Quiz time

Good grief, a bit of a come-down mechanically ...

"The Black Prince is powered by a 127 horsepower, 3.0-liter straight-six. Because of slow sales, only 16 were made and only 12 of those still exist, including this one-off wagon."

All the same it sold last year for 21 438 dollars.

Aha!
The first one I rather like, it is an Invicta but since it's you Jim I want model, year, coach builder etc 8)
The second one has nothing to do with Facel Vega as far as I know, but it is certainly ugly.

Another new member, based in Dublin

Welcome indeed :)
That's a new one on me, not sure if Matt has it on his Coupé site but I don't think so.
What's with the number?
According to Internet 17 BOM is on a 2007 BMW 320D M SPORT TOURING AUTO SILVER 1995cc
And 17 BUM doesn't exist ...

Good or Appropriate Number Plates

I don't think Fred Rambert follows this thread so here are a few of his pics from the Montée Historique de Laon.
Incidentally there were two Scimitars and two Reliant Sabres there, not a bad turn-out.

At least you've found the problem - and it's not too difficult to fix :D

Genders of words are a profound mystery and have nothing to do with sex (or logic). Voiture is feminine, berline (saloon) is feminine, coupé is masculine, véhicule is masculine. Automobile should be masculine as it is an abbreviation of 'vehicle automobile' - but it is feminine :roll: You just have ...

Nice one Dave but watch your gender 8)

Moi aussi j'adore la petite Simca, c'est la version française de la Hillman Imp (mais en plus fort ...)
