Best number plate ever
CFH – those are funny! I am still waiting to see a RR and a Freelander next to each other with “His XXX” and “Hers XXX.”
Peter Alliss has PUT 3 or 3 PUT which given that was the reason he packed in as a pro shows some humour.
CUR 10 for an antiques dealer when I was a kid was not bad.
But cant see the point personally especially given the cost – a bit like a tatoo, dont you get tired of them after a while?Posted 4 years agoBikingcatastropheMember
Many, many moons ago I was passed on the M4 by a car with the plate POR 928S. Ordinarily nothing distinctive except it was on a Porsche 928S.
And the second car I owned came with the number plate FAR 800T which I quite liked at the time. One way of reading it is with a Scottish accent. The other way was, apparently, more appropriate for me. 😯Posted 4 years ago
also heard of a vegtable wholesaler having POT80 on his Roller.
Were they selling some sort of leaf ‘veg’?

When I worked in france about 10 years ago a guy who owned a rubbish collection firm booked out the whole hotel and flew his friends out for his 40th Birthday. His wife gave him a number plate that she found for £25k for his ferrari. I can’t remember how it was set out but it spelt TOXIC.
Was pretty cool. He also received a signed, used, schumacher helmet, and a nose cone from one of Schumachers cars with the bottom signed by the drivers and loads of mechanics etc.
Bastard had too much money.
We had to work our asses off that week, extra services, dinner service that didn’t finish until 23.30, perform some **** kareoke for them, basically just be performing monkeys for whatever whim they had.
We received a 20 euro tip each.

My car came with N5 RYA – the previous owner was called Ryan and he was fed up with it. I have registered it with one of those number plate agencies but they have put it up for £750 which is probably a bit much really. Might just stick it on eBay – anyone know how much it costs to go back to an age related plate?

My dad certainly mentioned the POT 80 plate yonks ago.
Didn’t Fiona Richmond (ggogle it) have FU 2?
I assume an opera singer, seen H1GH C on a otherwise nondescript Ford Fiesta round Edinburgh, and my daughter’s music teacher has again hatchback, BR4HMS which I think rather nice..Posted 4 years agoThurman MermanMember
Just yesterday on the A36 – sat behind the most convoluted ‘name’ I’d seen so far:
Which, by contrived use of a mis-aligned black screw-cap and some (un)clever spacing, produced J41•1MES G. Or “JAMES G”.
It was on the back of tricked-out shiny f off Range Rover, which, going by the vinyl stickers badly applied to his rear window, belonged to some hardwood flooring installer.
Classy. Real classy.Posted 4 years agorshaulMember
couple of good ones round my way
also there a rather rich chap with his initials on EM 1 who supposedly kept on turning down ridiculous amounts of money for the plate for years from a certain music company.Posted 4 years ago
wonder if he was a bit peeved off when they went bust?metalheartSubscriber
I may be tricked by the passage of time but I have a distinct memory as a child (living on the estate of a catholic seminary) that the nuns had Morris Minor (in a sorta duck egg blue) with the reg V1RGN.
Also recall a motor with USA51S which for some reason as an 8 yo I thought was waaaay cool…. 😳Posted 4 years ago
