4B4RTH Plate


After my plates came in the mail, and I was tagged as “BUB 558″, it was most definitely time to submit the application for a personalized plate.  In Iowa, it’s a $25 application process, then an additional $5/yr on top of your normal registration.  The form allows you to make up to 5 choices, and they’ll choose the first one that isn’t already taken, and isn’t something scandalous.

My choices in order were:
2) 4B4RTH
3) 5OO
4) 5OOA

After an arduous 3 weeks of uncertainly, the notice came in the mail. My plates were ready for pickup!  “ABARTH” was already taken, so I was issued “4B4RTH”. Much better than “BUB” :)

Less than 24 hrs since first setting eyes on the Abarth, the papers were being signed. Time to make room in the stable garage. Just two of us at home. 5 vehicles. Sounds about right :)

Here she is up at Saylorville her first night home.
