Happy Holidays folks! What a better way to kick off the holidays here at On Screen Cars with a little bit of License Plate Spotting. Over the next few posts we'll be bringing you clippings from your favorite holiday tv and movie cars. You'll be sure to impress your friends with your new found trivia thanks to OnScreenCars.com! To kick us off I've decided to start with National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation! T3H-762 - Ah the old front-wheel drive sleigh. A fan of John Hughes movies would know that often his movies feature cars with license plates that reference other films he wrote. For example the car the main character's mom drove in Ferris Bueller's Day Off had a license plate that read "VCTN" for National Lampoon's Vacation. T3H-762 - Though I can't make any connections with this plate. Let try this. Nothing interesting. 597-8D4 - "Clark! I don't want to spend the Holidays dead!" How about this one? Nota. 597-8D4 - However Google found that it's an html color hex code (#5978D4 for you nerds like me) for the a nice shade of blue. What redneck truck would be complete without those mud-flap nudes? That's some classy stuff! I can't seem to find a license plate number for Eddy's RV. If anyone comes across it let me know what part of the movie it's in and I'll snag it! My friend Branden pointed out that knowing Eddy owned the RV more than likely it doesn't have tags. If you think of any wild connections please email us through our contact page. We'll see ya later this week with another holiday tag. Merry Christmas and remember keep your tank pump'd out! Would like to thank the folks over at ACME License Plate Maker for creating this awesome tool for making license plate images.
