“Postmaster sports new plates”
From the Knik Arm Courier, May 4, 1966:
Chugiak Postmaster Paul Swanson will be advertising the zip code of the local post office everywhere he drives this coming year.
Swanson requested that the license plate number of his car for 1966 correspond with the zip code of the Chugiak Post Office.
Local residents who may still have trouble remembering the zip code of the Chugiak Post Office need only glance at the Swanson family car as it drives by to see that it is 99567. (Of course, it might be just as convenient to read it on the new sign that has just been hung in front of the post office).
