Alabama License Plates Inadvertently Honor Cam

I heard a rumor a few weeks ago of University of Alabama license plates being spotted around the state that included the letters ‘CAM’ at the beginning. Now, thanks to @WillCollier, we have photographical evidence of quite possibly the most ironic happening in human existence.

Keep in mind that these are not custom tags. These are just normal, state-issued tags where the owner of the car pays $50 to go to the school. For the person whose tag appears above, and the other 999 people who get a tag with ‘CAM’ at the front, their generosity to the school is rewarded by driving around with the name of arguably the best player in Auburn history bolted to their car. I’m sure they are thrilled.

Now there’s irony, and there’s IRONY. And to think, this whole time I thought they called it the Iron Bowl because of the Birmingham Iron industry…

It only costs $50 to go to Alabama? That explains a lot

Literally laughing out loud.

The Bammer who gets “CAM240” wins the internet.

Even funner to have one that has CAM2724

I’m looking forward to seeing one of these on the road.

Or CAM150.

The Bammer that gets CAM180 will probably try to pass it off as a badge of courage though. Then all his friends at the Jiffy Lube with think him to be so clever….

As I understand it, it should be easy to fix though. They’ve already paid their $50 for the “personalized” tag, they probably just didn’t choose anything to actually put on the plate for the letters. They’ll have to go back, pay a fee/fine and get it re-issued with different letters.

I can’t wait for a lawsuit because it wont work… You accept the terms of the license plate; and I seriously doubt the state will go through the trouble to re-issue 1K plates just because they happen to say “CAM” on them.

In the meantime, it should be a fun “game” to SAFELY take pics of the plates as you see them around the state. $10 says Mr. Warblogle would post them (either on twitter, fb or here)…

I would pay for the tag if Saban had CAM002 on his car. WDE
