    Am I the only one that heard the Metal Gear ALERT noise when clicking on this thread ?

    (ear rape warning - loud at times)


    To the OP: It's probably just tourists.

    Got some in town here too and the only thing I can figure is it's the trickle down affect from Vermont . We are only 4 or 5 miles for the border

    They are all over Maine too!! Don't recall seeing that many in over 23 years there.

    I hope the bastards aren't thinking of relocating.

    Had a couple in my neighborhood that were renting for the summer because they had summer intern jobs in the area. Some move here and never change their plates over to MA.

    NY state pop is like 17M I think, MA is 6.

    Glad they are here, increasing our revenues. Though it was better last summer when the Sox were winning....

    They are Uber and Lyft cars. It seemed like overnight they all showed up in Philly. I asked the driver and he said it was a program where you drive their cars and its free if you make enough rides per month.

    Nothing out of the ordinary, but I am often puzzled by why I see so many out of state plates up here in NH away from tourist areas. Usually NY and CT, lots of them. I could understand if I was in the white mountains, or along the beaches, but... why do so many people from CT or NY decide they need to drive several hours away, to arrive in something like Fitzwilliam, or Lempster, or Surry or something like that. LOTS of them, all year.

    Meanwhile, if I drive to CT or NY, the number of NH plates I will is zero. Completely, absolutely, zero. We in NH know those states suck and don't ever want to go there. But please, if you visit here, leave your suck down in those states.

    This. Had a rental car for a week that had NY plates. Got the finger multiple times a day while driving. A cop on a road detail was busy talking on his phone and I gave him a look. Yelled at me to go back to New York.
    I couldn’t wait to get rid of that car......

    Funny you all should mention this. They are all over western ma too. Just the retro-new ugly gold colored ones though.
    Thought it was so weird I mentioned it to my wife, she was like yea what's up with that?

    I think its ANTIFA scoping us all out for the coming Civil War......at least I hope it is.

    No idea. They can freely see their way back towards Albany though. I will count the number of plates I see.
