Car Facts Disc
Share your car's personalised trivia
Bring your passion to life
Share detailed information with fellow car enthusiasts on your pride and joy, including its history, modifications, restoration journey, photos or videos in a really simple and fun way using our Car Facts Disc.
Whether you race, rally, participate in events as an exhibitor or simply have your car parked on a high street, there will always be enthusiasts that find themselves stood by your car wishing they could know its background - and that is the exact reason behind our Car Facts Disc - to let your car tell its own story.
“After years of attending owners’ club events and classic car shows, where information about individual cars was patchy at best, and often completely absent, I realised that learning about vehicles was virtually impossible unless you were lucky enough to meet the owner. With Car Facts Disc we have created a really simple method for enthusiasts, like me, to document and share our car facts, and trivia, in a way that allows anyone with a smartphone, standing by the car, to view it quickly and easily” - Classic Car “Nut” and Founder of Car Facts Disc Paul Tombs
Using the Car Facts Disc
Car Facts Disc allow you to quickly and easily upload details about your vehicle, revealing it’s modifications or restoration work, adventures on the race track or road, along with images, videos and even hire rates plus availability for film or wedding use. As an option, you can also show if your car is for sale.
It resembles the look of the UK’s old paper car tax disc and once displayed on your windscreen, it allows any passer-by, event visitor, or fellow enthusiast to use their smartphone camera and scan its unique code to view your car’s personalised trivia.

Classic Car Birthdays
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the metro launch, and an online exhibition has been created by the British Motor Museum to celebrate a car that divided opinion.
In the spirit of celebrating the ordinary as being extraordinary we have reached out to and asked our customer Phil, to walk us down the memory lane of his Austin Rover Metro.
