    No, it's not only you; whilst there are exceptions, I think personally more a testament to former DVLA, now BCA marketing and public demand for what they cannot afford - namely original issue, 1903 - 1963 plates.

    I developed an interest in plates way back in the mid/late 70's and put anything I thought nice on retention upon sale/scrapping; some of which I later sold in order to obtain higher quality plates, an example being in this thread post #19688.

    My mate has:
    B413Y RR (BABY RR) on a Evoque.
    D415 YPX (D415Y P X) on retention. His daughter is Daisy Palmer.
    L14 EVO on his Integrale.

    In my opinion only the EVO plate is any good.

    Didn’t know plates with just a zero were ever issued! I’d thought it would’ve started with G1.

    I thought the same although AskMid shows the plate G0 on a Rolls Royce Ghost.
    Maybe somebody else can explain.

    The Roller was bought for the City in 2018 by Sir Archibald Tunnock, Freemason and owner of the famous Tunnock's Teacake empire.
    2 weeks ago the Lord Provost (Mayor), Eva Bolander (SNP) resigned after 2 years in office when questions were raised about her expenses.
    Previous Lords Provost's cars are displayed in the Glasgow Transport Museum.
    Gravy train, what gravy train?
