Who admits to having one or more license plates that are Thompson related. I do not have one, but I keep thinking I should.

What do they say?

Pictures (at the risk of blowing out bandwidth and memory)?

Will there be a "corral" at the Comfort Inn for the TCA Meeting in August for vehicles with Thompson plates? Would make a nice photo op, eh?

Now, if they would allow pictures on the plates that would be cool.

Imagine driving around with an image of a Thompson but only have different letters or numbers and stuff.

I have a plate that says "WEAPON"

The big question: were refering to a gun or the automobile? dry.gif

I've thought about doing a plate that says "28 TSMG" or "Chopper" but costs of vanity plates im Minnesota have stopped me (I'd rather buy an extra $60.00 in ammo!!) wink.gif
"Tommygun" would be neat BUT I don't really want to advertise!!

I have a machine that makes plastic license plates.

I may dig it up and try to make one.

Unfortunantly, all I have are Califonia plate blanks at this time. The mid '80s style with the setting sun at the top.

I know, I'll make one that say NOSMG4ME

Mine used to be SLNGLED, but some liberal a-hole complained to the DMV that it was offensive so it was revoked. Now it's LOCNLOD. biggrin.gif

I drive a 1986 Ford Mustang that has 387,000 miles on it. blink.gif

It's a good car, but a 302cid engine (5.0 litre) eats gasoline like crazy!

Every time I go anywhere, I need stop and get gas; so I got a license plate that says "OUTAGAS". laugh.gif

With gas prices going through the roof, everybody loves the plate. In fact a local newspaper took a picture of it and put it in the paper.

I would post a pic, but I don't know how.

I saw a show, it was about this guy not sure who he was.. anyway he had a Virginia plate that said GOVT SUX - and they revoked it after the fact because they said the plate is state property and technically he doesn't own the plate... dry.gif

Yes I must admit I have one. M.J. [my wife] thought it was a good Christmas gift . Those of you who know me know what it is . I like to look in the rear mirror when in traffic at the people as they try to firure out what it means. Look for it at the comfort inn in Aug.

I live in Mena, Arkansas

Its in the Southwest portion of the state inside the Ouachita National Forest. The next county over has no stoplights and is 85% Ouachita National Forest.

We are 100 miles North of Texarkana, 82 miles South of Fort Smith and 75 miles West of Hot Springs National Park. Have a look here to learn more http://www.arkcoprop.com/mena.htm
