    Personal Plates - Again!

    No, I'm not looking to open the debate about personal plates generally. It's been done to death. I just want to share a plate I saw today, and get peoples' thoughts.

    One of the themes that arose from the previous debate was that amongst those in favour, it was often regarded as a "finishing touch" on a top quality car. Well, I saw a top quality car (not one I would necessarily own - even if I could - but undeniably a very fine car). But rather than making the car even more special, the plate on it was, for me, a total ruination.

    The car was a brand new Roll-Royce Phantom Drophead.



    And the personal plate on it was............

    "TOO6EXY"


    In an instant, the illusion was, for me at least, shattered. Instead of thinking what an awesome and imposing piece of machinery the car was, all I could think was what a complete and utter arse the owner was.

    But did you see the owner/driver to confirm if this was a case of false advertising or not?! For instance, if said Roller crept along the road and you saw the plate and thought "what a prick", then the car came to a halt and out popped **insert hotty totty of your choice** would you think the same or admit it was a fair statement??!!

    Yes, I would. Anyone who feels the need to advertise their sexiness, by definition, isn't.

    TOO 5EXY could have already gone?

    Anyway, who cares, they have more money than us lot and dont spend their evenings talking on internet forums slagging off other peoples choices in possesions and how they spend their money.

    The W3NCH and Merc thing checks out on the dvla website.
    She paid her roadtax on 1/2.
    The Rolls and TOO SEXY thing doesn't check out, which is strange.

    Saw xx WAG on an X5 on the way to work this morning, had to chuckle to myslef as there was some old wrinkly bird at the wheel, somehow I doubt she is the wife or girlfriend of a footballer as the acronym is meant to signify, unless there's a footballer out there into women 3 times their age!!!
