On this episode Kendra and Autumn touch on the history of license plates, specifically Pennsylvania porcelains! Did you know Pennsylvania had two leading porcelain license plate manufacturers?! You’ve got a friend in PA! *EDIT* Since airing this video we have discovered (thanks to our wonderful listeners) the meaning of the metal strip/stars. The silver strip indicates that this is a truck license plate. The stars represent how many tons the truck weighs. One star = one ton. You really DO learn something new every day.
