• Given that the car's in the great regulatory empire of California, it's only common sense not to advertise oneself to the authorities if (a) the car's not registered or not currently insured (b) subject to smog laws (effectively 1976 or later, but legally 1966 and later) and modified in such a way that it's not going to pass a visual (c) probably a dozen other reasons to keep one's identifying information out of a public forum that's probably going to be archived forever somewhere.

  • Mind you, the number of Toyota Crowns still in the CA DMV system is probably such that it'd take less time for some functionary to ID the car than it's taking me to type this.
