This is probably OT....

I was just driving back from Lee Valley in Waterloo. Passed a black Lincoln MKZ on 85 with license plate “GUITARS”. Is that one of you guys?

Couldn’t get a pic, I was driving. Thought about following, but I noticed it was a lady driving and that’s a creepy thing for a middle-age married guy to do......

That would have been bought long ago I assume. The owner of Don't Fret in Waterdown and Burlington had GITRZ as I recall on his vehicle.

Tried to google an example.
The only thing that pops up are guitars made of plates.
Mostly cigbox.

If anyone ever wants to do a 'plate' project,
I have a box full of 70's truck plates.

They make excellent bass drum stompers...a mag pickup underneath and some experimenting with capacitors.....

I may have seen that same vehicle during my band commute. It has jogged my memory but that's it :(

That would have to be an older plate in order to get it without a goofy alternate config. Although, "GUITARS is 7 characters, and for a very long time, Ontario would only allow 6. I think it was late 90's they started it....

Pretty cool, whoever you are!

Cool plates.

On a trip east a few years ago we saw American state (I forget which) plates with ROUTE66 (the actual lettering might have varied). I thought at first they might be novelty plates except there weren't others.

I've seen "Tele 1" or something like that around too. On my way to Toronto for tour I saw "JCM 800" but the dude driving it was dressed business casual :(.

I usually see the best plates when I'm driving and therefore unable to get a pic.
