Ari Posted March 21, 2003 Report Share Posted March 21, 2003 Just looking at some of the number plates prices in the classifieds in Autocar. Surely no one pays this kind of money? Some of the numbers are tenuous in what they are trying to represent in the extreme! BL03 BEY - offers over £2,000! Why? Cos it's supposed to read "Blobbey". Well no it doesn't, and who wants that anyway (apart from Noel Edmunds perhaps!?) SO03 ENS - offers over £2,000! Apparently it reads 500 Benz! Err, nope.... How about BDS 5? Well, quite a nice plate if your initials are BDS I guess, but it's up for £30,000!!! cos it looks a little bit like "Boss". Presumably if you squint a bit. And it's dark. And you're stood a long way back. Facing the other way.... Or FA03 CUP. Well, bit of a nice novelty plate for a football fan I guess. But £4,000!!!??? They're having a giraffe surely.......??? Or my fave... SLR1. Great plate for your new Mercedes SLR for sure. Please form an orderly queue and start your bidding at £195,000!! Wonder if he'll take an offer...... I can't believe they even get a phone call. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
