Terengganu’s State Road and Transport Department director Fauzi Harun revealed that the number plate TAN1 was sold for a staggering RM200,000 last year, making it the highest paid number plate in Malaysia so far. Tan is a very common surname among the Terengganu Chinese-Hokkien.
I am a Tan as well, and my hometown is a little town in Terengganu. It’s obvious the wealthy Tan that managed to clinch this number plate wants to be the best of all Tans, number one! To celebrate getting the TAN1 number plate, he should go TANI. Okay, that was lame. But it’s amazing how much money someone will pay for what’s basically a number to identify your car.
On a side note, there is a positive UK review of the Satria Neo here.
