    That's a good one Andrew!

    If anyone is thinking about getting a personalized plate, the state of WA has a handy website for checking to see if a plate name is available or not before you mail in the form:

    https://fortress.wa.gov/dol/dolprod/vsdpersonalplateonline/

    Here's a few plates that I've seen around the NW on various Ferraris. I know that I forgot some...anyone else know of some others?

    Thanks for the link Gary! I've seen "IMOLA" on a fly yellow 355 berlinetta in Belltown and "TOLD YA" on a red 355 spider. I want to get "FIORANO" on my 355 fiorano spider (when that eventually happens). :)

    I had "CAVALLO" for a short time on my 308, until I returned it to the original owner. I think he has it on his Daytona now.

    Interesting that a lot of stuff is available...

    4RE 328
    512TR
    512M
    ENZO1 (lame when you have to add a number after, cause someone else has the original..)
    32VALVE is available again :)
    ENZOS
    GTB
    348TS
    FOS (Ferrari of Seattle) Tino should get that one! :)

    Hey, even STEVEJ and STEVEJ1 are available...what's up with that? :)

    so if i am reading that right you can only get "collector" plates if a car is 30yrs or older?

    I thought that "TIFOSI" would be a great plate, though I found that it was taken already. I then saw it on a f---'n P-car last spring. German tifosi?

    I also saw the FIORANO plate on a 360 Modena in Redmond.

    Still working on a plate for my 360 CS for this spring.
