Re: Best Private Plate

Spotted in Majorca a couple of years ago.. a british ex-pat with a sense of humour, methinks.. (IB is the spanish registration mark for Ibiza, next island along).



Cheers,

If you're gonna get a private plate it should be very, very distinctive or very old i.e. no prefix/ suffix.

Cool plates:

A1 - sold for a silly amount of money.

MAG 1C - Paul Daniels' plate.

B100 PER - just funny!

etc.

Oh, and PEN 15 does not exist. That one's become something of an urban myth...
Well said that man, 99% of them look ****e

COM 1 C used to belong to Jimmy Tarbuck. Sir Gerald Nabarro (MP) had NAB 10. I think he's probably dead by now. Then there was Bob Danvers-Walker, who was the Chris Evans of his day and is probably dead by now had RAD 10. OMG everybody's dead.

Tarbuck didn't deserve that plate because he wasn't funny!

I also seem to recall that Bernard Manning also had a similar private plate on his Rolls Royce. Can't remember what it was though

Re: Best Private Plate

Guy in my town has 'A12'....looks very cool as the plate is about 4" long....

He's had it years....I've seen it on a Red 3-series estate and also a Golf GTI

Saw a Black Merc on the MWay years ago with the plate.... 'AGA55Y'.... I couldn't catch it to see if was Andre or not!

Re: Best Private Plate

I saw 1HMG on the M25 a couple of years ago, thought it might be John Prescott or Tony Blair's official limo, it was on a Jaguar XJ saloon.
