In addition there were two interesting purchases made by people from the North West of England with 1 PNE and ST08 ART having connections to this area of the country.

1 PNE was purchased because of its association with Preston North End FC and the purchaser is known to be linked with the football club whilst ST08 ART was purchased by a company director of STOBART Haulage Ltd the freight company based in Cumbria.
