Recent itching of the synapses made me re-think about just putting something elementary together to see if it's worthwhile.

So I spent a bit of time and put together a basic system to list any interesting number plates around Oz - and well, worldwide if you like (have included UK for now).

See it in action here: http://aussieexotics.com/number-plates

At the moment there's no facility for direct user-additions, maybe later but for now it can only be done via email or the number plate thread.

I've only added a couple dozen pages to it, but enough to get an idea of whether it might be worthwhile.

I'll welcome any background information to any plates that might be listed, and of course will remove any information deemed too personal.

Enjoy :thumbsup:

Worked for me, although it was hard to find anything, but then I realised that you hadn't sorted anything for QLD yet.

Yeah there's only a few plates up so far - I just wanted to get the structure right first to make it easy for future submissions.

I think it'll be interesting to keep track of plates over time, when it was listed for sale and for what, when it went under the hammer, what cars it's been on, when it was first issued... yeah yeah get a life hey :p

Eg this Tas plate: http://aussieexotics.com/number-plates/tas/30-numeric

When I get a chance I might go through and add a bunch of the info from the Great SA Plate Auction thread.

Some people are interested in plates for their own sake -  but I just see the investment and trading opportunities they offer.

People have tried to make a living out of numberplate broking but not too many (that I've heard of) have succeeded.  It needs a marketplace to showcase the available plates - and not just a website with plates listed - and AE (potentially) offers  that, although so do drive.com.au, carsales etc etc.  Then it needs business savvy to sign up committed sellers and close the deals with buyers.  It probably needs some face to face stuff too - people don't like doing business on large $ with people they don't know or haven't met.

I've got heaps of heritage plate pics stored away that I've never uploaded - I might send a batch by email to you Ash.

But I haven't taken heritage plate shots for a while since there are way too many for me to bother about.  I still take 1 or 2 digit pics sometimes

Any one or two digit plates are welcome in the gallery, some random three digits are fine, and any "interesting" numbers or numerics on cool cars, and funny/odd/interesting custom plates.
