x-type you're correct... i haven't even thought about greece... absolutely none seen by me in croatia... like they aren't going north anywhere

btw... there is a nice amount of brand new cars registered to Vanuatu... avoiding tax or something...
but license plate is pretty awesome... black plate with four numbers and on left and right side are palm trees
it's only strange to see a croatian man exiting a car that suppose to be thousands of kilometers away

i have seen them, but really rarely (what is weird when we cinsider about A3/E70 as one of main routes that connect Greece with rest of Europe).

about those really exotic - i don't pay attention on them anymore because most of them are not originally from those countries, but owned by local ppl avoiding high taxes

Guys, you don't pay attention to license plates. I see plenty of odd plates. From Moldova, Belarus or Georgia, to Greece, Montenegro or Albania, and even Malta and Iceland.

PS: Hi!

Lucky you! For now I have ATI Radeon X1300, maybe I should start collecting cash for the GeForce GTX 280 and buy it till 18. November, because that should do it, if I want to run GTA IV on my PC!

I just drove the A1 motorway in the Netherlands from Apeldoorn to Almelo (about 50km).

Trucks: mostly non-Dutch, like German, Polish, Lithuanian, Estonian, Finnish, Norwegian, Belgian and Czech trucks.
Cars: Mostly Dutch, but there were some Germans.

What I have noticed in the last few months I barely see cars from Poland anymore. I used to see them all the time with seasonal workers. Apparantly, they aren't here anymore, perhaps returned to Poland?

Well, the difference in wage between the two countries definately decreased, so it doesn't make that much difference as it used to, I think.

hehe i wait for GTA too hehe... although i already played it on my friends PS3, but i can't get used to controllers...

btw, some magazines say 200 series isn't that much better than older GTX cards and they suck power like vacuum... friends talked me into buying this GTX+ that came few days ago, much cheaper than GTX and performances are negligible...

@Chris... maybe they bought dutch cars with your plates so you don't recognize them now infiltration starts from buying a new car

I saw a truck with strange license plates. Actually they were 2 trucks without a trailer, from the Scania factory in Zwolle, I'm searching where they were from, perhaps Austria, but the plates don't exactly match. I also saw a car from GBJ : the island of Jersey. You don't see those often.

The license plate I can't recognize had about 2 characters on the left, a flag, and about 4 characters on the right. The plate was light blue and the characters where faded light yellow. The flag was a striped flag with white and red (looks Austrian but the colors don't match). It were probably temporary plates. It didn't had a country code on it.

A bit like this Austrian one.

No, the flag was about the same (I don't remember the flag exactly) but the colors of the plates and letters don't match at all.

No, definatly not. As I said, the plate's background was faded blue and the letters were faded light yellow. The letter combination seems about right though. It didn't have a country code (like LV or A) in it.

light blue should be Austrian (i guess temporary), but they have white, not yellow characters

The color blue seems about right, but the flag was different, as well as the colors of the letters (light yellow). They were driving southbound on the A50 from the Scania factory, so that should rule out anything north of the Netherlands/Germany/Poland.
