Great story, Jay!Here's mine. They are California vanity plates issued back in the blue plate era. There's a nice story to how I got them:
When I bought my Coupe in '89 (yes, from a dealer in Berkeley) it came with 7 digit blue plates - clearly not the plates that were issued when it was first registered in 1970. I never gave much thought to replacing them with vanity plates and the correct 6 digit plates were not yet covered by the YOM program. Murray Fowler called me out of the blue, saying that he had this set of blue plates from a car he was selling to an out-of-state owner. The new owner had no use for California plates and since Murray knew I had a 2800 CS, he thought I might like them. I'm not that into vanity plates, but I like these because they remind me of Murray.
The graphic designer in me wants to redesign the letterforms on Ohio plates, anyway. The serifs on the "I" are too wide, and the "T" is too narrow. And don't get me started on their "D" (not shown), which reads like an "O". Punctuation would help, but a little mystery never hurt.Well, you need a piece of electrician's tape to punctuate it into IT'S A 74
