But seriously, a big thank you to Highlander-MT tax evasion LLC. Mazda still rusty. A while back he posted about replacing his plates. I may have mentioned here before that I collect license plates, and when I saw that post I asked not-very-seriously if I could have one of the old ones.

Long story short, yesterday I found a sweet Montana plate in my mailbox!

A lot of these have a story, like the Tasmania plate my sister found on the roadside, then carried for a 10 mile hike (in Tasmania) for me. Or the Italian one that a friend ripped off a parked car while drunk (I wasn’t there). Many are from cars I’ve had, or from friends. I still have more I need to put up - especially now this new Montana plate! - but need to find a new place to expand into.

Anyway. Thanks again!
