How to decode year of old NZ Number Plate...

Have a few of these. Just wondering if anyone knows of a website etc that shows how to 'decode' the letters/numbers for year/vehicle and of course if they are worth anything to collectors. I'm more into USA plates and these kiwi ones turned up in bulk buys i made from old junk shops. Cheers.
