A Little Quail-Themed Flair for Your Ride
One of America’s favorite pastimes, it seems, is festooning our vehicles with what Office Spacecreator Mike Judge called “pieces of flair.” Big stickers, little stickers, funny stickers, serious stickers, tacky stickers; no matter your personality or worldview, there’s a decal, sticker or personalized tag with which to proclaim to the world what you’re all about.
Personally, I’m not too big on pieces of vehicle flair (other than group affiliations like Quail Forever) and the ones I do have are generally low-key and understated, but I have to admit I really want this. It’s a special license plate issued by the state of Oklahoma to help fund wildlife programs. The state of Georgia has a similar plate program.
Besides being a darned handsome license plate, the $38 dollar initial cost and $36.50 annual renewal fee goes straight into the state’s wildlife conservation work. You can even customize (within the five-character limit) what you want it to say. It’s the best of both worlds: you get one of those IM2COOL-esque vanity plates, but with a guilt-free social consciousness.
Sounds like a win-win to me. Only problem is, I’m having trouble trying to decide what I want to say in five characters. QUAIL? MRBOB? POINT? WHOA?
