I'm in the middle of a trip to Sacramento, CA, and today I spotted a recent Range Rover that had CA Plates that had Gold (orange?) lettering on a black background. They looked to be recent plates.
I know that was the color combination of the CA plates decades ago (up until the 1960's?), but I was surprised to see them on a recent vehicle.
Is CA going back to Gold on Black plates?

Growing up in SoCal during the 60's the gold on black plates were the only plates issued. Some months back there was a poster that included a few pix of his ride that had the black/gold combo. I made mention of them in the thread and he confirmed that the California DMV was in fact re-issuing the black and gold plate. I really like them and he had them on his blackout 2016 sport. Really nice looking!!
