Just like to know about any laws relating to photographing strangers.
In particular relating to a chance shot of a great antique car driving past and gone in seconds.
Join ePHOTOzine for free and remove these adverts.
You can photograph strangers and their cars vintage, or otherwise.
is there no requirement to ask permission of anyone?
I presume you are talking about the UK.
No. Not in public. (In the circumstances you describe)
ok, thanks a lot.
In fact, even on private property you don't need the permission of the subject
you might want to remove the reg number from said car.
Some UK guidance here.
You can take photos and even sell them if you wish.

You might indeed, or you might not - lets not mix up what might be desirable (although I don't know why number plates are removed in pictures) with the OP's question which was about the law.
Having photographed a large number of exotic car 'events' the split is normally 50-50 with the owners requesting number plates to be removed before the photos are put on the web.
Supercar owners are slightly less concerned, but owners of vehicles that are mass produced high performance, TVRs, BMW 'M', EVOs, Scoobys, Audi RS, Nissan Z, VXR, Cosworth etc aren't so keen as these cars are quite commonly 'rung'.
Look at the many surveilance camera.s everywhere you look, you can photograph anything and everything that these do, kids included.

Not quite, to operate CCTV in a public place you require a CCTV SIA license and there are allot of legislation for placement, your required to warn people with signs that the cameras are in action, And warn anyone who has a residence in the camera view.
Private land may well be different .
If a person you have photographed is put on the internet without their permission and they see it, they can tell you to take it off. Upto you if you do or not. If you don't and they got cash they gota take out a Civil case on you. Not many can afford that. Eticate is the word. Use discretion.
Some local councils are trying to stop photographers takeing people photos at their events. Stick together and they will FAIL.

On what grounds?
