Mississippi may soon have the coolest license plate in the country.
The Elvis Presley Fan Club in Tupelo, Miss., Presley’s birthplace, last year lobbied the Mississippi Legislature to offer a specialty Elvis plate to state residents, according to the Associated Press. The club must now collect 300 applications to make it happen (120 have already been gathered).
Imagine how the plate will look on someone’s pink ’56 Caddy.
Fan club members hope sales of the plate featuring Elvis in concert in the ’50s will help pay for a youth center in Tupelo that Presley envisioned more than 50 years ago.
The plate featuring the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll will be one of dozens available in Mississippi, pending approval by the state tax commission.
Hmmm, maybe Washington State should offer a Jimi Hendrix or Nirvana license plate. Or shucks, even Bing Crosby.
