    In Torbay I have seen COM 1C on some TV comedians car, and we have a retired professional snooker player with CUE 1.

    On the site that is selling the C43AMG Estate there is a Rolls Royce being sold with PEC 1L (can't see any significance) its price with plate when I looked was £3100

    That fits with the vehicles I saw except PEN 15 was a long time ago on 3 litre capri! Hopefully Mr Parish has gained some taste and dropped the Fix Or Repair Daily in favour of a Mercedes!

    CUE 1 is a 'Black' sports car but I can't remember the make.

    ORG 45M is a valid number. It originates from the pre -prefix times when the year letter appeared at the end of the registration.
