Very nice. But no I haven't. My shack is a small corner in our bedroom. The car belongs to my better half. She definitely would have something to say if I had such ideas Laughing It's her world, I am just living in it Smile

Hi Ray,

Which plate?  I bought the M5WJF when they started issuing vanity M5 Calls in 2000, and then I checked the DVLA soon after for the plate, which had never been issued after I won with 4 numbers on the Lottery, so it cost me £1 (ok they were selling them for £250 at the time).  Really lucky to find it before some plate company read the new RSGB Call Book the following year and snapped up the M5's, was a bit shocked nobody in a BMW had bought it.

As regards the 26 CT 4345, I went onto eBay and bought a Show Plate for the Shack, if you fill out the Plate with 26-CT-9999 they send them back without the '-', they also allow you to insert the small text in the font and colour of your choice, so I opted for blue as I wanted to include the website.

I half expected an Admin to say something harsh about using that, but in my defence it will promote the CT.

Anyway, thought about it because when I used to operate RAYNET from a vehicle, I had Amber Plates front and back with 'RAYNET' on them.  Perfectly legal if your existing Reg plates are not obscured or covered.

If you check DVLA, G1 HWY has never been issued, and is currently £999

Hi Paddy,

Here's the direct link, they are £14.99

https://www.platesforcars.co.uk/designer.php

Took the liberty of filling out the design to show you what it looks like (I did forget to untick the Legal Part, so in the picture you end up with the tiny black text, if you're using it as a Show Plate, this is not necessary, hence mine doesn't have this)

Anyone else done this? Screen10
