    Don't know about you but for the last several months I have noticed a big increase in the temporary license plates on cars that you get when you buy a car. It is not necessarily new cars but just a lot of them. I think this is an indication that people are starting to spend money and even though lot of them are used cars it is a good sign for the economy.

    Another sign of better economic times is the frequency of seeing cars with one headlight seems to have diminished some too. People are spending money on replacing them. Still see too many of them but less.

    Of course with the increase of gas those trends may start to turn. The car buying might also be because the used car market has recovered from the junker campaign of a few years ago where all the junkers were scrapped.

    Also does it seem like there are a lot of license plates with TUF on them? When I see this I think there is a wimp, they have to put TUF on their plates to try and intimidate other drivers into thinking they are tough.
