Show plates are amongst the most common must haves at major car shows to give proud car owners that extra reason to stand out. These show plates are like custom number plates, but may have a word on the plates, or even the cars make or model. Many choose to display their cars with show plates are car shows so people notice their cars and remember them due to what plates they had on the vehicles.
These show plates can be customised to the owners taste with different options like badges, text style, colours, backgrounds etc. Most cars at car shows or meets tend to be custom modified cars therefore the last thing on the list is the show plates to give custom car owners a reason to smile.
In most countries around the world, show plates are used for car shows, off road or in car showrooms due to their different range of options applied, such as pictures and colour of text. Many countries do not approve show plates for use on public roads as their style is not appropriate to be easily read and identified in lawful circumstances. Road going vehicles need to have dedicated registration numbers which are allocated to the specific vehicle.
