I bet they were - I wonder if I will recognise those plates after all these years, I suspect that I will ! Same guy had a 1965 Hillman Minx as everyday driver in the mid 1980s after the maroon Bentley vanished

8 CARS MISSING FROM THE REGISTER IN 2012, SO NO DETAILS. I TRIED LOGGING INTO THE REGISTER FROM THE DETAILS ON MY PRINT-OUT, BUT IT JUST SAYS "GOOGLE CAN NOT LOAD THIS PAGE" OR WORDS TO THAT EFFECT, WHICH IS A SHAME, AS YOU COULD CLICK ON ANY CHASSIS NUMBER AND HAVE FURTHER DETAILS.

Maybe "SMS88" can remember a name or better still, the registration from the details above. I have typed it as it appears on my 2010 print-out and have not changed any details.

Regards,
GHOSTHUNTER.
