Hmm, we create a damaged car by mounting off the lamp and the bumper, very authentic. :/


Is the (Dutch) license-plate orginal? I don't know that combination.

It looks like an old Dutch registration with a modern font :p

Until 1951 license plates belonged to the owner, not to the car. There was always a letter (A for Groningen, B for Friesland, etc.) or two letters (GZ for Noord-Holland or HZ for Zuid-Holland, once they reached the number of 99.999 plates), followed by a hyphen and a number (1 to 99999). Strange to see an N-plate in Friesland (N = Noord-Brabant, wich is in the south). My grand parents had license number N-4000; they used it on all their successive cars and on their motorbikes.

How long could you hold these personal plates? Until the owner died, or was it changed sometimes completely to the new version, like some years ago, when in NL the old yellow plates were changed to the Euro-plates?

Between 1951 and 1955 the two systems were used both. After this transition-period you had to get new plates (and new papers). Especially those people who had a 'nice' number didn't like that. E.g. it was very posh to have a low number; I know a family who owned M-1 (Gelderland) and they could pretend to be the first in that province to have bought a car (or a motorbike). Also there has been a 1949 Tatraplan with G-1. But these numbers were introduced in the beginning of the 20th century, after a previous system, and back then most provinces had already several hundreds of cars around. Also it was possible to sell nice numbers (G-1 was originally owned by a neighbour of the Tatra-owner, who used it on his Bugatti and Graham-Paige).
