Hope you get them cheap, any more unnecessary $ going toward "road safety" cameras doesn't make me feel fuzzy inside.

The record for most paid for a british plate was broken this week for [ F1 ], 440,625 - the money for which is supposedly at least going toward driver training for youth.

Better tell Scud, he'll feel a lot better seeing that.

Interesting... :scratchchin:

Can't find any further info on the vicroads site - they've just taken down the old vseries page.

Also can't access the goingonce.com.au site from this computer so dunno what that says.

Not sure how they'll be percieved, a good deal of heritage plate lovers will turn their nose up at them

Haha so are these the geezers putting the injunction smack down?

AC went for less than I was willing to pay for. Curious about 869 which I wanted as well.
