What does this say? CAO 8888? Maybe I'm just too whitewashed.

why would you guys want a triple number plate?
especially if it's going to cost you extra money, and it is nothing special.

also I don't want people to remember my license plate number so easily.

It makes photoshopping the plate easier But it just looks cooler I guess.

it won't cost you extra money for a triple number plate, unless your insurance agent is a douche and wants to charge you...you just have to be really lucky when you call in, or you have to know people

it's not necessarily an asian thing, it's a novelty to have a unique license plate like these.

Go up to Autoplan store and ask to see what plates they currently have.

FALSE.

888 is not the sweetest number a chinese person can get.
168 is the proper answer
