I've had my '24 touring for over 3 years now, but never noticed this. My car is a bit of a jalopy; rust holes, welds and patches. I was under the car today, laying on my back draining out old gas. While laying there, I look up and right in front of my face is this license plate patching the front fender to the running board. I wiped off some mud so I could read it and take a photo. Its a 1931 Maine plate, and obviously been there a long time. Adds a bit of character to the car I'd say.
"After all, what is your car but used parts."
Steve: Somewhere in Maine someone is looking for that plate to make up a pair for their car.
Do you have any prior knowledge that your car is from Maine?
Dave - no, I bought the car here in Virginia. I believe the previous owner bought it in Virginia also. Maybe I need to look more closely, the other plate may be under there too!
This car clearly needs to be broken down for a $100,000 restoration. This old rusty
stuff is totally unacceptable ! How will you win any cheesy plastic trophies ???
Good point Burger. I guess I'll have to make do with grins from old timers and small children!
