The voters spoke and it’s official. I consider it a mandate. The license plate going on the Chick Magnet (a.k.a. van) is RLY4R.
Over 61% of the people chose it among their top three picks. A total of 289 people voted (casting well over 700 votes). I sincerely hope you had fun with this. I know I sure did.
It was really exciting to see how much interest it generated. From my end, I know I never would have thought up most of the wonderful suggestions.
The next step in getting the Magnet road-worthy is to run all the paperwork through DMV. From there, I’ll take it to a mechanic and give it the once-over and get all inspections. Then, off to the body shop to have the surface rust removed. After this, it gets fun (if it’s not costly). I plan on getting it painted (thinking WVU blue and gold accent) with artwork.
As the process above is going on, I’ll equip the interior with all the necessary medical equipment and supplies that one would find in an ambulance. You know, oxygen, suction, vitals monitor, bandages, urinary/bowel supplies, oral care supplies, and so on. I wonder if the police would mind if I installed a siren and flashing lights? Hmmm…
My thinking on the obvious overkill of interior functionality is twofold: 1) It would give peace of mind when transporting Ryan to medical appointments, and 2) It would allow us to take day trips or outings knowing everything he needs during a routine day is right with us. I see no reason it couldn’t even include a feeding pump.
Oh, I’ll make sure there is enough room for the chicks that are helplessly drawn to it.
