Correction.

Ollie's and P50's Schmitt.

We sometimes cruise around the West End.

That's a cool pic.  Remember children the wall's have ears (or Joe Punter Public has a camera on his Iphone).

That's just off Regent Street.

Super shot. Best way to enjoy and show the cars off in my book. Being narcissistic over my cars and others you get to see your reflection in the shop windows.

 I prefer the smaller motorcycle plates, which of course mean you do not have to have the front one. Even with it I feel it suits the car better, especially should you own an early moustache trim car.

Gotta be a small plate!  More dainty and fitting.

Imagine a pair of Tridents or P50's....   

Have you got the actual link? would be interesting to
see the site.

Thanks.   

Yep a small plate works so well on a KR.     

But a Peel has to have a large plate.  A Scootacar Mk1 has to have a plate to fit its plinth.

Simples.

 When I get mine, maybe I should put one of my Rover P5 rear blanks on it to accent its smallness, the Rover P5 rear plate of course being the largest standard size UK plate at a whopping 16 inches by 24 inches.  Of course with the Worlds Smallest Car I could always use my 1950s cyclemotor square blank which weighs in at only 4x4 inches & the smallest standard plate in the UK. To put it in perspective, the P5 plate is eight times larger....

 Just waved off a certain Dangle Fishing-Rodd after a visit from the Worcester Pig Breeder to the ICR Happy Home of Blue Things. The day included a somewhat enjoyable run to Faringdon mid afternoon as passenger in one of the best-sorted Rialto estates I've seen, the object being to view more blue things. Black & White spotted things were also seen but the large one was sound asleep so we tip-toed in, tip-toed round, & tip-toed out again.  :)  (A Dalmatian makes a very good guard dog apparently!)   ::)
