Saudi-based Corolla owner refuses big offers for his number plate
While we could only hope to be on the receiving end of a sum of money amounting to SAR 3 million, an Egyptian expat in Saudi Arabia has reportedly refused to accept an offer for his exclusive number plate that reads “SSS 1”.
And while we think it’s cool to sport a number plate of that sort, we would also want it to reside on someplace a little more fashionable than his 2000 Toyota Corolla. But it did touch us when the owner reportedly did not intend to sell his car and precious number plate to honour his friendship with his Saudi friend who gifted him this car, according to Arab News.
He also stated that he does not use the car any more, instead taking taxis to work to avoid being badgered about the plate. Offers for the plate have ranged from SAR 200,000 to 3 million. But as they say, sometimes there’s some things that’s worth more than just money.
