H192 ERT, Smack The Pony, S3, Ep. 5

When you spot a 480 and wonder if it's someone from the forum: ask it here! One rule: do NOT post registration plates.

Rear lights look pretty decent as well, and the arches :cry:

I remember when I was playing Forza Horizon 2 I decided to make realistic number plates for my cars, and when I made an H-reg for a Vauxhall Lotus Carlton I looked it up and found it was originally on a 1721cc Volvo, could it have been a 480?

I'm on holiday at the moment so can't bring the number up but is was H*** CDL, and I came up with it at random

Smack The Pony was filmed around 2000 so car would have only been about 10 years old.

Tax due 2003 so it didn't last much longer

Shame, looked like a Turbo as well, in a nice colour...

Of course it could be 'mothballed' in a garage or barn....
