This California license plate came through the museum on its way to a collector in Sweden. I get many items in that are unusual and rare but this was the first processor relates plate I have seen. The best part? It came with some history.
It was ordered as a vanity plate by a salesman at Intel around 1995. He was later hired by AMD as a sales person but his car still said “Pentium” which obviously was a bit of a problem. As a token of commitment to his new company he gave it to his manager at AMD, despite the fact that he was offered $3000 for it from an employee at Intel. It likely sat on a desk for some time until it was sold on eBay (for the low price of $100) where it was spotted by a collector in Sweden who asked me to purchase it for him.
It now resides with the collection of CPU Collection.SE
