Can't find the other thread. Surely this isn't real.

Other thread here - https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&...

But more recently it appears to have been taken over by 2 posters that have taken the original fun out of the thread with just posting pictures & having a chuckle and turned it into a "everyone's a chav" thread.

Re the plate - it appears to have been moved onto an '07 Merc Sprinter at some point based on the details on Cazana.

A Google of the plate itself seems to suggest that it wasn't an actual NHS ambulance it was attached to and was likely a private ambulance that had been left liveried up.

Ah, makes sense. It was at Alnmouth, no far from Newcastle.

You'll need to use your imagination on the next one, it was "Y 5" zoomed in and taken from the opposite side of a moving Park & Ride bus in bright sun in Brighton. Apparently an 11 year old SL63 with 13,000 miles on the clock.

Ah! That Merc will be the one I saw from a distance and thought it was V5!

Spotted in Cheshire Oaks the other day!


A couple more along the lines of consecutive numbers and letters. 777 DH is now on a 911 4S Targa and 777 HH is on retention.

I see AG51 BUS quite often around Morley, always thought it was quite clever.

Couple of early-issue plates in Leeds recently:
H 34 on a Merc E53 AMG.
T 1500 on a Mulsanne.

Interesting that 2 OOO sold for £25k+ fees back in 2010 through DVLA but is currently only at 17k, guess there will be a lot of late bidding!
