Number plate wanker - show us yours?

Any combination remotely close to my name or birthday is out, and I don't have a middle initial either, which makes plates hard for me. That and my habit of driving early 90s cars. 

I've had a couple of cars with private plates on them but they'd been on the cars so long they wouldn't go on to retention without sending the logbook off so I didn't bother keeping them - H14 DGK on a ropey MX5, and A10 CLP on that shitheap Accord Aerodeck I bought purely for lols.

as the Exo had sneaked ever so slightly* over budget, it seemed churlish not to chuck another £250 at it for a fancy plate :)

the first (and probably only) time i’ve bought a private plate, i’m quite proud of how old my mx5 is so happy to keep its original plate and my daily changes so often it would bankrupt me swapping plates every few months :)

and anything with my initials MJB costs silly money

How did you get those plates with the Scottish flag Tam? ¬†I only asked for a Devon flag on some plates a few months ago and was flatly refused ‚Äúas it‚Äôs not legal blah blah blah bollocks‚ÄĚ Very cool ‚Äė private‚Äô number¬†by the way!

MJ is a Manchester prefix 

@MikeRhas MJ 10 ###

Mrs New POD has MJ11 ### 

Miss Little POD has MJ 09 ###

All came from Local Car Sales Places in the North West. 

New Pods Initials happen to be MJ but my car has a Swansea CE 65 ### on it.

I’m not so much into names, I just like  old plates that look good. I don’t have any at the mo, buying and selling is easy and as long as you buy at the right price you don’t lose money. These are from this year.

Back in the 90s a mate had a private plate on his car, his girlfriend caught him with yet another girl.. she bought some plates with wanker printed on them.. he drove around for days before he noticed...

Not yet on the car, but since I now have 7 MK1 espaces in my possession I figured I should accept my inevitable demise into lunacy and speed up the process somewhat with a surprisingly expensive number plate. 

Couldn't think of anything closer.  What a wanker.

Nothing goes cheaply on the DVLA BSA  plate auctions, eh?

A35 GTE cost me £1040 after fees, IIRC.

How much was ESP 4C?
