That would be the plate that melted in the fire.
That would be the plate that who the fck knows where it is and whether it might have fallen off the salvage truck, been forgotten in the impound yard, etc...
He is also just getting over two separate bouts of dengue fever, the second of which damn near took him out for good.
If it wasn't for bad luck...
Now, back to the thread.
Can he not get a new plate from the DMV. Saying the other was destroyed, or lost. Then turn in the new plate..
