Good or Appropriate Number Plates

Post by MickP » Wed May 22, 2019 8:44 pm

Picked up the Volvo on the rear camera of my little wee Honda and the Land Rover on the front camera of my big muckle Ducati.

I assume the Volvo must be a Northern Ireland plate?

There seems to be a lot of this about here and it is not the sort of thing that impresses me in any way but since I am testing various anti-vibration camera mounting methods I am picking up a lot of random plates. Keeping up with the "Joneses" (or whatever) aside, this one is better than most, I suppose:

I'd say you have cracked your anti vibration mount if you are getting that sort of clarity.

Good spot on the plate too, thanks for posting.

BUG 1 - £17,800 in 2000
BUG 11 - £4,200 - 2004
BUG 111 - £2,800 - 2011 Probably less than the cost of a tyre for one of these cars!

Posted before but here's another BUG plate. not as appropriate as above (£13,000 in 1999)

After seeing a lot of “nearly” plates over the years, finally saw 57OKE today (in Stoke-On-Trent, naturally).
