And...how tall are you?

There's an interesting story behind this plate plus a local connection. The plate means that the driver of the vehicle is Six-foot-nine inches tall. The plate belongs to Paul Klassen of Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. The Icon spotted the plate at the Dairy Freeze, where Paul and his wife, Ruth, were having ice cream cones. The Klassens are parents of Karen Klassen Harder of Bluffton. Paul says he was once 6-9, but may have lost an inch somewhere along the way.
