Automobile license plates have been around for exactly 100 years. They were invented by the inventor of the Model-T automobile, Henry Ford, with a little help from his 9-year-old niece, Francis "Panchita" Ford. Henry gives his niece credit for coming up with the concept of the numbers - he had the idea for the letters.
Some license plate slogans from the past include: Vermont - The Gateway To New Hampshire, Colorado - Take a Deep Breath - Yep, It's Pot, and Alabama's - We Play Hip Hop Music on Banjos.
