I saw a clever one yesterday
LYU60V

The letter б is the Russian equivalent of B.
Любовь /lyubov is the Russian for "love", and is also a girl's name.
I saw the trick straight away!

I'm now contemplating registering a vehicle in GB at some point in the future just so I can have that reg.

My donor's partner's reg is **** WTF. The previous reg was **** FTP (F*ck The Police, as my donor would have it).

FTP means something entirely different in Scotland and probably NI for that matter.

And something else again to ancient pre-www computer geeks.

The Catholic Church In Scotland did actually ask the DVLA to place FTP on the list of letter sequences which are not to be used on number plates, but the DVLA responded that this sequence "is not deemed unsuitable".

When the Scottish Sun found that out, it found it amusing that FTP was allowed but a request for the number OR 69 ASM had been declined.

I wonder it FTQ is banned, a popular retort to FTP in Scotland.

No need, we only get Q on a plate as a prefix to note that the age of the vehicle is unverifiable, although I am not entirely sure that is still the case. Afaik, "Q" "I" and "Z" are not used in the UK, except as described above.

That's about right.

Q does not appear on British number plates except in the special case of vehicles whose history is unknown, or which were not made in factories (such as home made kit cars). I is not used at all because of its similarity to 1. Z was at one time used only in Northern Ireland, but that's no longer the case.

Let us generalise a number plate to AB 12 CDE. I is not used at all, and Q only in those special circumstances.

Otherwise, J, T, and U are not used in position A, and Z is not used in positions A or B. Every other possible AB is used with three specific exceptions: all number plates issued on the Isle of Man include the sequence MN so it is not used in Britain to avoid duplication, while FO and FU are excluded for vulgarity. (T was used instead of S for one year only, to avoid SN 07 which was felt to look too much like snot!)

All letters bar I and Q are used in the CDE positions, including Z. As is well known, some CDE possibilties are excluded for vulgarity.

Wasn't sure whether this should go here or in "Coincidences" but this seemed slightly more appropriate.

On my walk earlier, I encountered a Jaguar XFL with "XFL" on the number plate. Not half an hour later, I saw a Jaguar XKR with "XKR" on the plate!

The other day I saw a car, possibly a Porsche, K8LTX
I thought of a former colleague named Kate.
I then thought of her in latex
I shuddered.

Back when I was in the Guardian Angels, one of our London chaps started a relationship with a girl in the Manchester chapter. While a perfectly charming young lady, she was of a larger build, perhaps size 16-18. He vouchsafed to me one day that he intended to buy her a Michelle Pfeiffer-style Catwoman outfit.



I silently thanked any passing deity that I would not be there to see her wearing it.......

Apart from the fact that your friend's (possibly ex-)girlfriend is in no way obliged to be attractive to you or indeed anyone, 16 to 18 ain't all that big and there's a good chance that she could actually look quite stunning in that. This lady here is at the larger end of that size:

These two literally translate into "aw yeah" and "aw no" (with a tone of distinct underenthusiasm), so to German eyes it's an unmitigated delight...
