Vanity License Plates- PH

PhotoHunt theme : License plates


Photobucket


I bought this license plate in a mall years ago. I wonder if the value of this collector item has gone up. :D

The license plates of cars in Singapore are so boring. Full vanity plates are not available, only the number combination.

Chinese loves lucky numbers like 1, 3, 8, 9 etc. In Singapore, Hong Kong and China, there is a thriving trade in the sale of number plates that have significant digits or lucky numbers.


I cannot imagine myself paying hundreds of thousands of dollars for an auspicious number plate. :)

  2. Haha
    If there is a ECLIFE plate, I think many would be willing to pay tons of money to bid for it

  3. People over here too are willing to spend what I think ridiculous amount of money to get a nice plate number.

  5. Lina,
    Oh, Malaysians do bid highly for significant numbers too? My own Malaysian relatives and friends are a practical lot, they don't spend money on such luxuries. :)
