Good Evening historic plate enthusiasts,
Ash, I hope the wine tasting went spillingly....thanks for the green-light to post.
It's with pleasure I announce that The Great Plate Auction 2011 has been scheduled to take place on Sunday February 13th, at BEA Motors, Sir Donald Bradman Drive, Mile End.
In addition, we are about to go live with our upgraded website which includes a treasure trove of materials, information and data that I have gathered in my 20+ years of procuring, dealing and trading in SA historic plates.
Sorry for the tease, but I’m going to hold over the announcement of our two digit auction plates to celebrate our new site going live....so keep an eye on www.historicplates.com.au
Further to this, we have two other brilliant pieces of news....again more to come on these.
If you missed out on your chance in 1985 to secure an investment grade, low or two digit historic SA plate, then don’t miss our February 2011 “Historic Plate 25th Anniversary” auction.
Planned for December, this holiday time of year proved problematic for some clients who wished to be present in order to bid; we’ve reset the date to mid February.
We have an extremely rare pair of two digit historic plates on offer, a very low three digit with the lucky “1” and “8” numeral combination and a neat three digit plate ending in “zero”.
I’ve been a 911 owner since 1991, and as both a Porsche and historic plate enthusiast I know that with the possible exception of SA888, historic plate SA911 is the most desirable and cool three digit plate you can buy. We’re auctioning it to be sold on February 13th 2011. Porsche A.G. will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 911 in 2013; you could own this sensational plate ahead of time.
In addition, there are some A++ investment grade “recurring digit” historic plates that are being offered by the original purchasers from The Great Plate Auction in 1985. Keep an eye on the site for details.
Finally, if you’re chasing one of the 26 “single character” plates, then we’ll be able to help you as we are auctioning custom plate “H”. With the recent meteoric rise of historic plate values, in the future we’ll look back and realise this rare & unique plate was a very astute investment indeed, especially given what the single character plates recently sold for in Victoria. I predict that one day (and I’ve personally asked them to do so) the SA Government will legislate for SA to use the smaller dimension custom plates that the other states NSW and Qld use; so you’ll be able to make this a 150mm x 110mm plate....thus perfect for the front of your Ferrari 458.
Worth a punt? I think so.
No one has sold more two digit or low three digit plates than us or has a larger buyer and vendor database; so if you're a seller this makes historicplates.com.au and thegreatplateauction.com.au the finest vehicles through which to sell your plates. If you’re a buyer, we secure the best plates on the market for you to buy.
Go tell your friends- and if you are an interstate investor we can take care of all your needs.
Keep your eye on the press and our site www.thegreatplateauction.com.au
for more details. The Great Plate Auction 2011, a live auction of the finest investment grade Historic SA number plates to be offered in over a decade.
