I've just gotta have that plate!

Couple of years back just before I got the Brera, I was doing some work in a taxi office in Bury when a bloke came in shouting whos is the 156 outside. Thinking I was blocking him in I started to apologise but he stopped me and asked me if I was interested in selling it. I told him I might be later in the year at which point he gave me his number and told me he would give me substantially more than anything that anyone else offers because he simply wanted the plate.

And the registration?

S 842 AUM

Ill let you all struggle on this one but I doubt anyone will work it out.

Well if it is not obvious what it is meant to read why would anyone buy it?

He had an Audi S8?

It has a 4.2 litre engine... Sad that I know

The rest? Automatic... Or aluminium.

Re: I've just gotta have that plate!

Well done people, you did much better than the last lot I put this to.

Acapulco Al was pretty much spot on. Truth is even I don’t know 100%of the answer but for sure the blokes wife's name turned out to be ZAUM. I think the other bits may have been her initial and year of birth maybe.

Makes you wonder though with the prices that some plates go for, you may be driving round with a plate worth a fortune to a foreigner.

Re: I've just gotta have that plate!

Well of course I did, how else would a poor bloke like me afford a new Brera.

Nah, truth is I lost his number, nobody knew him at the taxi company and so ended up giving the 156 to the son in law.
