As you are probably no doubt aware, most 1951 Club members are human. There are however some notable exceptions. We have among our members, for example, two computers (Univac 1 & Ferranti Mark 1), plus an intergalactic law-enforcement officer by the name of Gort from The Day the Earth Stood Still.
The other day I googled 1951 and it came up with this brilliant license plate …
Naturally, I was curious about this and I discovered that it was attached to a 2005 Toyota Prius belonging to John Halamka which he featured in his wonderful blog.
1951 HZ is a purely random license plate issued in the state of Masaschusetts. Some bright spark wondered if the license plate had some profound meaning.
One of the possibilities he came up with …
1951 Hertz is the frequency of the humpback whale grunt. (HZ = Hertz)
Have a look at John’s blog for other ideas. Anyway … 1951 HZ is now an official member of the 1951 Club and many thanks to John for agreeing to this.
