Tag Time

Is was time to renew license plated and we had to change this year, I changed my plate from my last name to something a little more obscure ....unless you are a Boxster fan....plus a portion goes to help save the Saturn V the most powerful machine ever made by man.....and engineered and developed 60 miles from where I live.

Obviously you missed the thread about blurring out your plate... Hide your kids, hide your wife, hide your dog!

Sweet plate, bro!

Naw, they did away with ages ago. We had guy that lived in my town that had a custom plate in the 70's that said "EX CIA" or something. I was just a kid but knew him socially. He wasn't kidding, the local FBI agent was a friend of my parents and confirmed it. The retired agent went back to Panama just before we invaded to arrest Noriega. I do think he never really retired.

It's unfortunate that there is no more political will for space exploration.

Ohio for the birthplace of the Wright Brothers, essentially, birthplace of modern aviation.
North Carolina for being the location of the first successful manned flight in Kitty Hawk.

I think.

It was a thread, try search. Promised I wouldn't bring that up anymore. Mark (owner, Pelican parts and this site) is a good guy and asked directly.

It went there......
