Err really? Think about it…
The ones that make me laugh are the highly tenuous / unfathomable personalised plates on bottom of the range de badged Beemers and the like.Posted 4 years ago
At the shops this morning I parked next to a car bearing a similar Orkney registered number. I transferred mine from my Series IIA Land Rover. The number only has sentimental significance for the place and the IIA.
Orcadians pay crazy money for BS numbers, is that regional phenomenon?

An old boss of mine has his initial followed by his surname. But it isn’t his surname. It’s a mispelt ‘almost’ surname.
Equally rubbish, there was an S2000 floating around Peterborough for ages with the number plate S200 — (can’t remember the last bit), so he was missing a zero, but still thought it worth having.
I wouldn’t have said those BS ones are particularly personalised; they are just unusual.Posted 4 years agomudsharkMember

I’m not sure why the Orkney Islands were allocated the BS. You’ll see lots of vintage and veteran cars with high BS numbers. Because the islands registered so few cars before the Registration format changed, the DVLA kept those unused numbers to use on veteran and vintage cars that had lost their registration documents or had been rebuilt from parts. I doubt that there were ever any De Dion Boutons or Bugattis originally registered in Orkney. Most of the numbers were allocated to tractors and motorcycles.
There’s a BS Flckr group.

Rather worryingly, there’s a car plated J1 HAD in this manor – with the Largest Mosque in Western Europe just around the corner…
My brother’s stock plate spells Islam plus another letter. It’s probably worth more than the rusty E class estate it’s on in certain circles.Posted 4 years ago
