    I did see a car with PEN 1 S. What sort of wa*ker chooses to sport that?

    Several years ago, I was at a medical conference, and there was a car with PHY 510, owned by....guess what type of health practitioner?
    Very clever, I thought!

    Then there was the Chiropractor who owned 130 NES.

    we used to live near Peter Grant when he was alive - if you don't know of him, he was the legendary manager of Led Zeppelin and Bad Company.

    he had LZ1 and BAD1 on 2 of his cars (he had a few!)

    i last saw LZ1 on a Mini driven by his daughter

    Best plates I have seen were COM1C on Jimmy Tarbuck's Rolls Royce and B1 GOT on a Mercesdes.

    100 MPH and MPH 100.

    Bristol Cars trade plates that were used to ship cars around the UK. Often seen on the M4 delivery run from Bristol to London.

    I don't have a sister.

    All my screwdrivers are cordless.

    Yes, it looks better on the actual plate, especially as it was before the days when they clamped down on spacings.

    The 1 and the 3 were closer together.

    I used to work with a guy who had UPU2 back in the late 60's - he had it spaced out to read UP U 2.

    on a very nice black Astin Martin, just outside of Shepton Mallett in Somerset where the cider mills are...

    It made me laugh as its such an incongruous reg for that type of car.

    Not sure if this one exists, but would perhaps suit a friend of the Tory party:

    BA 11 KER
