Tenkaramobile - the new license plates

Tenkaramobile - the new license plates

Just got the new plates for the Tenkaramobile. Can you guess what car it is?

The first person to answer what car this license plate is on will receive a box with 6 flies that I'll personally tie. - update: the prize has been given.

UPDATE (11/29): Most people were super close! I actually agonized for days on whether to put the plates on my Subaru Outback, which really is the mountain car, or on the Prius which is my environmentally-friendly business car. In the end the "TENKARA" plate went on the Prius, and Paul will be getting the flies - Paul, send me an email with your address please.

Chris' answer would have gotten the "most original answer" prize if we had one, and Steve's would have gotten the "smart-ass" price...=))

Tenkaramobile, Toyota Prius Tenkara

I use the Prius much more than the Subaru these days, so it will get more visibility for the tenkara plate. It's also the car used for business purposes; it started as a vehicle for running errands around town, going to business meetings, etc, but then it was hard to not take the Prius on the longer fishing trips - ah, the pleasure of getting 43 miles per gallon! Even though it has much less clearance and is not a 4WD, it's hard to beat the gas savings. Although it's nice to have clearance and 4-wheel traction - and a couple of times I thought I would get stuck in places where I was so used to driving into with the Subaru without a second thought - most places don't really require 4WD and high-clearance and  the Prius has proven trustworthy as the tenkaramobile.
