Do your vehicles get pushed around everywhere like the real 4014 ? ;-)

Many years ago here in Santiago, Chile  I saw an elderly Toyota with SP 4449  plates.   I followed the lady and ended up asking her if she would consider selling her plates to me.   No problem but then I found out plates always stay with the car right into the scrapyard.  Cannot be transferred to another car,  so that was that.  I should have kept in touch with her and maybe bought the car to get the plates,  even if just for my wall at home.  Now we have a new system with four letters and two numbers and the newest cars are getting plates starting with SP.   Too bad they don't have vanity plates here.
