For those that don't know, I am the very proud owner of a 2011 Ford Fiesta SES. Not a muscle car, I won't be winning any drag races with it, but I love my little rocket. Plus Tanner Foust and Ken Block both drive them (albeit highly modified versions). I adore it, probably more than any other car or truck I have ever owned.
The car was dubbed The Cricket, because it is little and green. A car with as much presence as this one demanded custom plates. I did not want to use "Cricket" because then people might think I was advertising for the wireless company of the same name, so what to do?
As I sat listening to the myriad insects that call Nebraska home and make a lot of noise in the evenings in the spring and summer, I heard the crickets. Chirp-chirp. Chirp-chirp. PERFECT! Too long, but PERFECT! After playing with some variations, I arrived at CHR CHRP.
Some money and some waiting later (them more waiting for a day when I had TIME to go to the DMV) The Cricket has awesome plates! And oddly enough, this is almost exactly the sound the tires make when I try to go toe-to-to with my friend's Mustang. So good choice all around.
So... Who else has custom plates?
