David,
Thank you for the photo of my car turning into Works Service. My son was most impressed that it was on the web. You were very discreet with the number plate, but I was not doing anything wrong!

Wow, Newport Pagnell must been a fantastic event! To see all the great pictures let me wish, that "Beam me up, Scotty" as a quick way of travelling should be invented very soon!  ;D It was absolutely great to see Harold Beach alive and kicking - imagine, he is over 95 years old! Has anybody taken a good picture (portrait) of him, which I might use for my article on "50 years of Aston Martin DB4" for the German magazin "Oldtimer Markt" in October? That would be smashing!  banana

Many thanks!

Michael

Sorry about the delay but here is one of the three works demo cars together NMV2, NMV3 and the convertible which was NMV4. It's taken 11 years to get the 3 cars together!

Great picture.  

I wonder if the NMV4 registration could be recovered / repatriated?

The actual original plates still may be with the car and I'm not sure any other car is registered NMV4. AML have an archive photo of the car from about 1965 (which they used as part of one of the collages on the wall by the old Vanquish finishing line) which showed it as YJN100. Without the help of someone with a very long memory (eg the late great Roger S), I doubt we'll ever know why the number was changed when it was, unless the owner has the history

I am not sure, but I think this means that the number can be recovered, since it is that which was allocated originally to the car. If I owned the car, I would certainly have a go at it, given its special history.

Nice to finally see NMV3 - having seen NMV2 previously, quite simply stunning!

A quick search shows that the DVLA do not know about this numberplate NMV4. Myabe it can be re-issued?

NMV1 is on a modern bentley Continental GT.

I totally agree - it would be possible to 'park' the current reg on a retention certificate (or sell it on!) and so long as there is sufficient doccumentary evidence, I would be able to sign off the V765. I know this as Neil_M just sent me the doccuments!

If that's definite, that's identified a possible anomoly in the Millenium Register

I've only got the same register as you to go on until I pick everything up from Neil sometime soon - when I have that and more of the register goes into the spreadsheet ( and database) then I will be able to make changes too

Exciting isn't it?
