Just curious... what is the purpose of putting a Hong Kong plate on a vehicle in Iowa?

Well, that's just you opinion and that is my personal preference. That licence plate number belong to a car I grow up with and that's where I come from. I have a dream to drive around the world and collect a licence plate each country I visit, well that just a dream.

Re: Got it detailed and put a front Hong Kong licence plate on it.

Looks like he attached them with double stick tape so he can remove them with no damage once he gets over it. Not something I would do as they would be gone by the time I got out of the mall!

Gone? More likely graffiti sprayed all over it! LOL!

And there's nothing wrong with that.

Collecting old license plates from previously owned cars is something I picked up on from my grandfather as he did the same thing. I have mine in the garage while my grandfather had his hanging in his basement man cave (though they weren't called that back then ).

As others have alluded to though, just take resale value into account when hanging the plates on your current vehicle so be sure to use a method that isn't destructive.

I sticked those licence plate using double-side mounting tape provided by the licence plate maker. Those are the tape they use in Hong Kong to stick licence plate on car. It is strong enough to hold the licence plate but it won't do any damage on the car.
