License Plate of the Day

As previously documented here, I see an insane amount of vanity license plates on a daily basis.  Since I first wrote about them, it seems that I’ve become hyper-aware of them, and I can’t stop noticing them in traffic, in parking lots, even in my own neighborhood.  While this is probably at least partly an unhealthy compulsion on my part, it is a documented fact that my home state does indeed have more vanity plates than any other state in America.  At least as of 2007 when this article was published: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21742618/.  So I’m not completely crazy for feeling like vanity plates are taking over the world, or at the least the roads of northern Virginia.  I may be kind of crazy for photographing and cataloguing them, but let’s give it a go anyways.

Car dealerships are always so helpful.

Don’t you hate it when your car is getting serviced or repaired and you’re driving a rental and you’re going home for the day or leaving the mall or whatever and you get to the parking lot and you can’t find your car to save your life?  Holy fuck, someone stole your car!  Except your car is kind of shitty, definitely not worth stealing.  This doesn’t make sense, but where is it?  Oh, right.  You’re looking for YOUR car, but you’re driving a rental.  You don’t have to file a police report now and that’s great except you can’t remember for the life of you what kind of car the rental is.  You had better hope the rental car has that honing device/ beeping-keyless-entry feature.  Turns out the  good folks over at Lindsay Chevrolet have solved that problem for you.  Now if only they could find a way to fix your car so it stays fixed…
