Well, it is as good as finished. All it will take is Jennifer Granholm's signature to put the final nail in the coffin of the blue license plate that has been a Michigan standard for the past 25 years. I wrote about the possibility of this happening back in March. I will sadly have to retire my very first license plate in 2007. Sure, the paint is scratched and pealing off. There is rust around the edges and the once vibrant blue is now dulled by the years.
I will not just throw it away when the forced retirement comes. I'll probably nail it up to the wall in my woodshop. That plate has seen a lot of miles and milestones. You can't just pitch something that weighted down with fond memories.
