Doesn't have a little union jack next to the letters does it? :lol: You could try selling it to Jacob Rees Mogg or some other Brexit fanatic or, failing that, just keep it in the garage until April.

My Elan +2 reg starts SKK

What should I do?

I have done the inkblot test, but the violence displayed by my mother towards my father has always dismayed me http://theinkblot.com/
Kindest regards

I thought in Scotland the vote was to stay in Europe, so you need "BNW" (Brexit No Way) :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I can never understand why people etch the windows :shock:

Topic drift,
years ago when etching windows was seen as a security measure to stop ringing of stolen cars a friend took delivery of what was then the new Vauxhall Frontera 4x4 complete with security widow etching.

Only problem was that they had etched the wrong number onto the glass, it was a digit or character that was done in the wrong order I can't remember which, but the upshot was that he very sternly told them to put it right. So they got a specialist company to polish out the etching and go over it again which made a total nonsense of the supposedly permanent security mark that nobody would be able to change. When the car came back it was pretty obvious that the marks had been polished out and a new number applied. The dealer offered to change all the glass or give a £1000 discount (the glass job must have been a horrendous cost), my mate took the money and sold the car no problem 4 years later to another dealer.
Kindest regards
