I think if you're going to waste your money then at least get one that's not a registration year plate, i.e. the ones that cost proper money.
On thing I can guarantee, the DVLA will never have the number you want.
The wrong year on the other than does provide some amusement when people comment on how well its looking for its age!

So far, they won't allow registrations to be re-born from the scrapyard. Every car that has been scrapped has had its plate cancelled - unless it was a personal plate that was transferred beforehand.
It seems obvious to me that at some point DVLA will allow this, and the info on their site hints at this too. At this point, all kinds of plates will be available - we'll all be able to get our dad's old reg plate on our car, the one from our favourite old British film, and there will be thousands of ageless plates available too. This will also mean that the current small number of special plates that are already around will become almost worthless with the huge new supply of others.
