Why Steve Jobs' SL 55 AMG Never Had a License Plate
text size: A- A+
The rumors according to which he paid fines on a regular basis, or had a special permit from the state of California to allow his car to be plateless all proved to be false. Jon Callas, who is CTO of Entrust and former Apple employee, Jobs actually found a loophole to exploit.
In an interview with ITWire, Callas revealed that the CEO used to switch his car every six month, as California laws stated that he wasn’t obliged to put a number plate on a new vehicle for that period of time. It’s interesting to think that Jobs switched his SL 55 AMG for the exact same one in the same color and sporting the same interior.
Editor’s note: All those SL should be worth something on eBay right now, shouldn’t they?!

19 states do not require a license plate on the front of a registered vehicle. Is your state one of them? If not, maybe you should contact your governor or local representative about it.
