    Perhaps "We Love (heart) To Mow", with a screw positioned on the nought?

    The owner of the company I work for has 'B 5' on his Merc SL63 (his name is B.Scott)

    Rumour has it the plate used to belong to Barry Sheene and my boss bought it after his death

    My near miss true story.... I recently realised my number plate of aspiration is LE5-7AH C. On looking on my driveway I found I already owned Lx57AHx. So close but so far

    A long time ago I saw 60 NE on a Ferrari 355 that was coming towards me, and as I turned to look at it go past I saw that on the back it had been pushed together to read "Gone". I too get annoyed with the illegal spacing but I think I'll give him that one.

    Pimlico Plumbers vans all have cherished number plates on them.

    I see them about quite often and they all have stuff like BOG, LAV, LOO, RAD, WC, TAP, etc etc.

    Must cost Charlie a fair bit of dosh.
    Cheers,
    Neil.

    There's a 1 Series BMW floating in the Redbridge area with an apt number plate reading BMW 123D.
    Must be worth serious cash.

    My lad managed to pick up P13 JNH. His nickname amongst his mates is Pie and his initials are JNH, so he just had to have it. I think it was only about 250.00.

    A few years back in Puerto Banus a latest and greatest Ferrari was plated PR03 LEM which I thought was different.

    VW 1 used to be owned by Ian Skelly - Liverpool and Glasgow VAG Garage owner - and he also had AUD 1.

    Local BMW garage has 8 MW and I have seen A 11 and A 111 in same garage 25 years + ago

    A11 FUN is on a BMW new us. Also seen KEY 21 used to be one type. 'Call' seems popular as in CA11 ASB.
    Best I've seen lately is 1OO on a Merc.

    And VW16VAN, amazingly, on my van;


    Neither are worth a fortune but I like them.

    I was talking to a guy yesterday who had a plate (11 LS) and he was telling me that he's always getting letters offering to buy it. Around 10 - 11 grand.

    I am ashamed to say that I can't figure out what a few of the plates in this thread mean.
    One of my neighbours is quite keen on dogs. Her plate is W0F (or WOF, not quite sure)
    Don't take my silence for agreement. I've just realised you're too stupid to argue with.

    Back in the 80's, an acquaintance had GUM800T on his Range Rover and A51 FLY on his 911

    And more money than sense...

    I've had a few good ones;
    BUE11 X on a Buell motorcycle
    S10 CBR on a Fireblade
    R12 ONO on a Tuono
    150 KNW on my first car a BMW 2000tii
    DFF 843 on my first Porsche 924T
    WTT 635 first 911
    R4 RSY Golf estate
    LIB 1313 another 911
    And others I've forgotten.

    We had a hire car due to a crash repair a couple of years ago which had a cracker of a plate KY11UBE

    The Boxster thread just reminded me of the plate we had on one T80 XTR

    BMW used to be a Swindon (Wiltshire) registration, from the 1960's through to the 1990's. Used to see loads of them around the town (common as muck, bit like the cars).
    Apparently that's how Dick Lovett made his millions in the 1970's, because of the BMW plate thing. Started out as a BMW garage.

    An old favourite I used to see (but haven't in a while now) was a lady driver in a red Peugeot 205GTI, with mis-spaced plate K15 SMY (another Swindon registration).

    Was on my x5 about 2 yrs ago and they messed up the mot re assign so it ended up on two cars as far as mot history site. I don't bother with the dodgy spacing anymore it has pretty much the same effect when legal. I have Y14MOT on retention as well if you have a garage and fancy it.

    I had the same with a plate I transferred from one company car to another. I was pulled over by a traffic cop for an expired MOT, however the car was only 3 months old. It appeared my registration was against 2 cars at the same time.

    Might want to check with the DVLA that the same hasn't happened to yours. Askmid doesn't come up with anything other than N14 MOT isn't currently insured.

    Thanks for the offer but I already have more number plates than cars

    It's because a lot of them are mis-spaced chav plates.

    Driving on the M1 on Saturday I saw a BMW being driven by a rather attractive young lady.

    Her number plate was F17TH X

    I remarked to the missus "I wonder what she does for a living?", and then spent the next twenty minutes quietly speculating to myself.
    So clever my foot fell off.

There's a right few quid in cars up there driven by the travellers. Mind you one was trying to sell a stud horse for 20k to another when I was walking past, the seller saying "the stud would shag anything including you if you don't get out his field"....
