MY DEBT

Tom Treml feels the same way about his vehicles. He has MY DEBT on three different types of vehicles. He has it on his blue Lincoln, on his red Chevy Truck and on his black Honda motorcycle. In the state of Illinois, the same license can be used for each different class of license. Tom happens to own one of each of three classes of vehicles.

Tom said he thought of his vanity plate(s) back when he was in high school in 1978. He wanted something that would be good for any vehicle he chose to drive. He started paging through the dictionary looking for words or combinations of words that would fill the then six letter limit. When he got to the D's he knew he had what he was looking for. He wrote to me that eleven years after receiving his first MY DEBT plate, he was delighted to receive both a B Truck Plate and a Motorcycle Plate with MY DEBT on them.

He wrote that he gets a lot of positive response, but some people just don't get it. Interesting things have happened because of his vanity plates, though. He was sitting in traffic one day waiting to pay a toll. He looked in the rear view mirror and saw a woman mouthing the words "MY DEBT" to her passenger. Just then she rear-ended him. Another time, on the way to work he stopped at a convenience store. The clerk at the counter noticed his plate and said, "'MY DEBT', I should have that on my house". Tom's response was that a house is an asset, and as far as he knows you still don't need a license plate for your house.
