Not sure if it is actually an Italian plate on the little Ford Focus that a serviceman or NATO member is driving around with in the US. The plate just looked out of place as I have not seen one before and tried to find some info on it. It was outside Mexican Villa (Great Salsa) in Springfield, MO of all places. I found this article talking about AFI plates a bit. Not sure if it is the same or not.
Maybe someone out there has more insight on these plates and if the one shown is actually an Italian plate.
