We're post world war III here remember? In Kirks time, we're post a lot of things. Who knows what environmental damage may have been done in all the years from here to there. Nothwithstanding the fact that just because the corvette has Iowa plates, doesn't necessarily mean it is in Iowa. We drive cars all over this country from every state. I see more different plates at work every day than you can shake an ear of corn at.
