Registration Woes

Hi all,
My MR2 is about due for registration again and I thought I'd ask you all a question I've had for a few years now. The car is registered as 1999 model as that's when it was imported/complied, however the build number indicates that it is a 1990 model.
So my question for you is, is it possible to have it re-registered under its original build date in NSW?
I'd like to put it on historic registration as I don't daily drive it and it seems a bit pointless paying for full registration on its limited use.

    To be eligible for the HVS:
    • your vehicle must be at least 30 years of age or older from the year it was manufactured. The vehicle must not be modified.
    I had heard from a friend there was talk about modified vehicles being allowed in the near future.

    I'm fairly sure there is a "Modified Historic" as well.
    NSW MR2 club is not part of the scheme, but several of our members are part of Toymods who are part of the scheme.
