The Wrigley Wax Vehicle Fleet

To maintain the vast world-wide Wrigley Wax empire, a fleet of vehicles is necessary.  Today's post deals with that fleet.

Actually, I'd like to show you something special on the cars that Mrs. WW and I drive.  I've got a 2007 Saturn Aura.  I love my Saturn.  We've had three and were sad when GM ditched the brand.  First, look what happened last weekend:

I hit the 100,000 mile mark!

Mrs. WW drives a 2011 GMC Terrain.  She likes having an SUV to haul groceries, gardening items, and other big stuff.

Should you ever encounter a red 2007 Aura or a silver 2011 Terrain with Michigan plates, you may wonder if you've bumped into the WW family.

Want to be sure?  Then look closely at the plates (and it is rear plates only in Michigan)...


07 Cubs on Mrs. WW's vehicle and 08 Cubs on mine.

I've had these for about ten years now.  The significance of the numbers is that is when the Cubs won the World Series.  When I tell that to people, several have  said, "I didn't know the Cubs won the World Series in 2008."

I then have to sheepishly tell them that it wasn't in 2008, they won in 1908.

However, with the run that the Cubs are on right now, I'm thinking I may need to get a new plate.

And we are not talking 1915 either.  This baby is for 2015!!

Anyone else out there have personalized plates?


  1. I loved my Saturn, too! But I've been just as happy with my Hyundai Elantra since. It just hit 40k on my trip.

    No personalized plates, but if I did, it would probably be Cubs related. 15 Cubs sounds good! Can I claim it for Virginia?

  2. I have a personalized Veteran plate with my nickname on it: RAZ.

  3. Don't have a personalized plate... but a few years ago, I saw a woman with a very nice Vette. Her license plate... myxstoy. I'm sure her ex-husband isn't amused.

  4. I don't know if I'm more impressed by your car reaching 100,000 miles, or that you could steady your camera while doing 70mph! :)
