In the last 2 weeks, we've published two articles about vanity license plates: one that listed all the cars with FAST vanity plates across the country and one that listed all the cars with SLOW vanity plates. I expected people would find these lists kind of amusing. What I wasn't expecting is that the owners of these plates would actually contact us.

We'll start with the SLOW people -- who had far more exciting cars, in general, than the FAST people. Two of the SLOW people contacted me on my Facebook page to show off their license plates and the excellent cars they were attached to: The Arkansas SLOW was attached to a Shelby GT500, and the Illinois SLOW was attached to an Audi R8. Stunningly, we didn't hear from the person in New York who has SLOW on a '99 Civic.

More interesting to me, however, was the FAST person who contacted me. Was it the Ford GT in Idaho? The Lotus Esprit in Illinois? The AMG SL65 in Nebraska?

Nope: It was the guy in Connecticut with the 2007 Honda Accord, one of the ones I specifically called out for putting the FAST license plate on a decidedly slow car.

So why does this reader, who chose to remain nameless, have the FAST plate on an Accord? As it turns out, it's a great story: His grandfather acquired FAST way back in 1958, which means the plate has been in his family for 60 years -- and for a while, he told me, they also had SLOW in Connecticut! Although the plate has seen a few interesting cars over the decades, such as an Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider, it's primarily been on more mundane vehicles -- including today's 2007 Honda Accord.

That's a good story. Hopefully there's a similar reason why FAST in Alabama is on that Prevost bus.
