One thing that I've noticed with Lotus owners, compared to other makes of car, is that if they have a personalised number plate, then they tend to be Lotus/car related rather than related to their own name. If true, then I think that says a lot about the type of person that drives a Lotus. What type of number plate do you have?

I have a standard number plate with the European Union stars on it.

I will obviously be changing to a Union flag next year.

Just hope I dont have to omit St Andrews cross the year after!!!

Does your EU plate have the narrower post-2001 typeface on it? I think that modern plates look out of place on older cars. When my Y reg Elise needed new plates I managed to get some special ones made up to match the originals, with the same typeface and defunct dealer name and phone number at the bottom. But that's just me.

So is that related to the car or to your name???

The ageless plate came with the car. It has no special meaning for me or the car. I will probably leave it as is once the car is back on the road.

:) 

It's getting there......

For that authentic 1980s look see 

None of their pre-2001 typefaces are quite correct. These are my plates from 1985.

Lol - my surname is Corkhill so C8RKH, my number plate, is pretty close and only cost me £149!  I'm a tight git you see.........

Amazing though how many people think my name is something like Roger Keith Happily.
