So, last week, I was able to do something that should have been done 5 years and 4 months ago...put my specialized, personalized, Renelle-icized license plates on my awesome car. When I traded in my super-rad Ford Escort (*sniff, sniff*), I, of course, took my plates off before I handed her in. BUT, I never put them on my sparkly, shiny new car (back then). So, after searching and wondering where they have been all these years, Mike was able to find them hidden away in his garage and he handed them back over to me! :) I promptly made an appointment at the dreaded DMV to see if I could still use these plates. I did NOT know that you are required to pay a fee just to "hang on" to or "retain" them, if you will, and you also have to pay a fee to "reassign" them to your new car. Needless to say, after two trips to the DMV, sitting next to people that were super-weird in the DMV, waiting in lines, and well over $150 to get these bad boys back in action...I was successful and they went on as soon as I drove home and was able to get my hands on a screwdriver. :) Here's a pic...
Yay for my uubercool plates! Thought I'd share my happiness with ya! :0)
