That's a matter of opinion.
I agree. I like Ash, would love a historic plate, just because they look so good being on a black background and just numbers making it more special than just normal plates.
What I'm saying is, the whole thing with auctioning just a few historic plates relative to the many tens of thousands they have locked up is nothing but a scam. When they do auction them they lead people to believe they are more rare than they really are. Just imagine what would happen to the prices of the existing custom plates if TSA just suddenly announced that they were no longer selling custom plates. They would go ridiculously high. But since they are freely available 24/7 for you to pick on the net, they are worth nothing more than $190 a year. Just imagine if TSA didn't lock up the historic plates and sold as people demanded - they'd be worthless crap now. Given the size of Adelaide, every 2nd bloody car would have a historic plate!! That's why it's a scam. There's a lot of people (but not all people buying them because they are exclusive and more special. They have forgotten that real car lovers on here (some of which who have historical plates) really do love those plates and would love to get their hands on some. Sorry this is full on, but this makes me angry.
Edit: Offensive material removed and correct price of custom plate entered.
