State Archives of Florida: Series 1046, Box 18, Folder 1
License plate contest entry submitted by Loman O. Parent of Auburndale, Fl, featuring two designs, including one depiction of a Florida man cutting his friend "Fred" from the belly of a gator.
This series contains license plate drawings from 1985 maintained by the Division of Motor Vehicles. The drawings and related correspondence are in response to an open contest for citizens to submit their ideas for a new motor vehicle tag design. Over 3,500 entries were submitted to the Division. The Cabinet eventually rejected all of the submissions and settled on just reversing the colors already in use.
