Great number plates - got any?

I have this rather excellent tome, car numbers 1904-1974, a pre-internet attempt to list all the interesting registrations by a Mr Noel Woodall.

I occasionally have a Flick through to find stuff like PEP 51, in 1974 it was on a Japanese coupe I can't quite place. I'm sure PepsiCo would love it

Fiat 124 Coupe. I have a more recent tome called "Car Numbers Then and Now" which is basically an update of the same work I think. PEP 51 is listed as owned by a different individual (no pic). No sign of it on DVLA car tax checker though (zips up anorak and leaves the room :-) ).

F40BLU today outside when I didn’t have a camera. On a blue F40 obviously.

That's recently been in the news as it sold for over £1 million, the highest price ever reached by an online-only auction in the UK. Here it is at Bicester Heritage a few years ago accompanied by some other exotica.

FSO and F40

I think that could be a FIAT 124 Sport Coupe, one of the best looking Italian cars eva.

Talking of expensive plates....

For those of you on Facebook, "Sitting rotting in a driveway" is a very interesting group

However, this one turned up yesterday. Apparently it's for sale for a shade under £300k. A similar one (7D?) sold for £274k recently.

May be an image of car and outdoors

A shiteworthy group if you will.

Sent this to my mate BRIan. Is the plate worth more than the car?

It's probably worth more than the bank behind it. 

The way the press is operating at the moment my comment is probably enough to cause a run on the bank due to 'Banking Crisis'.
