Fan Plates

I have been a huge fan of the Rolling Stones for many years. For the past 11 years, my fondness for the band has been advertised on my first, second and now third Subaru on my license plates.

The last time the Stones came to Seattle, I had the opportunity to send one of my plates backstage, where it was autographed by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.

No longer on the front bumper, this one-of-a-kind license plate now resides in our living room for all to see.

Turning Heads

I was inspired by your last issue to send in pictures. I turn heads, too, especially when refusing an invitation to play tag on the road. The disappointed younger fellows want to see who is driving the WRX. Yes, it is an automatic. So what!

I was happy to find out that the plates I selected were available.

Not everyone has the good fortune to have a perfect friend and soul mate or an enduring term to help recall all the good things that have happened during one's lifetime. Mine is the term "Sweetie Pie," which came easily to refer to my wife of 57 years.

During the winter of 1951-52, I flew 100 combat missions over North Korea in my RF-51 Mustang named "Sweetie Pie." It seemed to me only proper to consider the term for our personalized license plates for our 2003 Subaru Impreza Outback.
