One year ago today, my parents got a package.
The next day, I was able to open the package. Inside were two plate frames for the dealership in North Carolina that my RAV4 was originally sold to. I wanted a new plate frame, but I wanted something unique to my car. I looked at the window sticker, reached out to Toyota of Sanford (now Fred Anderson), and they kindly sent me two plate frames free of charge. Though it’s very small, it’s a piece that means a lot to me. It isn’t a random plate frame or some overpriced school plate frame; it’s a clean look with a story.
One year and over 15,000 miles later, I still drive with Fred on the back.
