Where did that flying number plate come from? This is a Nu Image production filmed in Bulgaria, and there's a bad Nu Image film (US Seals) where a car crashes and its fake Albanian plate falls off to reveal a real Bulgarian plate behind it. I wonder if the same thing happens in this film. :)

Seen a little later, in a scene which was made before I guess:

Thanks for the captures. You'd think they'd learn not to put one plate on top of another. :)

I wonder why they did that. It is so easy to remove the original plate, easier to replace a place than add a second one... :D

Perhaps they used Velcro or something, so that they could just stick the plate on and take it off again at the end of the day, and out of habit they did the same with all their cars, even ones that were going to be smashed up.

I once walked past a car being used in a film shoot and, yes, it had prop plates on top of the real ones. So perhaps everyone does it. :)

@Gag: the plate is (shall be) Russian (what town is "47"), but it was filmed in Bulgaria. To identify by the Wartburg
/vehicle_22547-Wartburg-353W-1975.html , because GDR-cars were never available in the Soviet Union (and after 1990 the Russian have bought "real" (Western) cars and not that GDR-junk.

Yeah. I think leaving them on prevents the prop guys from getting the plates lost or mixed up while filming. Plus, using paste or glue is easier, especially if you have to do a bunch of cars.
