UK car regsitrations website is offering two "search engine themed" car registrations for sale:

Y4HOO 29000
GO04GLE 30000

Question is?

is the "GOOGLE" uk car regsitration worth this to Google?


Is "YAHOO" uk car regsitration worth this to Yahoo?

Someone down my street has the name of my town on their plate. Not sure why, but it just goes to show that some people will buy anything.

It might be good advertising to get plates with your url (if you have a nice car), but surely better value could be had from a window sticker.

Not sure why anyone would waste their money on a domain that belongs to some British guy called <snip>.
