What would your vanity license plate say?

If I had the money (I'm still paying the car off!) I'd get a license plate that read "MYPRSH" or "BOXSTR" just to spite everyone that ever gave me crap about my old car (1995 Acura Integra - needed LOTS of work done to it) - and believe me when I say that I got hassled by EVERYONE about my car. What would your vanity plate say?

I have a 100% completely original one that I'm planning on using...

But I can't tell you what it is :P

ESPECIALLY if you live in FL.


On my 74 Vette... I was considering getting : VETDRMZ

But just didn't feel right about it

I'd get one that says "GRRLPWR" just to cement everyone's image of the Boxster. Haw haw haw.

Or maybe "HRDRESR"... "LV2SHOP"..."LUVBOYS" har dee har har.

(I'm sick, flying high on dayquil and excedrin, excuse me)

I considered "Im18!!!" or "Boxgasm". I went to call the DMV and they wanted $65 per plate with a $55 fee per year(something around that ballpark). That was the killing point for me.

Dang! 65 a plate? Cali must be rollin in the dough with that highway robbery. I got 2 plates for $35 and I dont know about the fee per year thing. All that for an extra letter, we only get 6, but the 7th doesnt seem worth it anymore, lol.

"IM18" would be a great way to make everyone think you're a total choad, you realize.

I guess, but again, an old Boxster isn't any more expensive than a 350Z, and I would think that a guy driving one of those with an "IM18" plate would also be seen as a jerk, without the Porsche shield. Humility is its own reward, yo.

"Box-Star", of course a combination of Boxster and Rock Star. Not that I'm a Rock Star but when driving the Porsche I feel like one!

I never thought of getting my age because it would change every year. Maybe if I got "88 child" or something I could keep it for a while. Last opinion on vanity plate idea "True G" hahahaha

From my biker days I always wanted DILLIGAF, but it's too long.

I just found out a few weeks ago that I'm getting divorced. So in a month or so, it might just read: WAS HIS......

LOTOWNR

1LOTTO

Not that I have... but it would be nice!

You could go the other way

Vanity Plate

I just checked: "BAD FAD" is still available in California. My Boxster S was a wedding gift from my sister and brother-in-law. My license plate reads: "WDINGIFT"

Wedding present! Damn, that's sweet. I never thought of registering at the Porsche dealer. Maybe in my next life!! Or for my 50th wedding anniversary.
