BDR529: Do you know the meaning of the Bluesmobile license plate?

Yes, there's a meaning behind the BDR529 license plate of the Bluesmobile in 1980's The Blues Brothers. Why? Because no John Landis movie lets the little details go unaccounted.

If you check, you get this explanation:

"The letters and numbers in the license plate refer to a bike club in Dan Aykroyd's home turf of Toronto, the 'Black Diamond Riders.' The clubhouse was located at that city's 529 Jarvis Street."

And yes, oddly enough, you can buy T-shirts with the license plate numbers.
