Great number plates - got any?

Recommended Posts

Spotted 7 WHO yesterday, had to slow down to see if it was Roger Daltrey or not. It wasn't. Disappointed.
 
On the opposite end of the spectrum, a pair of absolute tragedies spotted today were:
- Ferrari 488: DAN12L 
- Audi A3: S3AN W. 
How tragic and empty does your life have to be that you stoop so low to spell your own name on your reg? Or is it meant for forgetful buggers who can't remember their names? Jesus H Christ.
Hmmm, my plate is K 5 KEA and my name is K Skea so not at all tragic if it's done properly ;-).

I agree. I'm a fanatical salmon fly fisher and my favourite of locations is the river North Esk in Angus, a river I spend a lot of time fishing.  I've had N70 ESK for a number of years now.OK it's currently on my sorn'd A6 Allroad with the buggered gearbox which I must make up my mind what I'm doing with VERY soon. Fix or get rid and transfer the plate to my XC90....which is a car I just can't seem to feel the 'love' for. One day I really like it, the next I think it's a dismal PoS.

 

It's a plate that means feck all to most (fishers get it!) but I like it as it means something to me.

Surnames are understandard and sometimes very well executed, like a B Agar I know with the plate B4GAR. Shame it's on an old green RAV4 though.

I just think it makes you look like an absolute tit to put "Daniel" or "Sean W" on both ends of your expensive flashy car!

FUCK OFF

I bought this plate in 2002 for my 12th wedding anniversary present to my wife Jillian. Our surname begins with JA 

It is the best present I've bought her.  

It also makes a 1997 car look older which is good.

Bit strong. 

That looks fine though because a) to anyone that doesn't know, it looks like a completely normal plate and b) it's not illegally spaced like the two example I gave 😉

Yeah, sorry, a little rude.

but if you look very carefully, you'll see that b) may not be entirely correct. It was made by a motor factors the old way, when that was still a thing. and there may be some interpretation of the rules.

Isn't there some one here whose forum signature is a "gentle" note about private plates on a Dizzle Mondeo?

can't remember who said it but made me chuckle coz my mate has one on his mundano sti 155 soot blower estate soon to be moved to a tit x diseasel

I first had mine on a Mondeo Ghia X TDCi, it's since been on an MX5, two Skoda Octavias and now a Karoq, at £80 a time transfer fee I've spent about the same as the plate cost me shifting it about but I don't care because like it (even though everyone has to ask me what it it supposed to mean) and I don't care what anyone else thinks of me because of it!

I mean for one I drive a Skoda so everyone else on the road has to get past me no matter what and secondly it's a diesel SUV so socially I'm slightly worse than a serial killer - I doubt having a private reg makes much odds either way.

Anyway back to topic....I have nothing to contribute in that regard...

Slightly tangential take...

In the pouring rain & dense spray, on the Western Bypass the other night, I read the car in front as K 568 ### (dont recall letters) but that isn't the point...

Obviously I cottoned the car was KS 68 but it made me think how 'OCD' plate types might go for his n hers .... An oldie J, K or M whatever with a plate to mimic a new reg JS, KS, MS so as to have a 'mirror'.

Rubbish idea, I know, but not entirely unworkable :)

When I was growing up my mum and dad had 420EOF and A20EOF as a matching pair.
