Yes, number plate is just not quite legible :(
I've tried cross referencing with the register many possibilities, but not got a match (I.e. possible match - wrong colour)
Therefore, unless someone can read it better than I can, or admits it's them :P , it might not be on the register...

Pretty sure that’s no. 66

Scroll down and you’ll find the advert (my old website from when I was GTC reg’). Iirc the seller was keeping hold of the plate, so that’ll be why it doesn’t cross reference.

The position of the GB plate seems to tie up :)

That, the chrome boot lettering and lack of black painted panel on boot lid lip :wink:

Looks like someone painted the wheels that were black on the advert linked above.

Yep, M25 on route to a gig that evening in Narbeth, S. Wales. That was a trek!

However, outside the Slug & Lettuce in Hanover Street, W1 has me puzzled. Clearly I would not have left it on a dble yellow in C. London, I know better than that!
What was the date? Was Regent Street Festival on that day? A Sunday in the last 2/3 years? This is less than 50yds from Regent Street, it would have been closed to traffic and I would have displayed an artists permit. Or was I in the vehicle?
Regards
G

And yes, I had the wheels painted....

Hi Trevor,
I was playing at Span Jazz, Plas Hyfryd.
We didn't play Dazed & Confused but I wonder if there's scope for a jazz arrangement!
Regards
