I figured this group would appreciate the meaning of my new license plate (and obviously my screen name). What do you think?

I like it. Is this a 08 Type S? Because if it wasn't, one can make an argument that an "08 Type S" is the last year production of this amazing generation of TL!

Which is how it's meant. I guess depending on how specific you want to get, unless I had the very last 08 built (it's an 07), it wouldn't be true.

There's a little more to the meaning that just the obvious. When my 17 YO was looking for his first car and ended up buying his Type-S (New Member - Father/Son Matching Type S) I realized that he, his friends and really anyone in that age group, didn't think of Acura the way I do. Sadly, as we all know, after the 3rd Gen TL they've become an "also ran" rather than setting the standard and that's all a lot of people remember. I've had to "educate" my son on the Legend, the Integra and while he knew of the NSX, he didn't understand what a game changer it was. So, as we've talked about Acura, the idea that this generation was the last great one has come up a lot. No offense to later models, which are nice cars, just not as standard setting as the late 90s - 2000s Acuras.
