    I like your thinking, @=bg=. Had a similar thought many times driving home from work.

    Saw the equivalent of this one (though "007GAL"), US Virginia plates.

    Definitely took you as observing plates in existence, @=bg=. There are some clever ones out there.

    I guess for future sightings I should report the make and model as you did.

    This one of mine is rather more oblique, but still...

    My registration plate here in the UK ends in 2805, which is the birthday of Ian Fleming (28/05/1908).

    It was already on the car when I bought it and as a Fleming/Bond fan it was a nice little added bonus although I only noticed it after buying the car back in 2011.

    Happenstance can be a great thing, @Dragonpol. My co-worker relocated to work in the area and the state-assigned plate had the same three-letter code as the purchase program he was responsible for.


    Now this guy is all in, fully committed.

    That's lovely! It's not as easy over here, since you can only have registrations that would occur in the natural sequence, and plates that accidentally include something fun change hands for hundreds of pounds.

    Your best bet would be to look for a car registered in 2007 in Birmingham, with a BO07 plate, or perhaps you could be AO07 FAN from Anglia. If you think of any good ones, try https://www.newreg.co.uk/ to see if they're available!

    Am I the only one who thinks having a plate like that is totally contrary to the understated class of being an Aston owner? On a Lambo fine but you expect an Aston driver to have a little more refinement surely?

    I can imagine Brozza Bond being this naff but not a serious Fleming Bond like Dalton.

    Funny you should say that...

    With the Aston Martin V12 Vantage SKYFALL plate, probably the guy (or gal) owns a second one for those necessary moments of understated class. So the plate itself is fun and in the spirit of having a luxury auto. (Need to rethink the plate frame, though.)


    What I find an egregious act is placing (any kind of) bumper sticker on an AM. Almost unforgivable.

    So who did that?

    I wouldn't wish the vehicle to be destroyed by flames just for a bumper sticker, though.

    Don't understand the attraction of a personalized number plate. It might make you chuckle, but driving around with it, is just…No, would never considered that.

    (sorry to those who are driving around with one, haha!)

    Agreed. Such plates are pretty crass.

    My current bike came with one! It means nothing to me - I might try and sell it and get whatever the old reg was back.

    What does the number plate say?

    What does the number plate say?

    It ends in HDA, which I'm assuming is for HONDA but could be the previous owner's initials for all I know.

    I won't give it in full in case someone is waiting for the opportunity to trace my address and personal history from it.

    (And now I've said that I'll probably post a photo with the plate in full view next week.)

    That's understandable! I drive a Honda car myself, but it being a hybrid doesn't exactly scream "cred". Imagine if I had a personalized number plate, as well!

    I just checked the DMV website and unfortunately BMT 216A is already taken in California. Darn.

    I also searched Virginia, standard plate, BMT 216A. Already taken.

    HYBRID BYE.

    That reg is trying to say that a hybrid is really speedy and will leave all other cars in a ball of smoke!

    It wasn't a great one maybe but it was the best I could come up with last night!

    ...OK, imagine Bond's reaction if he had to drive a car with that plate.

    That reaction is also my reaction.

    Haha, not bad at all! It's not a speedy car, I can tell you that, so it would have been quite an ironic number plate!

    Like the car, though. Perfect for it's use.

    Yes, I was kind of trying for silly/ironic humour there but probably failed!

    Could do worse! The car actually has a sports mode gear, but I've never had much use of it.
