Steve Jobs would regularly park his Mercedes in
a handicap spot on Apple's campus.

Steve Jobs drove a silver Mercedes SL55 AMG. He leased it and never had a license plate. He obviously didn't want to display a "'handicapped license." Reportedly many employees and regulars in Palo Alto knew it was his car. He never was confronted by the police or applied for a special permit. He kept the seriousness of his illness as confidential as he could.

"Steve (or someone close to him) spotted a loophole in the California vehicle laws. Anyone with a brand new car had a maximum of six months to affix the issued number plate to the vehicle.

"So Jobs made an arrangement with the leasing company; he would always change cars during the sixth month of the lease, exchanging one silver Mercedes SL55 AMG for another identical one. At no time would he ever be in a car as old as six months; and thus there was no legal requirement to have the number plates fitted.

"One might also assume that the leasing company was happy - they had an endless supply of luxury cars to on-sell with the previous driver being none-other that Steve Jobs.

"That would be a win-win-win situation for Steve, the leasing company and for the subsequent buyer."
