license plate ideas?

I've owned my Boxster for a year now and befoer I renew my plate I was going to purchase a vanity plate for it. I'm in Virginia where nearly everyone has one. Do you guys have any ideas?

You should get LED replacements for your license plates too. I see them around and they're beautiful.

... speaking of which, does anyone know what kind of bulb our license plate takes?
apologies for the thread jack

We put "DOCNBOX" on ours when my wife got her PhD.

The ultimate plate is of course "Danger" . However, one has to be a man of global intrigue and international fame, as well as being able to locate the "G" spot on large Hungarian women, before The Strategic World Command will give authorization to any DMV to release it .

I was thinking about getting "KIPPIS", which is Finnish for "cheers", but I imagine there could be some problems with the authorities on that one.
