Does anyone have the answer where the idea for the plate #THX 138 originated from?
Get the stance right, followed by fit & finish.

THX-1138 was the first film George Lucas ever directed.  According to the book "Cinema by the Bay",  these numbers and letters correlate to his phone number while in college which was 849-1138.... or THX-1138.  He seems to carry that number/letter theme somewhere in all the movies he does including all the Star Wars movies.

In the garage.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.
