This is the part that confused me the most. Why wouldn't they just make the new owner get new plates? It's completely trivial.

Apparently you are not allowed to (supposed to?) keep the plates in CA. At first, I thought the new owner was using the plates illegally.

Costs some $

And it costs the seller money to get new plates for his new car. Somebody in the transaction will have to buy new plates.
