- In 1995, I saw a white Citroën DS with Irish registration trying to get through Mexican customs at Ojinaga, Chihuahua, which is a very small and remote border crossing from Presidio, Texas, USA.Lowell G. McManus

The best one was "You have a strange number plate... are you from Canada?!?" You have to know that the number plate was starting with TÖL-.. ..., letters unknown in the languages spoken in North America. Other people came to me directly and told me they knew where I came from which was a surprise as well. That county in Germany had an important US army base by the time.- I recently spotted a saloon car with a Spanish number plate. Quite a long trip!- In Cairo, there are thousands of old cars where Egyptian number plates are simply put on top of old European ones.----- Message d'origine ----
