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...

Saw this accident on the news here in Norway, plate is clearly in US style and according to the bracket it's from California. Wonder how it got here, no mention of it in the article.

A week ago, I came across a truck parked about a block away from my house. It had plates from the Mexican state of Jalisco.

On Saturday I saw a Land Rover defender from Europe in New York. I couldn’t take a picture cause it was at night, all I saw was the plate, also I couldn’t see what country it was from.

^ Most likely a diplomatic number plate from Bosnia & Herzegovina. 11-M indicates that it belongs to an American mission.

Funny, we just had one of these Fiat 500e in the workshop at work, and I had to do some research to source the parts we needed to get it going again. The 500e (electric car) is only produced by the US devision of Fiat, and only sold in California and Oregon, so that's why it has those plate brackets. The only company that imports these hideous cars to Europe, is based here in Denmark, so the person provably had it brougt over, and it's probably on Norwegian plates. :)

 

Sorry if this was a bit off topic.

Foreign plates are common here during the pilgrimage season & although they from neighboring countries, at 950+ miles its quite a drive. I see plates from the UAE (Abu Dhabi, Dubai ... Etc), Oman, Bahrain, Kuwait & Yemen on regular basis. I occasionally see plates from Jordan, Lebanon & Sudan as well. I even saw Moroccan, Russian & Swiss plates before.
