Random XJ encounter

I spotted a film crew working in Griffith Park this evening. I have no idea if they were shooting a movie, TV show, commercial, or something else. Whatever it was, it involved this XJ.

It's not unusual if the manufacturer isn't paying for product placement.

Re: Random XJ encounter

Anyone else think it's interesting that there's no smog history for that plate?

Re: Random XJ encounter

Could simply be from an area where smog is not required. If you get away from the cities there are still areas that don't require jumping through that hoop.

As if that could be anything other that a Jeep.

That's because it's not a real plate, the movie/tv industry has a bunch of fake plates that aren't in the system.

Quote:
GAT, like SAM and FAN, is a three-letter combination not used by the California Department of Motor Vehicles. In addition, the California Department of Motor Vehicles does not use the letter "I", "O", or "Q" in the first or third position of the three-letter combination.[2] However, prop California license plates seen in television shows and movies frequently do.
