    Is anyone interested in tracking the Mule Sightings by License Plate number? With some careful examination, we should be able to get a rough count of the total number of mules on the road. Each one has a unique license plate. 63277 is the Tesla Manufactuer ID, but the small vertically oriented letters are unique per vehicle. Shall we track them? I'll start.

    Those MFR plates get swapped between vehicles. You could easily get a mis-count trying to use them to track. To be more sure, you would have to look for a VIN on the vehicle. Not possible from random camera photos at a distance.

    Ahh. I didn't know that. Well then, I guess it's not a good idea. Oh well. :)

    Some do have numbers on the back. I believe the most recent that we saw was 55.

    Sometimes they put a car # in the back window like this:

    Yes, I think we've seen the likes of (don't quite me exactly) 34, 55, 65, 66 in the rear corner window of recent troll sightings. There have been more too.
