    Would expect that one to get withdrawn.

    Know of M4LCO on a black Skoda, by all accounts he is a right bell end.

    PEN 15 is not registered with DVLA, nor is P3 NLS.

    It's about time Mitsubishi realised that their Pajero range actually means '*anker (rhymes with Barclays Banker) in Spanish

  8. I heard once (who knows if true) that BL planned to call a car the Macro (sounds believable, given Mini and Maxi), but in France it would have sounded an awful lot like "maquereaux". "Drive the new BL mackerel" would have been bad enough, but maquereaux is also slang for pimp.

  10. I always thought BL missed a trick in not making a high performance Allegro Vivace, or Allegrissimo.

    But then again, given its dynamics, maybe that was a good thing.

    it is possible that DVLA withdrew it but it certainly did exist, he has "6 Ock" too so he might have replaced it with that if DVLA withdrew it

    In America you can choose your own Number plate. This is my mates son with his car that he bought when he was working for Apple over there. I think it cost him something like $40. He brought the car home with him too!

    A fella called Trevor Nation was at one time a works motorcycle racer for the JPS Norton rotary team

    he had a merc and I recalled it spelt his surname

    he had the number one digit or digits slanted to achieve the affect

    Would the rally version have been an Allegrississimo? :whistle:

    Perhaps the timing was not quite right for that model. :whistle:
