Random Questions


Recommended Posts

Every now and then something odd really intrigues me. I'm sure you do the same.. Anyway here are my questions - does anyone know the answers, or willing to guess?

1. Why are the sidewalls on F1 cars and other race cars high-profiled?

2. Why do some Japanese numberplates have a big diagonal red line through them?

Feel free to add your own questions if anything's been on your mind recently :)

2. Why do some Japanese numberplates have a big diagonal red line through them?

Hi Lachlan,

They are what we ( in the UK at least ) call "Trade Plates". I'm sure you must have a similar system in Australia.

A car dealer or repair shop will put them on a car temporarily so that they can transport it to and from a place of sale, repair or testing. They are only supposed to be used in a very limited way, but some car dealers use them to take their untested / unplated cars to shows or events. Thats why you sometimes see them on cars in photos.

Hope that helps to explain it.

Cheers,

Alan T.
