Default What are the most common out-of-state license plates in your part of the state?

This is a spin-off from an earlier thread about the Illinois plates in Indy.

I know much of this is obviously regional, but the abundance of highways and Indiana's relatively small size makes the differences interesting. When I lived in Fort Wayne, there were lots of Ohio and Michigan plates, but hardly any Illinois plates. Just 100 miles away, Indy also has lots of Ohio and Michigan plates, but way more Illinois plates.

Ohio and Kentucky here in Columbus. I see many of these plates in the parking lot at Brown County State Park on the weekends. Probably have discovered our great mountain bike trails.

In Valparaiso, there are a ton of IL plates and to a lesser extent MI plates. This obviously has a lot to do with geographic location and a burgeoning CHI metro area. I also see a good number of Texas plates, oddly enough.

In Munster (seeing as it is right on the IN/IL border) there are a lot of Illinois plates. Also, many people have company cars with IL plates. However, I also see a good amount of Michigan and some Wisconsin plates as well (being right off of 80/94).

In South bend I see lots of Illinois plates and lately alot more California plates. The CA plates I usually guess are Notre Dame students.

I have a good friend from the Bay Area who went to ND for law school. She said she could drive I-80 in her sleep.
