HU63 N0B

    My personal favourite out of all the ones that I have seen is - K9 POO.

    Although it does beg the question, who would want DOG SH!T as their personal number?
    None of the above should be taken seriously, and certainly not personally.

    Only if you are very creative or ignor one number or the other.

    None of them actually spell a word.

    I thought SM11 DCK was more appropriate ;-)

    W4 NKR also works

    But my fave is this one:
    X321ARO - see if you can work it out :wink:
    Whippet
    Bruiser
    Panzer
    Commuter

    The plate game always amuses me, you can get great deals if you look hard enough and also get ripped if you don't.

    You must have some catching up to do!

    Hey VTech :)

    Do you have some some of radar that detects any threads that have anything even vaguely to do with wealth or status :wink:

    Shame. Highly appropriate for a certain brown 1970s Ford Granada, interspersed with exclamations of "shut it!" and reckoning not to have had any dinner. ;)

    Less amusing, but slightly more cleverer, a Jag XKR with M1AOW

    Reminds me of a horse named "Hoof Hearted" that slipped the attentions of the horse racing authorities..

    Might as well have bought a 3rd one with the plate SMU 6. Ostentatious git.

    Doctors are as prone to any other group of society to personalised plates:
    Anaesthetist at Chase Farm Hospital: 1 GAS (either that or a Bristol Rovers fan)
    Psychiatrist in MK: P5YCH

    does anyone have BE 11 END ?

    It's just a hill. Get over it.
