in just one week, chrysler has responded to my request for a 100,000 mile club license plate bracket.

with $6 worth of postage, there are three items in the envelope:

the bracket

a letter

Dear b1,

We are delighted to learn of your satisfaction* with your 2008 PT Cruiser!  Thank you for sharing your experience.

It's quite a milestone to watch your odometer roll over to 102,000 miles and to share our appreciation we have enclosed a 100,000 mile license plate bracket for your vehicle.  Chrysler Group LLC want to honor you and your vehicle for this achievement and wish you many more safe and pleasurable driving miles.



Senior Staff

*(i actually didn't mention anything about my satisfaction in my request for the bracket, but this isn't the first time someone associated with chrysler has put words in my mouth, nor the second.)

and a propaganda sheet from the manufacturer of the bracket
"olde country reproductions."  their leaflet includes a description of their nearly unbelievable non-toxic alloy, "pewtarex."  i'm sure you are both as relieved and amazed as i am that to know that pewtarex can be used not only for purely decorative purposes (ala, say, a license plate bracket?), but also is "perfectly safe, durable, and attractive for food and drink service."

just how will my brother -- with his 300,000 mile (and commemorative bracket-less) ford -- feel when i serve him nachos and wine on my club bracket when we celebrate this remarkable achievement?

safe.  that's how.

seriously, though, thank you for the gift, chrysler.
