Desperately seeking lost license plate for 20th century truck

tcr! · May 18, 2019 at 2:24 pm

It jumped off on a whim somewhere in the Fox Valley. Maybe in the Blue Goose parking lot. Maybe at the Geneva Public Library. Maybe on the corner by Water Street Studios. Who knows.

The last four confirmed digits are 1317 — see partial photo of rear plate below.

1317 license plate

The missing front plate is metal (not magnetic) with a white background, red lettering, and blue embossed numbers. Sadly, it does not respond to voice commands no matter how firm or how gentle your tone.

The STC police issued me one verbal warning last night and the officer confirmed a ticketed warning could be next. I’ve alerted Jessie White to no avail. After repeated attempts to contact him earlier this morning, all my calls are now being immediately directed to voicemail.

The reward for safe and prompt return of this license plate is one signed copy of my latest book — see attached photo of myself and said book below.

tcr! and the diaries for 2018 book

The diaries for 2018 book will be handsomely delivered to your personal front door, or your preferred rendezvous location.

I know I could simply get replacement plates but first I need an emissions check and then I need to go to the DMV. And my poor truck needs an oil change. And then to make matters completely worse, it’s raining and thundering right now. Or it was at least when I started writing this.

Until this matter is resolved, my truck and I will continue to live on the edge of the legal system. Per usual. I should probably print up flyers and hang them at Blue Goose, the Fox Valley libraries, and Water Street Studios.

Please help.

And yes, the book / plate swap is a real thing.

Did you check DMV website to see if you can get just the one? I thought you could…. And WHAT did you do to SC police to have them hot on your tail about this? There are plenty of cars around with just the rear plate, and although we’re supposed to …See More

I don’t really like going the DMV website. It’s callled cyberdrive.com and it makes me feel kinda weird inside and not in a good way. I’m not exactly sure why the police pulled me over last night. He said my pink taillights were kinda dim and then all I could think was “How would you know unless you’ve been checking out my backside when I wasn’t looking?!??!!”

I hope you and your license plate are happily reunited soon.

I hope you find your plate. But now I feel like I have to read your book!! If one is not holding your plate for ransom, how would they obtain a copy of the book pictured!? I feel like there needs to be a link to purchase.

I went to the DMV once. Never again.

The one in Aurora is pretty good. Plus you will be called to a different line. Easy

Will they have snacks? 🧀🤔

Always go to the one in Plano. No lines, no people and the woman behind the counter is friendly. After that you can stop at Rural King and get free popcorn and admire the chick(ens).

We had ours stolen off my husband’s car. We drove with a police report until Jesse White’s team got around to resolving the issue. Dirtbags…

Jessie White and his crack team are pretty badass. 👊🏴‍☠️
