Number Plate Topper was created by Terry Cockerell
While scanning the Internet for old American number plates I came across a picture of a Connersville plate topper.
This had obviously been cast in aluminium with the letters "open" to reduce wind resistance. After searching for an original one, I gave up and decided to make my own reading Made In CONNERSVILLE Indiana.
A local engraver did the letters and I shaped the ends and added the paint. My original will sit up front on my 810 Westchester that was originally sold in Canada. Two more will grace the Auburn and Cord in the Connersville Museum.
The intention here is not to detract anything from Auburn or the Reunion but just make people aware of the bigger picture.

Hi Randy, yes the plate topper I found on the Internet reads ,
"Connersville An Industrial City"
I just used the concept to make my own which says,
"Made In CONNERSVILLE Indiana"

Regards,
Terry
