1994-98 - Amber Waves of Grain
For the 1994 issue, Indiana went back to the farm scene for the first time in more than a decade.
Some people didn't like this design, and to be fair, it didn't look all that great on certain cars, but I liked it. In the interest of full disclosure, for the last two years this plate was used, I had a red car. It looked good on that one.
And I still do.
Early issues used a new-design county sticker, but someone finally woke up and realized they weren't necessary, so they fell by the wayside before 1993 was out. Thank. You. Lord.
Where they came from:
1994: St. Joseph County
1995: Delaware County
1996: Henry County (issued to my uncle, Jerry Newkirk, for a 1980 Dodge Aspen Sunrise coupe that he sold to my brother that year)
1997: Spencer County (this one was my second plate, on a 1989 Ford Escort Pony hatchback that I drove to college, work and wherever for a few years. Still miss that car.)
1998: Vigo County (issued to my aunt, Madonna Hummel, for a Honda of some vintage that she owned for a while)
