Registrar Rachel Kaprielian announced the winners of MassDOT’s license plate lottery following a live drawing at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum in Brookline that attracted more than 100 people in the running for 177 low number registrations, including R12, 2002 and 55A. 

With the museum’s antique vehicles serving as a backdrop, Registrar Kaprielian awarded the plates by spinning a drum and drawing names from among this year’s record 8,585 applicants.

For Bruce Demello from North Dartmouth the third time was the charm. After applying to the lottery for the past three years, he won plate number 8494. “This is going on the sports car I plan to buy myself now that my daughter has graduated from college,” he said.

Ernest Kramer was awarded plate number 5182. The Wrentham native won his first lottery plate two years ago and was in the crowd then for the 2008 live drawing at the auto museum. “I’m beginning to think you increase your luck, if you’re here in person to watch the winners names drawn,” he said. 

The Massachusetts RMV is the oldest motor vehicle administrative agency in America, which issued the first license plate in 1903.  Many of the top ten single digit plates that were first given out remain in the same family and are passed down through generations.

Winners of the 2010 lottery will have until December 31, 2010 to claim their plates and swap them with their current registration.  The winners list is online here, and the RMV will notify all winners by mail with instructions on how they can claim the winning plates.
