There are a lot of things a person could do with $20 million. They could afford approximately seven Bugatti Chirons, buy nearly three of Michael Schumacher’s Formula One cars at a record high price, or run an underfunded race team at the top level of NASCAR for more than a year. Or they could purchase a license plate.
The Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency will soon have the ability to track billions of license plates across the U.S., according to a new report from The Verge.
The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles got all of America as their Secret Santa gift-ee, and they’ve given us a wonderful gift: a list of all 330 rejected personalized license plates. Some suggest dirty words, or body parts you’re not supposed to show people in public! Some reveal a deep misanthropy among Ohioans! One says…
You order the pizza, you eat the pizza and as you’re going to throw the box away, you remember that your old Buick parked outside doesn’t have a license plate. Well, who has a pair of scissors and a marker? You do!
I saw an Alabama plate up here in New York the other week. Why? What was it doing here? What could it all mean????
Remember this day, everyone. This is the day they came for our WETFARTs, and we did nothing. Today is the day that freedom died, in a moist burst, one last, damp eruption from our nation’s beautiful rectum of freedom. Yes, the state of California has recalled the legally-issued license plate that reads WETFART, and…
When president-elect Donald Trump begins his inauguration parade on Jan. 20, the world of license-plate collection will meet a sad (Sad!) fate for the first time since the late 1920s: it looks like Trump will be the first president since Herbert Hoover to decline the production of special plates for his inauguration. …
You know, very often, when dealers have loaner cars, they like to give them custom license plates so people know where they’re from? And you also know how some numbers look like letters? Well, sometimes these two concepts conspire to do terrible things. Like what they did to this poor Volvo S90.
Low-number license plates are a major status symbol in the UAE. Wise to this, the state auctions them off and the third-largest emirate Sharjah just sold “1” for 18 times its reserve price.
I’m walking down the street the other day somewhere in California, and I stumble across an Audi A4 with an Illinois license plate that has black writing on it. Now, I can’t be sure of much in this fast-changing planet we call home, but I can be sure of this: Illinois license plates have red writing, typically stamped…
I recently spent a weekend walking around Washington, D.C., where I discovered a vehicle that had both historic license plates and dual airbags. For the very first time in my life, I felt like an old person.
Not sure if this is bravery or idiocy.
In 2012, California Assemblyman Mike Gatto introduced and passed a bill to bring back three vintage license plate designs if they could just collect 7,500 orders for each. The yellow-on-black style, originally issued from 1963 to ’69, made the cut and will start shipping this month.
Are you inverted 180° from normal human position, either through a gravitational anomaly or perhaps the use of gravity boots? Maybe you’re Raph? Are you also a highly sensitive person? If so, then you better sit down. Or, I guess, sit up. Because Texas just figured out that a Lambo’s license plate, 370H55V, can be…
Good news, ladies and gentlemen: Friday is here, and that means it's almost time to begin your weekend by sitting in bumper-to-bumper rush hour traffic and screaming at other drivers, even though they can't hear you.
Today, we're going to discuss the art of registering an imported car with your local department of motor vehicles. I call it an "art" because, like any good art, there's a fair amount of agony, and pain, and suffering, and at some point you get really close to clawing out your own eyes.
This is the Brill Steel Nissan S14.5 with a fairly unhinged LS3. I noticed this car because it sounds like destruction and it has a claimed 717 horsepower. Now I realize that I missed its best feature: the license plate.

I'll tell you when I first realized that we have a serious problem. It was just a few days ago, when I came up behind a car in traffic with one of those enormous plastic license plate frames. Printed on top was the name of the dealer – something like "ANDERSON MOTORS." And on the bottom, in the same enormous font,…
