Looks fantastic Bryan, must get quite a reaction when people see it. I'm sure you are triggering many other peoples memories as well!

When will we be able to put it in the Another movie sighting line just above?? That would be too sweet. I think I only remember one person on this site to own a car with screen time.

Maybe, just maybe, that new plate will prevent subie confusion! Not surprised it wasn't already taken..

As always, Bryan - PROPS !
You have been fortunate to realize the dream that so many of us have had.
Love the plate!
Thanks for the new photos.

It turns out, (and you may want to sit down for this news) there aren't that many Tercel fans out there who went looking for a Tercel license plate! ;-)
