Classic license plate

    Saw one of these on the way to work today. Classic.

    Other favorites: Virginia's bicentennial plate, Saskatchewan's wheat-shock plate, the Wyoming buking horse (Steamboat) logo, the old blue "Keystone State" Pennsylvania plates with the outline of the state.

    I hate the way so many states have cluttered up their plates, it's impossible to tell what's what at a glance these days.

    Wheat, sky and Capitol building, though it's oh so simple. I love it.

    My father got a variation of our last name on a license plate in 1972. Cost $10. Now, it's around $85.

    Anyway, he still has that letter combination on his car. I have the original plates and they're on my classic car (in my state, you can have a license plate that matches the year of your car as long as the sticker - or, in my case, a metal tab - matches the year).

    I've always thought that was pretty sweet.
  6. Big fan of the old, black California license plate. First time I was out there, in '93, I saw many more than I expected. Still see at least three or four on every trip.

    Gotta love the lack of winter, thus the lack of salt on roads, thus the lack of something that ages cars before their times, thus enabling more old cars with those old plates to be on the road.

    I've always loved peaches, hence have always liked Georgia's plates. So I was curious how long the state has had the peach on the license plate. That photo was the closest thing I could find.

    Oh, and ...

    Movin to the country gonna eat a lot of peaches
    Im movin to the country Im gonna eat me a lot of peaches
    Im movin to the country Im gonna eat a lot of peaches
    Movin to the country Im gonna eat a lot of peaches
    Peaches come from a can they were put there by a man
    In a factory downtown
    If I had my little way Id eat peaches everyday

    I was speaking more to the Ritalin thing.

    Oh, and ...
    Millions of peaches, peaches for me
    Millions of peaches, peaches for free

    EDIT: Also, if I wanted to be forward, I'd quote Castor Troy and say, "I could eat a peach for hours."

    But I don't want to be forward.
