the continual car joins the chrysler high milers club

i was poking around the 'net looking for a posting i'd made on a public board when my original del sol turned 100,000 miles and stumbled across chrysler's high milers club.  i give them my name and VIN, they give me a pewter license plate bracket.  fair enough.

i filled out their online form early this AM and got this auto-reply before noon.

i don't care how dopey it is, i like it ... and you can think of this license bracket in one of three ways:
  • it's free
  • it merely cost me $41,000 (and gave me free use of a car for five years)
  • this is my prize for not completely gutting the continual car when i hit that piece of retread on I-15 at 80mph a few months ago
the frame uses both the word "chrysler" and the "pentastar" logo -- not surprising since it's making reference to the corporation that built these steeds of global degradation -- it's cool to be so old skool.  (of course that doesn't keep some of the dodge bigots on the forums from complaining ... for some reason some of those guys don't like to admit they drive chryslers ... i'll bet the bugatti people don't like to admit they're driving volkswagens either.)
