I have a few rally plates too ;) Will take some pics this evening. I only really do "Service" Plates though.
I have a couple of Tulip rally plates and a London rally plate from the 60s too. I think I've hit my limit as to what I can get away with hanging on the walls!

The East African Safari plate is the only one that wasn't a lucky cheap Ebay find. It was my dad's from the MG1100 in which he competed in 1964 as co driver.

Today's job (photo is mid-tidy) - slinging the latest acquisition, a 1971 Moonraker Kayak, from the workbench / joist so that I can (just) get the moke in the garage as well as soon as Nicola Sturgeon lets me get it over from Kenny's :D

Also in the background are the frames of the 1961 Fastakart 77 Class I kart (for sale, if anyone's tempted ;) ), and on the wall the frame of the 1965 Erco G-Type that apparently won the '65 UK Class IV championship. It's Villiers engine is in the box under the bench.

The other kayak is in the other garage along with the Van and the VEPS prototype.
