That was a great idea. I made my own out of plexiglass and 3M colored
marking tapes. It was designed to look like a real plate to anyone who
didn't look at any of the details, then it was made to be a joke.
Instead of "California" it said "Constitution"; instead of Feb(ruary) it
had Fab(ulous). The big letters were FREE2B. It was so good it got
parking tickets made out to it and left on the windshield!
