    Wow, major bummer. I'm sure the folks in N.H are upset. Isn't the Old Man on the liscense plates?

    I am pretty sure the "Old Man" is on their State quarters too, I don't have one in my pocket to check. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I just read the article. Here is a quote:

    "The Old Man was New Hampshire's most recognizable symbol.

    It appears on the state quarter, on state road signs and on countless souvenirs and tourist brochures. Millions of tourists have traveled through Franconia Notch to view the profile, 1,200 feet above Interstate 93 about 65 miles north of Concord."

    From the article, it sounds like there will be an attempt to restore it. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
