I saw the car registration plate - EVO SV - driving through Glasgow the other day.

Anyone else seen a cool Vai-related regi plate?

I didn't know they made number plates wider than the car.

I was too busy trying to take a picture with phone to check. It was a gold/bronze coloured car, and it was driving past Firhill Stadium, where Partick Thistle play.

Isn't there a way we can find out how much it is worth?

I'm sure it didn't belong to a Jags player-they don't earn enough to buy cars etc.

I be it'd be popular for owners of the Mitsubishi EVO.

You can make sure your private registration is not available to the public, therefore people can't bid for it.

I was told last night that you have to apply for a particular registration if you want it - after that, it's up to the owner to decide if he wants to sell it.

What a cool regi though.

And yes, BBB, Thistle players take the bus. I make more money than them.

Private registration plates are just soooo chavvy though, don't you think? I bet they have coloured loo roll and creole earrings too :wink:

Indeed, but it is still not a complete reference. That's why the help link on the right says if you can't find it, you phone that number.

A bit ned-tastic yes. It's also much easier to get spotted by people, including the police. Your car is easily recognisable.

Gotta agree, the ones were they alter the lettering just trying so painfully hard to make it look like their name make me grin, they often have their name written underneath just so you "know who they are".

Do these people have their names sewn into their clothes and own monogram hankerchiefs.

MTV cribs is good for checking out how many items a B list Celeb has their name or initials on every item.

It must make it easier for the Police to return stolen gear though :wink:


Having said all this Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason's Ferrari 250 GTO wouldn't look the same without it's "personal plate"

I have "JIBBOOM" on my plate, most people have absolutely no clue what it is. In Arizona you only have to display a rear plate but they give you two plates when you register. So I got the second plate autographed and it's hanging on my wall.
