Last Call: Dare to be stupid

To race the Dakar Rally is a daring feat. To affix a personalized plate to a vehicle is somewhat stupid. I like to live with a foot in both realms, which is why I ordered the plate DUHKAR for my Montero.

For those unaware, the Mitsubishi Montero (Pajero Evolution) is the most successful vehicle model raced in the Dakar Rally. A Montero has won the race 12 times. The first win came in 1985. Next, a few victories were sprinkled throughout the 1990s. Then, Mitsubishi’s racing team ripped off in 2001 all the way through 2007.

Now I’d like to count my plate as a victory… for those that dare to be stupid.
