In Finland you can buy personalized platess which are allowed to have3 to 2
letters, followed by one to three numbers. ie. you can get AUD-1 but cannot
get A-4...

Apparently the single letter stuff is saved for government use.  Does not
much matter though, this stupidity costs USD 1 000.00, yes a thousand bucks!
I guess our inmates get paid better.  ;-)

To add insult to injury, the plates stay with the car when ownership is
transferred, unless you pay the same ridiculous amount again!
