Private Registration - S70 YLN


Are you a Parish Councillor? Are you in possession of at least one slightly whiffy West Highland Terrier? Congratulations! Not only do you have a fabulous pooch, but there's a good chance you own a Volvo S70 too. We love the S70, and there's no better way of celebrating it's essential greatness than with this most fitting private registration.

S70 is also a South Yorkshire postcode area that encompasses Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham – aka a significant portion of God's own county. Imagine if you live in 'Donney' and you own a S70? Well then it's incumbent upon you to buy this.  'YLN' may also hold some significance for you. Possibly they're your initials?

Of course, there is an elephant in the room too. Which is that this plate has just a hint of "this car is nicked" about it, what with the slight resemblance to the word "stolen". So those of you with a tongue-in-cheek disposition may enjoy that. (Car & Classic do not endorse vehicle theft and are not responsible if you get your collar felt by the long arm of The Law.)

Whatever the case, this charming cherished plate could be the ideal finishing touch for your favourite vehicle.

This 'S prefix' registration can be fitted to any vehicle registered on or after 1st August 1998 and is offered for sale with all the necessary documentation.

The safest way to buy a classic car online

Car & Classic's secure payment system protects buyers and sellers. At the end of the auction, the winning bidder transfers payment into a third-party escrow account.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you\'re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
