IMO, the auction results were as random as the plates themselves. There isn't much science to it, by the look of the results. While it's true there are less three digit numbers than four digit numbers etc, the prices show that premiums will be achieved for special sequences over random numbers.

A very, very good result for the government.

Or rather the wider South Australian community!

As stated on the DTEI website "Numeric plates are selectively sold at auction. All proceeds go towards road safety initiatives to benefit the wider South Australian community."

One plate was passed in – plate 6240 at $4900- a relatively unremarkable number but this shows the Government do set reserves. The plate should have been re-offered at the auction’s end where it likely would have made another hundred more which probably was its reserve.


I thought I was going crazy but the plate was "6420" not "6240". Just even numbers declining which I thought was an ok number.

Love the story in today's Tiser of the woman who paid big money for [925] which she intends to put on her "new Porsche 925 Turbo"  :doh:

Hmmm,

The Advertiser I was told made this Porsche reference up for the story....they chased her for a story and refused her desire to not be photographed or interviewed....so made this up in the end. No reference to "925" and "model" and "Porsche" was made by her......

She & her husband are my hosts at our regular weekly night-time tennis hit. I was pleased to see that all my historic plate encouragement had worn off on them.

Re today's article, PR works best when it happens BEFORE an event not the day after, so lucky for the auction bidders this was done wrong way round, probably keeping the prices lower than they may have been.


925 was desired for a bit of fun as in "a 9 to 5 working day", someone else was fighting for it too.  I didn't know last night who had bought it - after a call today I do.

It'll likely go on their new PDK 2010 997 Turbo.

Cheers

Stew.
