Good or Appropriate Number Plates

Post by DARK STAR » Mon Jan 27, 2020 8:39 am

NO, IT'S A GENUINE PHOTO !
In France rally cars often run without number plates (probably so the insurance company doesn't know they compete)
But not with Skoda plates, that's a new one on me.

Cue lots of replies explaing how every car ever made that isnt a convertible or saloon, has its beginnings in Tom Karens legendary design... :W :doh:

Seen on a "Bangers and cash" repeat, GTE 1N on an orange thingy belonging to the lovely lass working in the office. Thought that was on Don Pithers car at one time?
