Living near Detroit, we see strange vehicles all the time: camouflaged cars, prototypes, foreign-market test vehicles, etc. It's pretty cool. Living near several international border crossings with Canada, I see cars from Ontario daily, and also frequently from other Canadian provinces. However, I've seen several cars in the past few years from some far away places.

I have seen an SUV with Mexican government plates, as well as a 'pedestrian', i.e. regularly registered Mexican vehicle. This is semi-understandable, since Detroit has a large Mexican population. But more recently, I have seen a pickup truck from Guatemala, and today, I saw a Nissan Navara (not sold in the US) from French Guiana! I've noticed that these vehicles from out of the US, excepting Canada, always drive way too slow or way too fast. Maybe they aren't used to MPH? Canadians seem to handle it just fine Canada I also noticed that both trucks from Guatemala and French Guiana had nubby tires and seemed to sit higher up. What have you seen around you?

On a white VW Rabbit convertible there is a license plate that reads "ML8 ML8".

I figured it out just as the VW drove out of sight.

My gf's sister texted us a pic of a plate on a car that she saw. It was a piece of cardboard (cut from a cardboard box) with the plate numbers hand written with a ball point pen taped onto the spot where a proper plate was supposed to go,homegrown all the way,haha!! It was on a getto'd out Caprice Classic!!

On my Silverado I have "CYLVRDO" on an Iowa State Cyclone Plate. I have also changed the lettering on the side of my truck to read CYlverado.

I used to have "BRDCYVU" (birds eye View) on my Saturn Vue...also a Cyclone plate.

Two guys hereabouts bought a used hearse to carry surfboards,and got the vanity plate "STIFF" . The registry got complaints and yanked it. One of them went on to be a state senator.
