Around a year ago I spotted a Convertible '65 Mustang from California. Happiest day of my life :')

Today was a nice day.

Mini Cooper with California plates and a Russian Harley Davidson (55 number).
I couldn't take pictures of the Bike, and i was tired and didn't stop for a pic of the parked mini.

I remember when I was in sanatorium (or 'fat camp') back in April 2012, when my group was on the walk, we've spotted a red Ferrari F430 on US plates parked by an restaurant (I don't remember the state, 4 years memory gap). I've had some pics with it, but they were on the now-deceased phone of mine.

Sorry for the necrobump, but this is such a cool and unique thread.


The most distant license plate for me was a Nissan Skyline R32 with a Japanese license plates. I spotted it on the side of the freeway near San Francisco. Didn't get a picture of it though.


Edit: These are not as distant, but still worth mentioning. 


  • I saw a car with a U.S. Virgin Islands plate in downtown San Francisco.
  • When I was in Costa Rica, I saw a car with Texas plates.
  • Hawaiian plates are actually a relatively common sight in the Bay Area. I run into them here and there.
  • I used to always see this car with Vermont plates around my local library.

During a holiday in Texas years back, I saw an Alaskan registered VW microbus in a parking lot at Big-Bend National Park.

If I remember rightly it was the parking lot right in the south with the river where Mexico is a stones-throw away...

And vice-versa I saw a Mexican-registered SUV on the Top-of-the-World Highway somewhere between the settlements of Tok and Chicken, both in Alaska.

I tend to see such plates before christmas time.
Also those from St.Petersburg...

When they drive through Germany to get to the Swiss Alps for their New-Years party.
You see loads and loads of high-end SUVs on the Autobahn during that time.

Also you see loads of Russian trucks with 61 and 39 plates.
Common are also trucks from Kazachstan and this odd Iranian truck I see every other month. I guess it is always the same one.
Never managed to get a picture though...
