It was my son's ambition, as soon as he passed his test, to own the plate S1MON as he worked out that when the S reg. cars came out he would be 28. So he was convinced that by then he would have made his first M and would buy a brand new Porsche and the reg. sadly he didn't make the money and he never got the reg. plate either. I often wonder who does own the plate !!

S1 MON is on an older red Ferrari. It could even be a genuine S prefix car.

Out of idle curiosity (I'm good at idle), I did a quick straw poll yesterday and today when I was in Perth yesterday and generally trolling around today and somewhere between 1 in 4 and 1 in 5 cars (ignoring commercials, obviously) have personalized plates. Weird! I'm sure was nothing like that sort of percentage when we lived in Surrey (moved 15 years ago). Is it a Scottish thing? Or has it just become more common over the years? At this rate in a few years to stand out from the peasants, the thing to do will be to NOT have a personalised plate.

Most fitting one I recall  was APR4T on an XR3i Escort, it described the young driver exactly.
