    Gday Steven. Nice work on the site, it looks good. I’m a keen follower of numeric plates and am intrigued by what makes a plate extra special, bringing in the big bucks at auction. For instance, the recent price paid for Vic 101. I’m interested to hear from others about opinions on what stands out for them. For me, I like the look of balance, such as 181, 333 etc. I prefer that sort of plate compared to sequential plates like 678 etc. And where does the overall look of the plate trump a lower digit? For example, would you expect something like 707 to be more valuable than 174?

    Cheers

    Hi Ryan,

    There probably aren’t many instances when a higher numerical number would sell for more than a lower number.  I think 174 would sell for more than 707 every time.

    Then again, who knows what motivates people to buy a particular plate? I know someone who bought a pretty obscure 4 digit Q plate at auction because it’s always been his bank PIN for all his cards…!!!

    I always like to see the model of a car matched to the number plate, except I probably don’t need to see number plate 120 on a Datsun 120Y. 😀

    Great question Ryan!

    What appeals to one person might not appeal to others but all it take is 2 people to want the same plate for record prices to be achieved at auctions.

    For me it’s a mix of balance and numbers I like. But I get excited every time I see any heritage plate on the road!

    Regards

    Steven

    What about name or custom plates over numerical plates?  Yeah I’d say plate “1” in any state would be worth a few quid over a name plate, but I’d take BOND007 over just 007, hmm then again now that I’ve written that I might just change my mind….. :-/

    I have a pair of NSW plates, one Euro, one BiCentennial, initials and triple numbers.Both good condition. Can I sell them off the cars?

    I believe you can sell them off the cars, you just need to re-register your cars with new plates.  Not sure about your state rules but in WA pretty sure if your car is unlicensed and you want to get it licensed it has to go over the “Pits” for roadworthyness, and the mongrel licensing guys here in Perth always find something wrong with the car that has to be fixed before they’ll license it, thus forcing you to go over Pits again.  Suggest you buy a set of new plates from your licensing dept for your cars before you sell the custom plates.
