Personalized License plates

Postby Ixtellor » Wed Dec 17, 2008 5:15 pm UTC

1) Is it safe to link a picture or even State what mine/yours is?
(ie can some /b/ tard use it to mess up my life, does it instantly make you unanonymous?)

2) Who else has one? (What is it? assuming question 1 comes out safe)

3) I dont' want to show mine, but here are some others I applied for and were rejected or didn't make it. (In Texas you submit a list of plates you want, and they go down the list and pick the first one that isn't taken AND is acceptable[no sware words])

Grrrr
L337 V8
Pwned
Vad3r

I was very disappointed that Grrrr didn't make it. That was my top choice.
My 2nd choice ended up getting picked. I like my current plates but sometimes consider resubmitting and trying to get "L337 V8" again.

In the UK it's not that easy to get plates. We have to use these formats (thanks wikipedia for the c/p)
* XXX 999
* 999 XXX
* XXX 999 X
* X 999 XXX
* XX 99 XXX
I saw a car with B16 RON on (Big Ron) which made me lol, but most of the time I don't particularly like them tbh.
Anything I said pre-2014 that you want to quote me on, just run it past me to check I still agree with myself.

Pwn3d is definitely taken already, at least it would be a huige surprise if it wasn't.

I'd go for Vad3er. That's awesome. :-) (Damn, now I have the Vader Rap stuck in the head)

I saw JEDI before. I was a little honoured to see the car of the guy who actually scored the JEDI plate before anyone else. I've also seen X-WING, but was a little less impressed.

My boyfriend's plate is his name, then our anniversary [5/14].

I don't have a car yet so I have no idea what mine will be.

Looks like you still have 99 to me.

So, are we cool with posting license plate pictures? I mean, they're on your car, which is in public most of the time, I don't see what's wrong with it. Besides, why have vanity plates if you won't show 'em off?
Basically, while I was looking for JEDI pictures for proof, I found this one: Image

Once a year in Queensland they auction off a single 7-character vanity plate for charity. A friend of mine told me he once saw a ratty old hatchback bearing a shiny new plate reading DARKELF.

Funniest one I saw was on a Toyota Supra, all done up with decals, nice paint job, awesome rims and playing rap music so loud I could hear it from 40meters away. What makes it so funny was that the guy driving it was in his late 60's, and the number plate was HipHopPop.

I've also seen Bacon. Twice.

Did a little Research and found it it is fairly risky/dangerous to post your actual license plate.
So I won't be posting mine. I will just say that it is gamer oriented and written in L337

I would not recommend posting license plates here...

But mine, while it is not personalized in the actual plate, I have a border...it says Holland Lops and then my website as well :D (I raise & show Holland Lop rabbits)

Not quite the same, but I once mailed something to someone whose address had the Canadian postal code P3N 1S# (where # is a number).

Intelligence reveals that this is a location just north of Sudbury, and also that such a location is effing hilarious.

In other news, Barrie has the postal code beginning with L0L, but unfortunately I don't think a postal code L0L 0M6 exists.

Someone has (or had) a display picture of themselves in front of a car with the license plate "Oh me yarm LOL". I remember it was not theirs though.

Is there something wrong with me if the first thing I did was convert the number to 1337speak, instead of noticing the extremely basic number pattern? I read it as "AEZLO", got confused, then slapped myself in the face.

my plate was random, but almost cool. it has "1332" in it. HE LEER

i did see "LINUX" a couple weeks ago by a Chase bank in illinois.
i would have followed it, but i don't think the person i was with would have understood; especially since he was inside the bank at the time.

There's a nearby town with the area code 01234.
So, of course, we've prank-called 01234 567890. It's an office block. Meh.

My old boss had vanity plates that read 'BONJOVI' or something similar, that her boyf had got her when she was 16. She's in her thirties now. What was funny was she kept getting approached by people who wanted to buy them off her.

My boss and his wife are both big time Florida Gator fans. Her license plate reads "MSGAT0R". I think his was just some random one pre-made.

on it and stuck it under the wiper. I'll never know if he got it. (cwhutIdidthere?)

Personally not a fan. I prefer to name the cars after the plates. We had a hatch-back pulsar with the plate PRE-XXX so we called it Grand Prix.

I saw XX7777 yesterday, which I thought was kinda neat.

I can't see how plates can be that risky. In Australia, if you wish to sell a car, it is law to have the rego-number included on the ad, so there's plates everywhere...

I've also seen Bacon.

there's a theme in my town of XXX99X So you'd have BEA86U would obviously be a 23 year old guy named Beau.

I've seen "ROFL" before. It was on a red sports car that is usually driven by a prick but this guy can't be a prick if he has the rofl plate. He must be a geek.

Saw RED 5 on a license plate, also have a sticker with a red 5 on it. I was pretty happy to see it.
I also saw the plate BIGGS as well. Yay for star wars references!

I used to live down the street from the house(s) of some hardcore... drifters? What do you call people who do that fancy car drifting stuff?

...Anyway, saw these plates:
DR1FT 1 (I guess "DR1FT" was taken)
5L1DE
SCR33CH

And my favorite?
AIIYAAH

My current neighbors have friends with the plate MOFFLES. I'm seriously confused as to what it's supposed to mean.
...It made more sense in my head.

In Virginia, it's only an additional $10 per year on your registration for a personalized tag, so everyone has one. (Actually, they didn't even ask for the additional $10 when I renewed my registration, so it only cost $20 up-front for my personalized tag.)

Some of the best ones I've seen:
CTRL Z (VA)
CTHULHU (DC)
LOL (VA)
ESCFLWNE (NC)

Mine's a Super Mario Bros. 3 reference. I still feel weird about actually saying what it is on a forum, though--probably for the same reasons as Ixtellor. KF
