Car Number Plates...

It is bizarre to know that Penangites tend to go crazy over car number plates! They always look for lucky numbers like no.1,2,5,6,8,9... etc. All the numbers has to do with the culture, in this part of Malaysia, where mostly are of Chinese origin, they tend to love numbers. Accordingly, it brings them luck! All these lucky number plates aren't cheap as well, they cost the owner at least RM500-3000 or more if you were to book a particular number plate. As you can see most of the vehicles here are luxury cars, some family actually have 10 cars with the same number! Incredible huh!

different cars with the same number - doesn't that cause problems?

personalised plates are big in the UK too but legal requirements restrict their trade - you have to buy the car to which one is attached before you can transfer it to a different car.

Hi Hyde, Thing is that a particular number is being label as auspicious for that person, so no matter how he will try to book that number but of course the alphabets in the plate will be different. Only the numbers that counts!
