How Steve Jobs Drove Without License Plates

Apparently, it was common knowledge amongst Steve Jobs enthusiasts that for years he drove without ever having license plates for his car.  Instead, what you did find was a very small bar code in place of where the rear plate would normally go.  Mr. Jobs felt that by not having a license plate, it afforded him some extra privacy, but in fact, the practice became somewhat of a trademark for his vehicles.  This of course led to rumors of Job's holding special privileges with the State of California when he continued the practice anyway.

So how did he do it?  By taking advantage of a provision in the law that allows automobile owners in the State of California up to six months grace period before retaining plates on their vehicle and so Mr. Jobs made sure that his leased Mercedes where traded in every six months.
