The Great British Columbia License Plates Runs!

This section of the web site is an attempt to pay homage to some of the more impressive plate runs that collectors have been able to piece together through dedication, commitment, and sometimes a lifetime of perseverance. A "run" can consist of anything from possessing the same number from many different years, to the piecing together of sequential series (i.e. numbers 1-100, or letter prefixes from A-Z). The links that have been provided below will simply take you to a Gallery highlighting that specific run. Enjoy!
Do you have your own run that you would like to see pictured here? If so, please drop me a line!
