RegArchive is an online archive for UK car registration plates from 1932 to 1963 (ABC 123) through to 1963 to 1982 (ABC 123 D) and finally from 1982 to 2001 (A 123 BCD).
Memories Of Your Car
Cars and other vehicles can bring back such wonderful memories for people - especially a car that they owned many years ago. If you have a photo of your old car please consider uploading it so we can publish it for posterity. Add any relevant comments as well - perhaps some memories about what the car means to you, where you went in it, where you drove it and even how old you were.

Sometimes a vehicle catches our eye. When it does, we'll add it to our Hall Of Fame.
Hand Drawn Cars!
Every Monday we choose a Car Of The Week from all of the uploaded photos and display it above on the front page. We sometimes arrange for it to be hand drawn in a rather nice line art style. You can have a look at the most recent ones.
