Alaska’s Grizzly Plate Returns

Original Grizzly Plate
Alaska’s original 1976 grizzly license plate

The State of Alaska has brought back the grizzly license plate, which was originally introduced in 1976 for the U.S. Bicentennial.

Updated Grizzly plate
The 2015 version of the grizzly plate

The Grizzly has been updated in the new version, and some say it looks less like a curious groundhog than the original, but I think they look the same. With the tabs due on the Beetle, I think the griz plate would be perfect. I thought about getting them for The Rover, but if someone was willing to steal the front Chilkoot plate off of it in Montana, they are bound to make off with both grizzly plates the next time we’re in the Low 48.
