Aye, that's what I did too, plate 'wrongly' spaced for years, until they gave me a VDN outside my house - and this by the boys who'd known both me and the car, and had driven past countless times.

They had the good grace, when challenged on this, to admit they were meeting targets.....

I cringe when I see stunning cars like this on salt encrusted roads but then keeping it in the garage would deny you the visceral enjoyment of driving it. Enjoy.
