Registration Number I JON


My great Aunt Rosemary somehow managed to arrange, as her 21st birthday present to me, that I would be issued this much cherished registration number.   She knew that I was taking delivery of an MG sports car and I was so thrilled to discover that it came with this number.

In those days, that was 1961, people did not pay high premiums for number plates.   But I decided, whenever I changed cars, that I would retain the number.   

Since 1970 it has always been on either a Jensen 541S or a CV8.
