Am I right, that the plate of the Rolls is so badly faked as the plate from the Mercedes?

It looks like it was made up for the movie, to me.

Font looks nearly right but letter-number combination is wrong for the UK.

Any idea what country is it supposed to be? The production company must know it was wrong for the UK.

Supposed to be a US army base in West Germany, but filmed in England.

Take your pick ... and the only country I can think of offhand that uses anything remotely like that font is Iceland.

O.k., Iceland, this fits. So the guy on the right is a member of the mysterious, rarely seen, ethnic minority of "Icelandic Brahmans" - a minority so small like "Marmite-lovers in Germany" :lol:

The only reference I can find is for T-numbers / Licence Plates for BAOR (British Forces) cars abroad?

I know something of the registration process in Germany (from the 1980s) for BAOR cars but does T-plates mean anything you?

T-numbers were also used in Austria, Tirol. If I remember right, the 3 in 93 would indicate the region around Imst. But I think they had small hyphens and a slightly different font :/

@Sunbar: That's a new one on me. Before they issued (for security reasons) either British or German civilian plates to BAOR-owned vehicles, the registrations always ended in B.

@DynaMike: Yes, I remember those plates, but you're right - they looked nothing like this. I've tried unsuccessfully to find a Tirol plate, but the bottom line of this lot includes Vorarlberg and Ober÷sterreich versions of the plates you had in mind.

Actually both of them are Afghani. The guy on the right, Gobinda, is just pretty traditional. :lol:

Might it be a 450 SE with those headlight wipers?

Most likely it was a 350 SE.
