Personalized License Plates
Posted by TK (+1624) 13 years ago
Ok, Going to try something different here.....What kinds of plates have you seen but can NOT seem to figure out what they say???? (or some that you can?)

In high school, I had this one:
DAR2DV8
(pretty simple, really....)

My mom has this one:
GSTRYDR
Some guy thought it meant G-String Rider! ROFLOL
It actually means Ghost-Rider

A hint to my husband that I really wanted one of the new GTO's, only to have my hopes dashed!
But he did let me get a Camaro instead!

This is what mine say:

LKYSLDY

Hint: My husband drives a one-ton dually with plates that is part of the beginning of my personal plates.

However, it was already taken ...

In Virginia once I saw this.....

a license plate with a license plate holder around it
and top of the holder said "Yes"
then the plate said "Virginia" obviously the name of the state and then the plate number said ....."thereis"

then the bottom of the plate holder said "a Santa Claus"

I have always considered that one of the most clever plates ever.

For all of you that don't remember that is an old expression from a movie
"yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus"

IO IO (hint -- seen on a Mercedes)

Off topic: Just to make sure credit goes where it is due, the common opening "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus" was actually a response by the now defunct New York Sun newspaper to a "letter to the editor" from a distraught girl whose "little friends" had been taunting her for still believing in Santa Claus. It's a great story, made all the more wonderful by the fact that the man who penned the heart-tugging lines was a crusty old cur of the old school of reporting. Apparently he amazed everyone with the tenderness and whimsy he infused in his magical reply.

Another guy in California had this one for about two years, "4NIK8." Then the DMV figured out what it meant and took it away from him. I used to see a guy in a Mustang in San Diego all the time with "YSSUP" which didn't mean anything until I read it backwards.

I had one that was pretty easy to figure out ARBORNE. The wife couldnt get the "I" in there for the complete AIRBORNE. A few I saw on Ft Bragg was GRNLTGO (Green Light (Go the command to jump) JMPMSTR (JUMPMASTER) TWDJMPR (TOWED JUMPER)

I won't spell out what this means lest any young kids read this but does anyone in the Seattle/Washington area remember this license plate being in the news?

Did anyone actually see it?

Another one I saw was an all-black Camaro with neon-green rims with a license plate that simply read "Death".

I was having a bad day and that just made me laugh for some reason.

I'm pretty sure it's "captain of fun"

I was right behind the owner of this plate in line at the Treasurers Office. In the interest of honest advertising, my plate is a comparison to his and says "notsomuch"

Cmon Capn reveal yourself to the masses or at least the dozen or so regulars on milescity.com. I would give you up but I'm not that kind of guy.

I thought it was "Coprolite of Fun"....

Not sure where I got that idea though...

Posted by Jess Bradley (+203) 13 years ago
When I got my last car I tried to get NTMNKY. The DMV told me I couldn't have it because it could be taken in the wrong context and offend someone. ???? Not sure what that would mean that could be construed as bad but whatever. Had to go with &T MNKY instead and that was ok by them. Go figure.
Was kind of offended when the other day I saw MNKYBUT on a plate though!

We could come up with some alternatives.

How about "carport of fun" sort of a teenage redneck theme

"Crumpet of fun" perhaps a chap from the UK

I think we are close to drawing him out - keep it up SC

The one that said UQTINVU was on the Mustang II of an ex-girlfriend of mine back in my high school days.

WEBMASTER LARRY: you may be interested to know that a former KATL coworker of mine, Cindy Kay Lehman, had IXLR8QK on her car - so I guess she was the one who stole your idea? Sadly, she was murdered in Colorado some time ago.

In Glendive, someone once had: 2BZ4UQT - I thought that was pretty clever.

My neice recently bought a new car and wanted to get a plate signifying her alma mater. The DMV denied her request, which was to be predicted. It mattered not when she explained that CONDOM stood for the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, which is a centuries old Catholic womans college in Baltimore. Apparently the DMV has no appreciation of irony.

My husband jumped at the opportunity to purchase back the first "new car" he ever owned. A Z28 Camaro special order and after three owners, he sent me to the courthouse with this mission to order up plates that say "MYNAGIN". Great part is I tell people it says "my naggin'" Both are quite fitting.

Hey Roni!

I remember your little yellow Mercury back then...if I remember hearing correctly, "1T5K10L" meant:

1T = penny for your thoughts
5K = nickel for your kiss
10L = dime for your love

is that right? I rememeber thinking that was pretty clever when I first heard someone explain it.

Anyway, say hi to Scott!

I thought my first personalized plates were rather clever though no one else really could figure it out...KMWTHAY. It stands for "Kym with a Y" (my name is spelled KYM). Everyone thought it meant "Kame with Hay" so I decided that if I'm going to have a confusing one I'm going to go all out! My current plates read: JNSAYPA. I'm not going to lie, I'm rather proud of this one. It says je ne sais pas which is French for "I don't know." Here is an example of a conversation that I have had several times (which is basically why I got the plates)!

Friend: So what do your plates say?
Me: Je ne sais pas - it's french.
Friend: What does it mean?
Me: I don't know.
Friend: Then why the hell did you get it?

Ahhh, it still gets me every time!
