Nebraska Theme License Plates
HSKERS Nebraska and CHGO4NE Illinois
Max, here's my two plates.
My dear wife, a native Chicagoan ignorant of all college football before we
met, surprised me for Christmas one year with these Illinois plates. I then
took her to the '98 Texas game when the 47 home game winning streak was broken
and the '99 loss in Austin decided on a series of untimely UN fumbles in a season
full of them. Apparently my post-game moods weren't pleasant, because on the
way home from the latter she announced that I could attend with my buddies any
game I desired as long as she never had to go again. I loved her even more after
I'm looking forward to much shorter road trips around the new conference.
The Nebraska-issued plate was needed because my '85 CJ7 couldn't pass the mandatory
Illinois smog test before plates can be issued here. Somewhere around the house
I've got a couple older versions with Callahan's AND Cosgrove's autographs on
them; really enhanced their value!
Great work, Robert
