Taking some four years to research and compile, Car Number Classics is the definitive book for all those interested in the history of motoring, or in cars and bikes in general – both ancient and modern.
More specifically, the book is full of information and illustrations on the subject of number plates in the United Kingdom.
Starting at A 1, Part I contains over 1,000 detailed biographies of the original owners of the first eleven numbers (and sometimes beyond) issued by every authority in the United Kingdom.
Part II brings us up to date and includes photographs of the unusual zero issues; diplomatic plates; many of the existing single and two-letter issues; some DVLA issues; as well as photographs from the Veteran Car Club’s London to Brighton Runs.
It also includes a brief history of the various registration systems used in the United Kingdom over the years, and the number of vehicles registered by each authority as at June 1904.
In addition to detailed biographies of the original owners, full details of the original and present vehicles (where records are available) are also given.
The book comprises over 1300 pages with full colour illustrations throughout (except the early 20th century images for obvious reasons!).
But even if you have no particular interest in number plates, anyone with an interest in cars or social or local history will find this book difficult to put down.
