Default Lucky with second hand vehicles

I bought a Thunderbird with the number 990 (previous owner paid 500!) and then I bought a Safari with the number 8888 (previous owner paid 13000)

It now puts immense undue pressure on me to pay for a VIP number next time I buy a new vehicle. Am thinking 8889

I got 9669 for my car. I noticed it after I bought it.

My dad was superstitious earlier and used to get a certain number astrologers "prescribed". It did not work out too well for his last car. Now he does not give a rat's fart to the number

On second thoughts, my bike sports 2596 - the first two and the last two digits are mirror/upside-down images on the digital font.

I have got #4 for my vehicles :

HH Splendor : DL** ** 0202 : 0+2+0+2 = 4

Santro Xing : DL** ** 1642 : 1+6+4+2 = 13 = 1+3 = 4

Somehow got 0202 for my bike without even asking for.

787 would indeed be a special number for a pilot (Boeing 787 Dreamliner). Quite a few of my pilot friends have numbers of the aircraft they fly, most common being 0320 (A320), 0737 (Boeing 737), 0747 (Boeing 747). You could definitely ask for a premium from a pilot if you ever sell your car to him/her

This brought my curiosity back. How come some present day cars have numbers like these? Nick can you share this photograph at the registration number thread too (I forgot the exact link.)
