Yes, my 69 spotting reputatation is in tatters. Turns out the Toyota Hybrid sported the other day was nothing of the sort it was in fact a Honda Civic. pic later

Also saw a definite vehicle from the PSA stable. A black Vauxhall Astra.

It is odd that BJ69 got by Swansea's sometimes difficult to fathom censureship criteria - but "The matter came to a head" was an unfortunate expression to use in the story.

Just wondered why the last 3 letters were not shown? Were they DNF?

When I'm driving I rarely look for number plates, or even car types, so naturally miss most.
I do have to walk a few miles to and from the workshop that fixes the families cars and try and keep a lookout but have singularly failed to see a 69 yet.

Yes they go 19, 69, 20, 70, 21, 71 probably confused you with my edited title! I'll put it right!
