Back in the 80's I saw PEN 1 S on a Jag - think DVLA have since withdrawn it (excuse the double entendre!!) Would have looked swell on a 3 series!!

My Dad a shrink got EGO 1 with a car in the 1950's he sold car and plate

Several years ago I did a U turn behind the London Hilton, some of our finest boys in blue in a Transit enquired what it was all about... on getting back into the car I used the old cliche " the coppers are getting younger " . My better half in order to relieve my Alzheimer's promptly bought me a plate with my initials, date of birth, and our names..... just so I could remember it " next time ".... never been asked since

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's this day to day living that wears you out. Anton Chekhov.

That sounds eminently suitable to me - he/she is a Posing C*nt

I'm no fan of personal plates, especially those similar to the example above. No class at all. You've got to be very shallow or vain to think that's cool . The plates which are interesting are those very early ones - especially from 1903 to the thirties and, to a lesser extent, those up to the sixties. Prices are ridiculous, though. M1 sold for 330,000 (bought for the purchaser's 6 year old son!), S1 400,000 and A1 is supposed to be 'worth' 1 million...

Unless you have money to burn on something very old, what's the point? You're going to end up wasting hundreds or thousands on something like the example quoted above. I can think of far better things to spend thousands - and certainly hundreds of thousands - on.

Far less vanity in those days, I guess! Now, you'd be able to retire on the sale of the plate...

Everybody stay calm. Don't panic. It's just the end of the world. It'll be all right, as long as we all keep chanting.

I wanted T14 LFA for my 159 but it's gone already
Me too Mikey... but in the end settled for T1 6LFA, for the grand sum of 250... As the TI now sold, i've just put it on retention!

When I was a nipper and left to drink coke in my dads local, The Red Lion at Astwood Bank (which is now gone), above the door to the toilets was a plate, DOU 12P.

166 & GT

Some years ago, before speed cameras were as prevalent as they are now, I was driving down the M5 and was doing a fair old speed myself, when I noticed a car coming up behind me VERY fast. I moved over to let it overtake and just managed to glimpse the numberplate of the Porsche 911 turbo as it hurtled past at (I guessed) something approaching 150 mph - TUR 80.

A few weeks later, I happened to notice a small ad in a Sunday paper - 'Numberplate for sale: TUR 80... on written off Porsche'. Whilst of course hoping that no-one was hurt in the incident, I did feel a certain sense of poetic justice.
