This one floated up on my Flickr feed.
I’m not sure if it’s the case for all states in Australia, but I know that in Victoria there’s actually a high price put on certain licence plates and they’re traded between people, for profit, within the law.
Try getting the Victorian plate with ‘monaro’ written on it and see what it costs! You’ll need a not-so-small fortune.
If it’s the same in California, then I’d venture a guess and say this plate is possibly worth more than the Saab it’s sitting on. Wise investor, that Saab owner. But then again, wisdom’s a common trait for Saab owners, isn’t it?
