I was browsing on imgur looking at Audi photos and came across this RS2:

What got my attention was: the location; USA/Canada? Never sold there, and not legal. Dutch plates that don't match the age of the car. YZ is 1990... What is going on here?

YZ-22-KN is a 1991 Ford Escort CLX say my sources lol.

My guess is he imported it to America and as he isn't required to have front plate as per law (look at the Toyota back there) he can just put whatever he wants in front (people that do Munich M delivery for their BMW M cars leave their german front tourist plates on when back @USA), so he went on ebay and got an old plate to put on "because it looked cool"

That's my guess

Yep, in certain states of the USA you are not required to have a front license plate. The car behind the Audi doesn't have a front license plate.
You can put whatever numberplate you want on the front, from any country in the world! Not sure why that Audi wouldn't be legal in the states tho...

Even that is weird, because YZ is 1990: 1990 license plates XZ, YB, YD, YF, YG, YH, YJ, YK, YL, YN, YP, YR, YS, YT, YV, YX, YY, YZ, ZB

Federal 25-year-old vehicle importation rule, which exempts such cars from pollution and safety requirements. So this year they may import one.

This photo doesn't add up in any way...

I assume model year 1991 so might be a 1990 registration anyway
