that's the fella you're probably right I just recall that figure in a conversation with him, perhaps that is how long Elite have been around?
He got started in 1973, when he managed to buy HTV 1 and 1 HTV (including the cars they were on) for £200 each, hoping to sell them on to the local ITV franchise holder. However, they weren't interested, so he advertised them in the Sunday Times and managed to make £200 profit on the deal. Thus he got the bug for number plate dealing, and began trading as Elite Registrations a couple of years later.
