I just got a letter from VicRoads that they want me to return my XXX69R plates. WTF? Why did they issue them to me in the first place?
You make something idiotproof, they'll make a better idiot.

Just got them a few weeks ago. They were going to go on an orange Murcie. Since the car sold from under me, no need for the plates anyway since they wouldn't suit anything else.
Just in case they thought I would say that to them (FO), they reminded me that even if I don't return the plates to them, I cannot put them on a car as they revoked my right to display them.
I'll scan the letter tomorrow at the office.

Heritage/numeric plates have class though, custom plates are good for a giggle or to just have something less ugly than standard plates, but when it comes down to it I'd choose a nice low numeric number.  I can't afford that though, so I got a custom plate [ WTF ] :p

Well you could see it as an investment with the way prices are going up.

No I meant historic ones. They are going up in "value" a lot. It's not a matter of how much you can afford to spend because you can sell them in the future for a higher price.

Of course - but like I said we've missed the boat for the big % gains, that really happened over the last 5 years.  Still a good investment as far as I can tell, but the entry price is much higher now and so unlikely to be worth doing it specifically to make a buck.  I want numeric plates just cos I *want* them.

Kinda getting bored with my Tom Cruise plates...thinking of:

[NO CO2]
[OIL HOG]
[FKDOZN]

or just going back to standard plates..

Numeric plates just doesn't do it for me..especially at the high $$$$ that they're going for.
