Covered in John 3:16 quotes and Jesus is here etc.

(All I could think about was Austin 3:16)


Number plate?



As pronounced by football commentators .

C4MRY on and old Toyota Camry, I didn't 'pap it' as the guy was sitting in the car, I was in a rucking fush and didn't want to strike up any sort on conversation with an old car nerd, I did that a few days earlier, couldn't shut the fekker up as he rattled on about all the cars he'd owned

My first motorcycle (as opposed to moped) was a 1971 CZ175, bought brand new at FK Sharpe in Lincoln. Its registration was MFE476J.   At the weekend I parked my Tipo behind a nice LHD VW camper at a popular countryside spot.  Its owner offered me a folding seat so that I could eat my sandwiches in the sun.   Very nice of him but I politely declined because I have a natural aversion to flimsy folding seats - I don't trust them.   He then opened the VW's rear hatch to extract something or other and that caused me to notice his registration: MFE_ _ _ H.   I rarely see old style registrations similar to any of our old vehicles so I mentioned it to him.  We chatted a bit.  Nice chap.  Turned out his van was a Californian import and had been allocated that number.   Nevertheless, still an interesting mild coincidence.

Today another similar mild coincidence: I was scanning eBay for cars to resist buying and saw a very nice 1938 Austin Ruby, fortunately way beyond my budget.  Its registration was FGX35.  My dad's first car, a 1933 Austin 7, owned from 1954-60 approx. (I was born in 1949 and loved this old car) - anyway, its registration was AGX423.  Close enough to give me goosebumps.     

Edit: Another one on eBay today, thanks to @garethj:a Fiat Uno reg K283OTL.  My late wife's Fiat Tipo from about 20 years ago was K293OTL.  Spooky!

Drove past this today in West Lancs, dunno why you would want VISITOR as a number plate but hey, it pretty much spelled an actual word.


At work, you can always park in the visitor space.
