After contacting grizz if he wanted my numberplates wich i Had to take off our garagewall , i wondered what the stories were of the plates hanging in your garages and mancaves.
My icelandic plate, my wife found for me in front of our house in the centre of Amsterdam. As everyone in Iceland gets only one set of plates for the rest of their life ( as i've been told) it's a great plate to find!! Very rare!
My belgium plate was on my very first car when i lived in Belgium for a short while. An petrol peugeot J9 van ( with sliding doors) in hearing aid beige. Horrible car at a horrible time in my life. I always kept it as a memory of how far we came and how hard we worked to get there.
The French numberplate was on the car of the local vicar of the small catholic church in the rural town of Asay Sur Thouet in France, were friends of ours own a small townhouse. The vicar drove a small peugeot with the big , automatic, sliding doors. Forgot how they call them. One evening there was an accident wich involved the vicar. Presumably he went to a local disco, drank to much pernod, and got in his car to pick up his boyfriend! together they crashed the car when they missed a corner and rammed a house. Nobody knew the vicar was gay, and the next day, they had left the village , and the people never heard of them again..
So, what's the story behind the numberplates on your garage wall?
Love to find out.
Oh, and grizz , the package is ready , but were in lockdown at the moment and the postoffices are closed.
LZ-89-VZ was the numberplate of our Nissan Sunny we bought brand new in 1985 NT-03-ZX was of our Eend / 2CV6. We cruised around Europe in it, I thought, 1995 14 MJB is my wife's personal plate. I bought it years ago when I bought her a Saab Convertible. The rest of the plates are just common Aussie plates. No real story behind it.
This poster was given to me when I bought my first Eend / 2CV6
I have a few in my garage, mainly from Minis I have owned in the past. The US plate was given to me by a friend at school after he went to the States for a holiday. It has a Dime glued to it - I have no idea why!!
Nothing points at bad engineering more than creases in Gaffa Tape.
