    Custom Cobra Plate - A Nice Little Nod or Douchebag Central?

    Ey up Chaps n Chappettes!

    Hope we're all very well and enjoying the weather

    I've offered to buy my cousin Alex a number plate for his Cobra, it's his 30th on 25th November and I can get a N25 COB plate for his cobra at like a proper cheap price to be honest, from a website called netplates who say they take all the admin work out of it.

    I've run it by his dad (my unc) and he reckons he'll look "a right knob" driving around with a custom plate on a classic car and thinks he'll end up telling me he doesn't wanna drive around with it on...

    My point is that its more of a nod to the car being a cobra, nobody will know the n25 is his birthday obviously...

    SO, if you saw it in public, wouldn't you just be like "eyy cool man" as opposed to judging purely cause its a custom plate...

    I get it, if it was BMW M3 with "B19 BOY" it would be douchey, I just don't think this is at all though.

    Cheers

    Nothing worse (IMHO) than a COB plate. It screams “kit car” to all and sundry.
    Far better to put a period plate on the car.

    I would say Cob 1 is the exception rather than the rule. Even genuine ACs with COB plates look nafffffff
    A period plate (1960’s) or a non dating (not a NI plate) looks right on a cobra.
    I practice what I preach as well, these are mine....

    No, they were built from a kit too. Different parts from different suppliers and assembled in a posh shed.
