It's no secret that Arizona has one of the nation's highest levels of transplants, which means many people have short memories of Phoenix.
Below, find 10 signs that you've probably lived in Phoenix longer than most:
10.) Your sports gear is all very outdated
That includes a dark red Jake Plummer jersey, purple and turquoise Diamondbacks gear, and anything with the Coyotes kachina logo.
9.) You remember a time before the Light Rail
Or maybe you just survived what seemed like 100 years of Light Rail construction downtown. 8.) You remember when Arizonans elected a Democrat as governor
Napolitano left office just six years ago.
7.) Or maybe you remember when a governor was impeached
Way to go, Ev Mecham! 6.) You remember the "Phoenix Lights"
The time half of Phoenix thought aliens came for a UFO joyride across the city.
5.) You remember a time where you had to get to places without Loop 101 and Loop 202
Or at least part of them. 4.) You refer to events and venues that have long since been renamed
Bank One Ballpark, America West Arena, the FBR Open, and so on.
3.) You used to have a brown license plate
Bonus points for having the even older orange or yellow plates. 2.) You can remember a sheriff before Joe Arpaio
Tom Agnos was the last sheriff, who lost the election to Arpaio in 1992.
