    Now that's an expensive license plate

    If you could put anything on your license plate, how much would you be willing to pay?

    This guy shelled out almost $7 M for his plate.

    That's just stupid. Show your wealth by buying an airplane or something. Or better yet, give it to starving children.

    You nailed it with that comment.. I lived in middle east for a long time and I have seen them spending money on things that are meaningless and in vain. They could be sending this money to help children, cure breast cancer or AIDS. Someday when the oil reserves run out, they will know better.

    Re: Now that's an expensive license plate

    After careful consideration, I am gunning for the plate with the value of the limit of x as x approaches 0.

    Note: It's been years since I have taken calculus so please excuse any errors in this post.

    If you think the custom-made license plate is bad, you should check out the "Silver" Audi:







    The myth is this thing is made of .999 pure silver. In truth, this is nothing but a special "plating and painting" job that is meant to make this thing look like it's pure silver. But the point is made...

    Agreed. Although they do say in the video (located in the article) that the government uses the money to give to charities, one of which is a charity for people involved in auto accidents.
