The LA area spawned the metallic metal band, so we guess it makes sense you'd find this here. Also yes, we'd have to agree — it's probably the most metal license plate we've yet to see out of LA, or any other area for that matter. At least until someone comes up with a MegadetH one. It's just too bad it's on a Passat. Somehow I think when Hetfield was going on about heading off to never-neverland, I don't think he was hoping for it to happen in a VW.
