HE11MED

About four years ago it dawned on me that when the '11' series vehicle registration plates came out, one of the combos would be HE11MED.

So, even though I am not a big fan of personal plates, I saved up my pennies all these years and waited. And waited. Eventually I got an EMail from DVLA saying that the 11 series plates would be available from Dec 7th at 08:30. A quick check revealed that HE11MED would only be 399! Obviously the DVLA boys hadn't spotted the combo. It would be mine...

So, spot on at 08:30 I signed on and...it was gone! Then I realised that today is actually December 8th!! AAAAAAAARRGHHHH!!

So...the question is...did anybody on PPRuNe grab this plate?

FF

PS I checked for my second choice and sadly ID 10 T wasn't available either....

Hard luck Flaxton Flyer

Know a guy who bought A5AAB for his SAAB 900 many years ago and finally flogged to the MD of SAAB GB at a considerable profit !!

Bummer! That could have been me making 1,000 in 24 hours!!

That price doesn't include VAT, transfer or physical plates - the total is nearer 1750 with all that on top. Little bit too steep for a penniless driver, I'm afraid.

However, if enough Ppruners feel sorry for me and my tragic loss, perhaps a charitable Xmas collection could be arranged?

Shall I set up a "justgiving" site??

It's a good job you're not playing the stock market, selling your shares the day after the price plummets !!

Try buying : BO 11 OKS instead, It could be your catchphrase !!

Nice idea Tarman, I'll take it under consideration! However, it may be cheaper to get HE11KOV or some other foreign-sounding name and change my name by deed poll to match. I really don't know why more people don't do that...

Whilst on the subject of 11 regs....wonder if anybody got HE11COP ?

Helimed drivers can't afford personalised plates!
Some paramedic or doctor type will snaffle it.

BA11 BOY
CA11 HER
HE11 MAN
FA11 GUY
RO11AND

Of special interest to one of our Rotorheads ...TA11SAR and it's cheap as chips!

Quentin Tarantino could have KI11 BIL
The moderators could share KI11 JOY
Head of the English World Cup bid - BA11SUP

Windsor - I contacted that company and....surprise! Not available.
