Being a Californian, this was my favorite. It wasn't standard issue and cost $8.00 extra. From the early to mid 1980s (and still valid).

The only colorful ones now are the ones they put on convicted DUI drivers' cars who have work and medical driving privileges. Creepy time to live this is.

Plates always facinated me. I still collect them today. In 1960, we moved from Mass. to Calif., for the next ten years, we made several cross country vacation trips. One time stopping at "Stuckey's" and picking up travel Bingo cards with the colored window sliders. Those and the Burma Shave signs driving on Route 66.

When I was 16, my family went on a 6-week-long road trip across the country. My sister and I passed the time seeing who could spot the most of a wide variety of objects, such as license plates from the most states. My eyesight is poor, but the color combinations were different enough that even I was able to play as we drove along. I don't think I'd do very well today.

(We also waved to the people in the cars behind us, and kept a tally of how many people waved back. Curiously, nobody from Michigan ever waved back.)
