Paula Skier reports on the mystery of Steve Jobs’ plateless car.
“I’d like to share something about Steve Jobs that you might not know. It’s about his car. Since automotive marketing is what we do here at Polk, I thought it was a relevant tidbit to share. Mr. Jobs drove a silver 2007 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG without a license plate.
Why? Nobody knows for sure, and multiple theories have been bandied about in Silicon Valley. Some think it’s a high-tech vehicle code distortion field or custom-built mechanized plate retractor. Others insist that overzealous fans swipe the roadster’s tags every time they’re mounted.”
Or, was Steve Jobs not concerned with government demands to do this or that?
Robert Wenzel asks if Steve Jobs hated the state.
