    personalised plates

    In what way have they been personalised? We don’t do personalised plates in the UK (despite what the DVLA say, maybe they don’t actually know what personalised means?), they are all generated automatically according to the system of the time.

    Quite like those Orkney plates, ticks all the boxes for me:

    No year indicator to the man in the street (e.g. so doesn’t make the vehicle look older (i.e. ridiculous)).

    Doesn’t attempt to spell a mispronounced badly spelt word if you squint in the dark.

    Eh? What’s the connection between Orkney and BS?

    However, BS is an acronym for “Bullshit”, so for that reason – I’m out.

    in the way that someone has chosen a number which has some connection to them personally, however tenuous.

    Why would you worry about how old your car appeared to the man in the street…?

    >No year indicator to the man in the street (e.g. so doesn’t make the vehicle look older (i.e. ridiculous)).<

    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.

    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?

    As interesting as i’m sure gas pipework and fittings are, i’m not convinced i’d want a reminder of it every time I pass my own car.

    I’d have thought BS 14766 might be more apropriate on this forum.

    Sorry, I’ll get my coat…

    An old boss of mine has his initial followed by his surname. But it isn’t his surname. It’s a mispelt ‘almost’ surname.
    Rubbish.

    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.

    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.

    The two best plates I’ve seen on cars are H1MUM, on the M4 once, and N33 NAA, (NEE NAA), on a car parked around the back of Trinity Road Police Station, in Bristol.
    Otherwise, not something I’m too bothered about.

    Rather worryingly, there’s a car plated J1 HAD in this manor – with the Largest Mosque in Western Europe just around the corner… ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    I don’t see the point of douchebag plates normally, but I like this guy’s style:

    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.

    A guy used to rock up in our area with TO 88 POT on his Shogun, little bits of yellow tape soon changed it to TO SS POT. He drove around with it like that for weeks. Oh how we laughed.

    VAN 15H was one that I used to see fairly often on the back of a Sierra Cosworth . Now on a Golf GTi according to Auto trader ๐Ÿ™

    I used to work for a butcher whose work vans plate read P9 ORK. Still makes me chuckle when I see it ๐Ÿ™‚

    I once worked with a woman who left to pursue a career in adult entertainment, she’s quite successful apparently. Her plate on some Merc jeep type thing is MI55 FKD. Classy.

    Whattyre, is one of those plates on a Bentley? And would he happen to have a connection to a golf related drinking establishment in Edinburgh?
