles reg number etc. and they got pulled over, what kinda trouble would they be in? No...
