After seven years on retention, I finally got a car "new" enough (2010) to put on my W E Johns number plate!

That's awesome! I am very impressed.

There used to be a family at our school who had one that was "266 NCO" but I think it was just a coincidence. (It didn't stop me from refering to them privately as the Smyths.)
