I know I have at least two family members who have always been quite fascinated by license plates, and I think they will like this post ;-) Personally I think the South African license plates are the coolest ever. So I grabbed my camera and snapped a few photos!
The first one is from the Eastern Cape. I like this one because it has an elephant in the background:
Here's one from the Free State, which has a Cheetah on it:
Here's one from the Limpopo province:
Here's one from the busy Gauteng province:
Here's one from Northern Cape with the springbok animal:
Unfortunately the license plates in the Western Cape have no cool background, they're just plain white. You can choose your own number/text though, like this guy did (Bergnoi is probably his/her last name):
