    Well we only have one car with a Vanity tag... keep thinking we'll get them for the other cars, but the one we do have is "BLK WIDW" on teh Black Spyder.. I get a lot of strange looks though driving on base with it.. I think they think it means something other than a black spyder : )
    Maybe I'll snap a pic tomorrow..

    On the F-cars I have 'FER R E #'. The # designates each one, as I own several.

    On a Roller, I have 'DA ROLLS', a quirky play on 'Dah Bulls', since I'm in the Chicagoland area.

    'DA ROLLS' seems to evoke humour in a number of people, as I get many positive comments from strangers at stoplights, etc. So......that plate accomplished what I wanted it too.

    Many people look down on others, who own what some consider to be ostentatious vehicles so, I wanted to play down that aspect and say, "It ain't no big deal!"

    Quick question;can you guys in the States have any combo of letters/numbers? Our registration system in UK is much more restrictive so it's almost impossible to get a full name/model out of the combo.
    Mine is just based on my intitials;

    Varies by state. But in general, you are limited to 6 or 7 letters or numbers and sometimes an extra space/dot/dash or two. You are also often restricted from something that would conflict with the "standard" plate patterns.

    As someone who lives in a state restricted to 6 rather than 7, its amazing how much more fits with 7!!
