That's a good one Richard.I believe Sheen's mate, MotoGP commentator Steve Parrish owns PEN 1S.
Heh. I though all those had been 'reserved', i.e. never made available. Leeds used to have the UM registration, and you never, ever, saw 'BUM' - and believe me, I looked. I know Jimmy Tarbuck had a Roller with COM 1C on it, but that's not very rude.
Round my way a local abattoir owner had GPP1G, but the police made him re-space it. There was also a Jag XJ12 with MPH140, and one I still see regularly is an old dear in a Mk11 Capri with DOR1S....
Awww. I saw a black BMW M3 with M4 MAD once, although it was on the M5. And speaking of Jaguars, the local Jag dealer had a car for test drives which was B16 CAT - I assume a Jaguar promotional vehicle.The owners of the Ferry Inn, North Ferriby, used to have an old black Beemer with SAT 1N, which I thought was quite cool.
Hi Richard:-From:- http://www.nice-reg.co.uk/Registration Number: PEN15Details/Information: Rude Plates 'PENIS'!Owners Include: Steve Parrish, ex-GP Bike Racer and Truck Racing ChampionVehicle(s): Smart CarPhoto(s) provided by: Nice-RegPhoto at:-http://www.nice-reg.co.uk/number-plates/PEN15.html
Just realised it's PEN 15 rather than PEN 1S
I sit corrected, slightly. I still think that PEN 1S was never made available, but PEN 15 is very close!The new-style numbers don't offer as many possibilities, but I seem to remember that JE51CAS was commanding a 5-figure sum prior to its release.
Does anyone own D1 KHD ?
Good one Richard. I always called divans dive-ons when younger. Can't remember why so don't ask. :)
Hope they have another in their fleet numbered "D1 V1NE"
Brian - I genuinely did go to Uni with someone called Richard Head. And of course I have been called 'Dick' in my time, though probably not for good reasons.Rosie - I like that, and will use it from now on. And I won't ask, but I can indulge my imagination, surely?Windsock - it's their only vehicle as far as I know, and the owner isn't a Jesuit :) I'm looking for one for myself now, D1 VOT or D1 VVY. I believe there is D1 ANE somewhere, but I bet it's worth thousands.
And welcome back, Windsock! Good to hear from you again.
