One of the world’s most accomplished magicians incorporates magic into all aspects of his life, even his car! Who better to own this fitting number plate than Paul Daniels?

Paul claims not to have a particular interest in personal number plates, however when working as a civil servant during his younger days, the talented magician had the foresight to predict this registration: MAG 1C. Paul asked if this registration was for sale and who owned it; he even offered a thousand pounds for it! But the answer was a firm no. He was then offered the apt plate on a Mini as his career started to take off but had doubts that it was genuine.

In the mid-eighties, Paul discovered that the plate had been issued to a Scottish Councillor who’d had it on a Mini so it was legitimate after all! He found this out when he answered an advertisement for ‘MAG 1C on a Ferrari’ in The Times. Paul went ahead and bought the plate with the Ferrari and the previous owner told him that he was pleased that Paul Daniels was buying the plate as he was sick of people asking if it belonged to the magician…looks like it was meant to be!

HRM Elizabeth II owns one of the most prestigious numbers, released by London Council in 1903. Unlike today, these early release number plates were offered on a first come first served basis when they were first released. It was Earl Russell who managed to secure the legendary A 1 plate after queueing outside the London City Council Offices all night. Of course, Her Majesty didn’t follow suit to queue all night with a royal sleeping bag!
