That always bothered me about Goldfinger. The bad guys are looking for Bond and they have a conversation that, I guess, goes like this:

Henchman #1: "Look, it's the highly-recognizable silver Aston Martin DB5 that was only just released so is extremely rare even in Britain, let alone here in Switzerland. That must be the car we're looking for!"

Henchman #2: "No, see: the license plate is wrong."

Henchman #1: "Oh, yeah. I guess that must be a DB4. They do look a lot alike. Never mind."

I've always wanted a license plate flipper. Good to know I can get an after-market one installed.

Should have just gone with the legal version to confuse the police.

A car that steals gas? It has a license plate flipper? The car contained burglary tools?

I pray that it had an oil slick dispenser and a smoke screen generator. That car sounds absolutely awesome and dedicated to a life of criming. The owners are dedicated criminals. Not that there is anything wrong with that. It's actually impressive. Fark the law.

Legal Eagle did a video about illegal car devices. The flipper was at about 13:58 in.

Hire an orphan* to live in your trunk, and release a food pellet each time you need them to reach out and swap the rear license plate.

If your state still requires front license plates, you might need to get them some magnetic boots too.

* Shop local, please!

Modern vehicle theft:

1) Steal a pickup truck or SUV

2) Extract the valuable gas from it

3) Throw away the useless vehicle

Just shows it is a great video. Two people saying watch the same video at the same time must mean it is good.

Saw some guy stealing a lawn mower out of a lawn guy's truck. The thief's tag could be instantly memorized by even the stupidest person. NO1LKME

Seriously, 10 years out and I still know it. The Cops were called and met the thief at his house.

Never seen a license plate flipper before?  Common!!!  They're like $50 on amazon...

Maybe a CSB...

Back in 1992 or so, my girlfriend at the time had a black 190E Benz. Her license plate was 3BAY333. It was not a personalized plate. One weekend day, I was driving my car with her to get some lunch, and we were looking for a place to park. We both saw a parked black 300E Benz with a license plate of 3BAY332. She almost had a heart attack.

End of CSB...

Used to have a 4 digit plate (daughter has it now, passed down from my mom and before her, my grandfather). Have seen [plate]+1 and [plate]-1. Also, the coolest plate ever: 666

Once, going to hike Monadnock in NH, passed a car goimg the other way with a NH plate with my initials.

Gas thefts are going to become more common folks. Brace yourselves.
