Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

The illegals – Still illegal even if you are S600REE

Spotted in a local car park, another illegally spaced plate which I guess the sales rep convinced someone it either looks like their name, or perhaps they are immigrants from Canada, and want to make sure everyone knows they are sorry via S600 REE, as displayed with no space on this grey 2015 Vauxhall Insignia SRI CDTI Ecoflex.

I’m only having a fun guess at this one, and might even be right in my interpretation, but as I generally note these days, I’m not really that impressed by the sometimes dire interpretation the plate sellers put on some of their offerings (reading private ads can sometimes be hysterical, when a seller’s imagination is possibly/clearly influenced by drugs or alcohol), when you need to spend time with a code-book to hand in order to work out what they mean.

Barring novelty plates, if you can’t ‘read’ it within a few seconds of seeing it, it’s a fail.

Maybe that’s why I have a soft spot for plates with only 2 letters – probably initials, and seldom needs guesswork or screwing up eyes to ‘see; what the salesperson saw.

But who cares? It looks interesting.

Be nice to know what it REALLY represents – if you know, please add a comment below.

  1. Well, I once had a neighbour who ran a series of Mercedes Estate Cars , troubled with changing plates around at quite a £ cost. You were expected to guess his name was Derek (+ if I remember correctly his sirnam started with ‘A’ ) – I once asked him – why bother ? His reply was he ran Mercedes because the designs of body changed less frequently than other premier manufacturers. When pushed further his reply was that it ‘removed the age’ of the car for the benefit of the caravan site and boating club car-park..
