An elderly man in Australia has found a unique way to spread cheer.

Have you ever spotted a number plate so quirky that it made you chuckle?

Meet Wayne, a 72-year-old Perth resident. He spreads smiles with his number plates wherever he goes.

The pensioner's number plate combo is the new way to say hello and goodbye on Australian roads. He has spent $1500 on personalised number plates for his SUV and camper trailer.

Wayne's journey with number plates began with a small camper trailer. He decided to personalise its plate with a cheeky "CEEEYAH" as a playful farewell to fellow drivers. But when he upgraded to a Subaru Forester and a bigger trailer, he decided to add a friendly 'Gid Aye' greeting on the front.

"I thought, 'Hey, that would match the one on the back of the camper'," Wayne shared. His plates have become conversation starters, with fellow travellers often complimenting him on his 'G'day' plate. "They're always pretty impressed," he added.

"People love them!" Wayne says. "I chat with folks all the time at caravan parks. They get a kick out of the matching plates."

But Wayne isn't the only Aussie getting creative with number plates. Last month, another driver spotted a hilarious plate that read "1H8EPPL", sparking online chatter. The number plate sparked relatable online comments. "Me too mate," one woman commented.

Even more intriguing are plates with hidden meanings. One such plate, '370HSSV' on a Kia Sportage, seems innocent until you flip it upside down.

These little surprises keep Australian roads interesting.
