Re: “Trivial Pursuits: The Strange Allure of Low-Numbered License Plates

Number 100 was the plate given to Harlan Sylvester by Gov. Dean. If he is still living, I would assume he's still got it. I read that in an article about him published in this paper in 2010. So, yes, plenty of special political folk get these plates, and those of us with a 3-digit plate have often wondered if politics would cause ours to be taken away as a gift to a governor's buddy or supporter. Jason Gibbs has a 3-digit that I guess Jim Douglas gave him (though he currently has a 2-digit cuz, you know, being on the 5th floor and all). Former Lamoille County Senator Susan Bartlett got one somehow. I would love to read a list of 3-digit plate owners just out of curiosity. We got ours the old fashioned way - passed down since maybe the 1920's when some great-great-someone was one of the first people in his community to have a car and VT maybe had fewer than 999 cars total. Silly though it is, I'm pretty fond of it. And it's sure easy to remember!
