Default Custom Irish license plate anyone?

Gents,
I have a business trip planned to Cork, Ireland the 3rd week of February.
If you would like a custom Irish License plate for the front of your car and live in the US, let me know. (first 5 people who want one)

Normally the first two digits are the first year of registration, the middle one or two letters, the county of registration, and the last 5 are sequential.
So if my car was originally the 2nd car registered in 1999 in County Cork, it would read 99-C-00002. The plate stays with the car no matter how many times it's sold.
Most auto part shops make them for you, they are not provided by the state.
The auto part shops don't care what they make, so I had one made when I was there in 1999. (see picture)
The county is written in Irish (Gaelic) along the top. Cork = Corcaigh.

Mine fell from above a door and the center of a "9" popped off. The surface is pure reflective white. The flash made the edges look like ****.

Cost: actual - US$ 23.15 shipped from Philly.
Why only US? There is probably something illegal about mailing bogus license plates across the border. UK members may be saying, "No big deal". Yes, to you, but for Yanks with Irish Heritage, it is a novelty. We're mutts.

I will not make a cent on this, I am doing it as a public service as pay back for all the great info I've gotten on the 964 Forum. If I am breaking any RL rules, please let me know and I will call it off.

If you want one, please indicate with a comment and PM me. Tell me how you want it to read.

Totally custom: maximum 10 letters (caps) or numbers or "-" i.e. --> "964-TIM"
I was just trying to explain how they normally look, and why mine started with 99-C (my choice)

My father had one made for his Porsche, which I now have. We have the same initials and we're both Irish as well! Unfortunately I can't keep it on the car in California because legally you're supposed to have your California plate on the front. Wish I could still keep it on the car!

Pennsylvania only requires a rear plate, but I have a real German plate on my front instead for 'authenticity'. ;-)

2 confirmed, 3 spaces left in my suitcase......

The last one is wet from the rain. I had to go back to the shop to get one redone, and it is ALWAYS raining here. (Tim you owe me one)
