Seen any 61 plates?

61 registration plates have been out since the 1st September, have you seen many? I spend quite a lot of time driving around in one way and another but, I've seen just the one; and that was on the 31st of August on a brand new double decker bus along the A1(M) near Welling Garden City prior to its delivery the next day.
I suppose if you live near any main dealer you may see a lot..or perhaps a large company that changes its vehicles regularly, .
Previous change dates usually have a few around in the first few days, but not so far this time.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Seen any 61 plates?

When I was a child I used to specifically go out on the 1st of August to look for new vehicles.
If I was still a child (some may say I am Cheesy) I don't think it would have the same appeal with two dates a year.
