Buccaneers of the open road

A Jeep with a Captain Jack Sparrow-worthy license plate.

Andy Carvin

It might not have sails, or an anchor, or a mizzenmast (isn't that a great word?) but this Jeep is probably the most legitimate pirate vessel you'll see all day, unless you happen to be logging onto Crave from the beaches of Tortuga. This vehicle was spotted by blogger Andy Carvin on the roads of Washington, D.C. a few weeks ago. I like to think it's driven by a swashbucklers' rights lobbyist. (Special interests, my foot!)

Almost equally awesome is the license plate holder, which says "TOO CLOSE FOR CANNONS" on the top and "PREPARE TO BE BOARDED" underneath.
