After a prolonged bout with the DMV in Sacramento, I finally got my vehicle registered with the original black plates. It’s a long story involving repeat inspections, a letter to a dead guy, and unanswered phone calls. But all of that is behind us. A year after starting the process Sparkfire is registered! I was able to peel off the temporary tags and install my shiny black and gold plates. I went out and bought a set of license plate holders for the car as well. Vanity might be a bigger vice of mine than previously thought.
I made a front license plate bracket while working the midnight-8am shift last week. I took some stainless steel sheet cuttings and drilled a few holes. I even used some foam while mounting them so they don’t damage the re-chromed front bumper.
I need to get some work done on the car before she’s ready for the road again, but when she is, she’ll be driving in style. And even legal.
