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

MBC230K : MERCEDES C 230 KOMPRESSOR SPORT
007 : (comes up with nothing)
PEN 15 : MERCEDES ML 270 (01 ON) CDI
ALF1E : JAGUAR XJ8 3.2 (97-03) AUTO
MOV1T : MERCEDES SL 500 (96 ON) AUTO CABRIOLET
DRS 1C :MITSUBISHI SHOGUN (00 ON) AUTO ELEGANCE

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!

ORG45M Wont, it has 3 letters before the 1st number, its not a valid number
ORG 45M is a valid number. It originates from the pre -prefix times when the year letter appeared at the end of the registration.
