Last chance to break your 71 reg spotting duck, or contribute some more last day spots. Thread expires today, barring the extensive statistical analysis, and ludicrous conclusions.

What can you be thinking of I wonder? :-D

3 from me bring down the curtain of 71 reg spotting month.

Number 1. A VW ID4 on the A1. The VW ID 3 merges into the background more particularly in the shades of grey. While not particularly being my cup of tea the VW ID 4 has a bit more presence. No photo.

Number 2 A Skoda

Number 3 A Tesla Model 3

Ok Neil, you can add three 71 plate cars to your statistics ( and 2 EVs to the spotted list ).
Car 1 - 71 plate T Roc on tuesday evening, 31st August, in our neighbour's drive. By next (wednesday) evening it was sporting the daughter's personal reg.
Car 2 - ID4 to replace a 3 year old Telsa 3 in a neighbouring street.
Car 3 - yesterday returning from a funeral in Kirkcaldy, a white Telsa 3.
And that is without going out looking for them.
There would have been a 71 plate lorry coming from Cameron Distillery but my wife spotted that not me.

None from me today, mostly due to the Gerald Ford syndrome.

The results are in. Looks like about one third of the UK new car buying population are plumping for electric in September 2021, and the remaining two thirds still enjoy filling up their tanks with petrol and diesel :-D
And the prize goes to Skoda!  (5 spots from the FCF faithful)

Out of time I know but I spotted my first 71 today during a trip to Elstree. It was a black Hyundai mid size SUV, possibly an iX30, which went past me on the A1 when I was doing 70!! I felt that the chart had no representations from the SE so worth mentioning!! :-D

Another mini countryman for me today, difficult to switch off the pre-priming to notice, even after the FCF deadline has passed.

Late to the party as always, just had a walk up to the 'corner shop' and came back a different rout to avoid smokers. Passed the drug dealers house and there is now a '71' Tesla S there.
Usually BMWs.
