Vanity plate ideas

So I need some Ideas for a vanity plate in FL. I figure this can also be used for everyone else in the future who needs some ideas. I prefer something pertinent to my boxster like [9 ATE SIX] but it doesnt have to be and it could be in german too. thanks

There are some examples here:

I tried to get 9ate6 here in NJ, but they rejected it because they said it was sexual in nature.

So, I ended up with:

I was going to to do the same thing and planned it out for a while.

After all, I decided I didn't want to pay 25$ a year for people to think I was clever.

I have to admit, there was a few people that thought I was trying to say something religous with the GUD part. Not everyone got it even though I thought it was completely obvious.

One of my neighbors used to have a Corvette with the license plate FQU2. I never liked that guy as you can probably gather he was very arrogant. I just wonder how he passed that with the DMV.

I had to arm wrestle a couple of nuns at the DMV to get this one.

Where I live in Perth, Western Australia there are a lot of Italians who like their personalised plates. I have seen 2 examples that managed to somehow get by our equivalent of DMV. They were STU CUTS and FUN COOL. From my limited knowledge of Italian they phonetically translate to more or less F*** that! and Get F*****!

Just an amusing tidbit, not sure if I would like them on my car, but each to their own.

Vanity plates however are well known for their witty and stylish names
and conversions of numbers and alphabets
and thus many youngsters and celebrities love to get one for their vehicles.

It looks as if I will be moving out of state for a job this summer. I am actually stoked to be moving to a state with one plate and to not have a personalized one anymore. Not that it's bad ... I just don't want to attract any more attention than I need to.

That said, I hope you get one that you like. Some of them are fantastic and hilarious!

good luck on the move! see that is what I want something fun. but at the same time I cant cater to all groups cuz not everyone is going to get the meaning. but if the AX guys like ill be happy. or other PCar owners. or car lovers that type of thing. thats why you have to give props to those plates you see that are just really awesome because it isnt easy coming up with something original.

A lawyer friend of mine gave me some advice once. Never get a vanity plate on your car.

"Did you see the guy speeding through your neighborhood?"

"Yes he was in a yellow sports car"

"Well ma'am there are a lot of yellow sports cars out there"

OR witha vanity plate...

"Did you see the guy speeding through your neighborhood?"

"I did not get a good look at the car but the tag was IMFAST"

So I got a generic tag on my yellow boxster.
