My Police land rover came from Lundun and its now right at the other end of England in Cumbria. These old vehicles can still travel around a lot.

In my experience older cars tend to travel around more.... whatever the car there's bound to be some kind of forum, club or bunch of old codgers enthusing over them. So when one comes up for sale, you travel further and further to get it.My Scirocco Storm was B44 KPN - a Brighton registration. The history of the car starts with the third owner I think, who was in Newcastle. That's a fair trek! From there it went to Leeds, where I bought it and took it to Mansfield, and then it was bought by a guy in London I think. Working its way back south....My Polo G40 was a London registration to begin with, then went to Lincoln where it stayed for three owners. I bought it, and then the guy who got it off me shipped it to Ireland.

Arguably more so in Scotland, where the salt on winter roads rots indigenous cars much faster than down south. It is a rarity to see anything over 20 years old with a "native" reg plate, unless you do as my mate did and transfer the vehicle's original mark to his modern car - hey presto, free "local" registration on the classic.

That Sunny Maxima does look very clean. Brave of them to be mixing it with the HGV's in the slow lane though.

Our old Mazda 323 saloon came new from Bournemouth, came to |Lincolnshire when my dad moved here then we had it off him and later sold it to a friend of a friend in Glasgow. I this kind of thing happens a lot as many of the cars i have ever found have been nowhere near their original place of registration.

I have certainly contributed to that sort of thing, none of my cars are anywhere near locally-registered.

My Camry falls foul of the 'local registration' thing, but I suspect you'd have a hard time finding one like that as - like most big Japanese cars - they mostly seem to have been pre-registered by Toyota GB. See any Nissan QX and they'll nearly always be the same.Who knows where the Laurel has been, certainly not now very local to when it was first registered in Japan...I do like it when a car doesn't stray far from its original patch though. The Carina E has a proper Norfolk 'NG' registration, and being a on a P it's new enough that I do see some of its fellow P...ONG cars about.As said above, I imagine eBay and the internet does contribute to cars being moved around the countryside, not like the days when the local paper or a shop window was the main way of selling a cheap, used car.

My white 405 is on Berkshire (L.....JM) plates, and in fact was first registered at the Newbury dealer to a couple who live in the next street! It stayed local until I sold it to a fella from R-R in Essex, happy to have it back in the fold though.New 405 estate is on an "AG" which I have no idea of the origin, the car was always local to Southampton but was first registered with a lease company so could have been plated anywhere.I think of the previous 25 or so cars only one other (the gold Rekord) was on Berkshire plates, I did have an Audi 80 quattro on Oxfordshire plates though.

Is there an online reference that informs you of the origin of the old system of plates? Whatever it is, I haven't been able to find any logical pattern to it. Mind you the new system.....HK = Portsmouth wtf??LD = London I can understand & CK = Cardiff also has some semblance of sanity (well the C bit anyway) which were 2 of dad's previous company hacks but HK! I dunno :roll: :? Dad's latest is CE57 JUU, which I assume must also be Cardiff.

Pah. I have been owned. Can I have a wooden spoon for the furthest from home UK car, my 325i being originally registered in Northern Ireland, which is about as far from here as you can get really.
