Boot Stripes and License Plates
I added boot stripes to my MINI the other day. They carry over the bonnet stripes (on the hood) onto the tailgate. Looks pretty nice, if I do say so myself.
Of course, I'm good friends with the fellow who installed them.
Note the new license plate, too. This was ordered back in September, 2003, when I bought the car, but I wasn't allowed to actually get them until the tag came up for renewal this month. Curious thing about this: The license plate is actually B-L-U-C-zero-zero-P. Apparently, you can't buy a vanity plate in Georgia with the letter O on it. They always use the number zero. I guess that old wive's tale about buying license number 01OI01O (combination of zeros, oh's, one's and i's) to throw off the cops isn't worth a hoot if you live here!
