Number Plate News

Ian "Blink" McDonald, one of Scotland's most famous gangsters, has sold his most prized number plate for over £20,000.

Ian "Blink" McDonald, one of Scotland's most famous gangsters, has sold his most prized number plate for over £20,000.

McDonald chose to sell the number plate following the deliberate torching of his Mercedes.

This incident isn't the first time that McDonald has been targeted.

Members of the Scottish criminal underworld have made several attempts on his life.

Past attempts have seen a bomb attached to his car, as well as a fire-bombing attempt.

Following these attacks, McDonald is now hoping to keep a lower profile.

“I’ve been keeping a lower profile lately and I decided to get rid of the number plate. I sold it for over £20,000 – I was pleased with the deal.

“I almost felt like I shouldn’t have sold it to the guy because his car will probably end up getting blown up.

“It’s a great reg but I just decided I would be better with something that didn’t stand out so much.

“I’m not sure where it is but hopefully the new owner isn’t mistaken for me.”

McDonald loved cruising around in his Black Mercedes, bearing the 'B1 LNK' numberplate for which he was so infamously associated with.

Following the 2009 fire-bomb attack, insurers refused to pay out, causing McDonald to adopt a lower profile.

Just days after his car was attacked, rivals attacked McDonald, slashing his face and attempting to cut his throat.McDonald now drives a Vauxhall Astra with a regular number plate.

You can find a great personalised registration for a low price.
