My pix were not resized. I use an app that has settings for very low-data resolution photos ("Open Camera"). It is great for EM-ready snaps.

That is a green stripe on the lip, but not pin-stripe decal. It is forest green spray-paint.

A couple years ago Cali reissued the classic 1960s plate type after a statewide vote. It costs $70 extra annually (4 weeks of my fuel savings, depending on gas prices--or about seven days of my depreciation savings). I like the plates because they atr usually only on high-end cars. It is my way of subtly sending a message that this is no ordinary beater, without resorting to bumper stickers, which I dislike because they are too limited by being too literal almost all the time. I am sure the subtle message is lost on most people who view my car. But every now and then, the plates draw questions and wondering like this. It's "mysterious"! lol

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
