Wes found one! Wes found one!


omg. OMG.

Wes spotted a two character license plate:

And he had the presence of mind to pull out the camera and take a picture, there by documenting that he has, indeed, found the near license plate holy grail.

Granted, this is a truck plate, but he's so, so, so very close, I'd say, "YAY!".

His words:

"P.S. I looked it up -- I was at the Union 76 station in Mountain View, at the corner of El Camino and Grant, when I spotted this beauty."

Come on, passenger car license plate holy grail!

The license plate Holy Grail!

Oh, so close! So very close!

When playing the license plate torture game, I thought the best license plate to see would be a non-vanity, 2 character license plate: one where all the numbers were the same, and all the letters were the same. Some would be better than others (5SSS555 and 2ZZZ222, for example), but even so, a 2 character plate would be awesome.

Well, I came close today.

While at lunch, Mike and I pulled up behind a mini-bus with a government license plate. The number was 1112212.

Now, technically, it satisfies the two characters requirement. But it's not a passenger car. So, I'll keep looking.

The closest passenger car I've seen was a 4MMK444.
