    New Number Plate...

    Ive been after a personal plate for ages now and never got one due to the amount of buying one and not really knowing what to have on it. Well 5mins ago ive just bought one, to go on the coupe.

    My sister died in on 2nd June 2002 and she would have been 18 this August (26th). So in memory of her ive bought this number plate, nothing fancy but it means something to me. Beauty of having a 51 it gives you quite a large scope on choice, so i made my own. Its not so personalised that you will be constantly recognised by coppers or light fingered buggers.

    Here it is; CD51 JLD

    CD; being my intials Craig Diaper
    51; Cars year
    and
    JLD; Justine Louise Diaper

    All ties in quite nicely in think. Just waiting for fully conformation.

    nice number plate m8, its not in ur face, which is good


    the most important thing is that it means something to you, make sure you get some car pics up when you get the plates on.


    oh and dont forget to tell the insurance
    Observe the masses and do the opposite

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Not being insensitive but is this instead of getting a tattoo in her memory? Nice touch - not in your face but carries the meaning! Really is a "personal plate". Should be relativley in-expensive aswell? Where there no old style plates available with her initials at the end? They would look more personal and hide the age of your vehical?

    Basiclly yeah, too chicken to get a tattoo done, plus my dad has had one done. Yeah wasnt a major expense. There was no really point hiding the age of the car as any one with half a loaf will no ruffly its age.
