Agreeed, unless it is BO55 MUS on a Boss Mustang smile

Completely agree, the DVLA must have made a fortune with BO55

well to be honest all cherished regs are on the same spectrum. When you say they 'made a fortune' from that plate specifically - are you not classing all cherished regs as an actual license to print money? These are letters and numbers, nothing more. The only thing that makes one reg different to another is the ideas some buyer has in their head. Like going into sainsbury's and being shown a sandwich with your name on it for £1000 and then actually going ahead and buying it because it's you know, an expression of you.

Its fair enough what you say but I really don't understand why people say no photos of cars, it makes absolutely no sense at all.
Not everyone wants people to know who they use or what their car might be in for. Likewise on an open street it is fair game, or on a forecourt, but once inside a garage or secure location it is very much only with the owners permission.
How on earth would you be able to tell what the car was in for from a picture of it indoors rather than out, or indeed, tell the location of it?

That doesn't really matter though does it, you either respect the wishes of the owner or you don't get an invite again. Simple really.

Quick example- car pictured at a clutch specialist would infer the car is having clutch work.....

Not if it's getting diesel.

I'll have a look for this tomorrow as I go through Banchory.

Also, damn 105 series Alfas are gorgeous. Good spot.

I figured that the garage owner might not want the internet in general knowing what's inside their premises overnight, rather than what it might be in for.

I think the 'BOSS' plate here is somewhat justified: the owner is the CEO for a local engineering firm; the name of which can be abbreviated to become 'UTS'. wink

Fair point, didn't think of that. Or that the van's the owner's and they've made a mint from plumbing laugh
That's just a pipe dream.
Ha Ha, not for this plumber...

He's a right Charlie, just make sure your ticker doesn't go wonky on the job.

On 10 February 2017 a plumber who had suffered a heart attack was found to have been unfairly or wrongfully dismissed at the Court of Appeal following an employment tribunal decision. Pimlico Plumbers argued the plumber was an independent contractor but the court determined he was a worker with some employment rights

New addition to our area: parked one street over. Improves my walk to the station in the morning!
