CAR enthusiasts had a chance to become the first man on the island’s road.
1 MAN, possibly the most desirable registration plate in the Isle of Man, was among a number of lots of automobilia that went under the hammer at the Mount Murray Hotel and Country Club.
It went for £65,000 in the sale which was held by Murray’s auctioneers on Tuesday.
In 2009, MN1 went to auction and fetched £100,000.
If the Governor fancies a cash boost, he could consider putting his number plate up for auction. MAN 1 is the plate on his car.
