Thanks to California’s Legacy License Plate program we’ve been talking a lot about the proper period-correct license plates for your JNC recently. We’ve been Cali-centric, but we’d like to open the question up to our readers worldwide.
What’s your favorite period-correct license plate for your JNC?
A visit to Nissan resto-mod specialist Rocky Auto last year revealed a hakosuka GT-R with a a very unique plate. To quote David, “In Japan, whenever a car changes owners or is de-registered its plates are sent in to the rikuunkyoku, or vehicle registration center, and subsequently destroyed, whereupon new plates are made and re-issued. This plate, however, was the original plate, with only one digit on top rather than three, from when the car was brand new. That means that this KPGC10 GT-R is a one owner car!”

Our winner this week is CobaltFire, who says of the mysterious trend of mint hi-po Hondas coming out of the woodwork:
I’m not sure which it is myself. I had the privilege of owning and driving a 74,000 mile, 100% original and in 95% condition (at least) 1991 CRX HF for a year. I was the second owner. I had bought it to drop a hot motor in, etc. but could not bring myself to do so. Taking that car to Cars and Coffe in Dallas was the experience that changed my mind. I had an NSX ask to park next to it (a 1991 in similar condition, red to my white) and had at least as many people looking all over the CRX as the NSX.
I ended up selling it off to a med school student sight unseen (he flew in to Texas from Chicago based on pictures) for over $6,000 about three years ago. I regret selling it to this day.
