I modified my car and really went too far this time...


It's pretty rare for me to let my interest in Tokusatsu seep out into the real-world. It's not that I'm ashamed or anything, I just hate having to answer questions. When I wear a shirt, I just want it to register as a shirt to someone...not start up a conversation. 

An example of this madness involves one of my favorite baseball caps. I've been shaving my head for awhile so I've accumulated many hats to ward off the skin cancer. My go-to is just a random baseball team. Phillies, Brewers, Cubs, Padres, you name it, I probably have it. Outside the random "Did you catch the game?" nobody really bothers me. 

Except for, unfortunately, my favorite hat... Montreal Expos. First off, everyone assumes I'm Canadian. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the notion, but that always leads to "Well......why the Expos hat??" when I make the correction. OR...when I was in Las Vegas I wore it for two days and the scammers were aggressively trying to get me to their strip clubs/timeshare meetings/cruise giveaways. I switched up to my Dodgers hat the next day and...not a damn soul bothered me.

So I did something totally wild that goes against everything I just said...

In my decades of driving I've never felt the need to swap out my government issued license plates for anything special. No special interest plates...no personalized plates... I don't know what possessed me, but I ended up looking into doing both. Thus began the long process of selecting my new plates.

A blank personalized plate has a seven-character limit. My top two choices that sadly weren't available were "YOKAI" and "PEGASUS", but I did actually have a bunch of options to skim through. Among which were...

"DRCLAW" 
"P440CPJ" (Plate from the legendary lost Mexican McLaren F1...it's resurgeance in popularity scared me away recently)
"SUBRZ"

There was one that stuck with me for about a month...and joy of joys, it was under five characters...which means I could choose from one of my State's special interest plates! Since I happen to be a big fan of the beach, my selection was a no-brainer.

So I was going with a "Shore to Please" (emphasis theirs) plate with personalization. What does it say...?


*nijiiro Crystal Sky intensifies*

I told you...I've gone too far with this!


I ordered this in January and almost three months later it finally arrived! I honestly almost forgot about it since I didn't get any kind of shipping notice from the State or anything. Heh.

If someone ever decides to recreate this card...please, please, please let me know. I will absolute take one!

Better than an F.O.P. card...!

I guess I can sum it up like this...

Ohres to Please

    Seriously, though, that's pretty cool. When you kept talking about this, I had no idea what it could have been. I was thinking it would be something Dairanger-related. (RK-01? That would be better for a motorcycle, I guess.)
