For us out-of-state, what is the significance of a 3-digit plate? Why is it desirable?
Delaware's standard license plates don't have any alpha characters, just numbers. That makes it easy to turn it in to some kind of status symbol/competition. Think of it as a very expensive vanity tag.
Heck, I could probably sell the 4 digit tag on my SV for more then enough to pay for a slightly used Yamaha C3.
I can't imagine buying a tag myself but I will happily buy a couple ticket to support the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
