Show Notes

One man is to blame. Plus, vanity plates in the wild: IC A GR8 PL8.

Episode Guests: Author and used car salesman expert historian Steven M. Gelber; media historian Martin Gostanian; and license plate historian and ALPCA (Automobile License Plate Collectors Association) media manager, Jeff Minard.

Special thanks to callers Jamie and Elliott, the Elgin History Museum, Jim Muntz, Steven Parissien, and all the listeners who called in with vanity plate sightings. And a most unhinged thank you to the madman himself, the lil' corporal in a onesie: Earl Muntz.
