Hmmm, curious. I just saw this on the freeway.

I heart GIN

She was swerving a little, but I think she was just a bad driver.

RE: Vanity Plates "XVII"

Maybe a cowboy who hauls highly trained horses (called "cutters") to cattle herds. They separate, or "cut," certain cows out of the herd so they can be branded, or dehorned (cut the horns off), or whatever.

The '8's were clever way of packing double 'oh's in there. California limits to 7 characters and this effectively gave him 8 plus a space. I thought it was very clever.

And no, it wasn't a Mazda


RE: Vanity Plates "XVII"

Hi Sam,

I didn't know the commercials are so similar world wide, but why shoudln't they?
In regard of breaking the limitation of 7 characters in California plates, what about chinese restaurants, are eight treasures plates forbidden in California, too?

Bye, Olaf.

RE: Vanity Plates "XVII"

This one made me chuckle, especially since a dude was driving it.
LACTATE

RE: Vanity Plates "XVII"

Not real sure what this means but I like to think back at IT:

BK AT IT

djj
The Lord is my shepherd (Psalm 23) - I need someone to lead me!

RE: Vanity Plates "XVII"

Heh, regarding the LACTATE plate, I once saw a car with bumper sticker that said "HONEY HIPS". I sped up to see what kind of "babe" was driving it. I came along side just to see a big burly, hairy, biker lookin' dude driving! I was really hoping he was just borrowing the car!

Vanity plates are not uncommon round these parts, but I was impressed to see the following three on the same day:

That translates to Half 117. Clever way to have 58.5 on a german number plate.

RE: Vanity Plates "XVII"

I was driving to my parent's for Thanksgiving and saw a brand new, 2016 Corvette. The plate was "WWEEE JR".

As I passed him, I noticed a couple year old Corvette in front of him with the license plate "WWEEE".

RE: Vanity Plates "XVII"

I saw this on a Jeep yesterday. I can't figure out the meaning.

Since I was there for a funeral of a loved one.. I didn't care too much for that plate. sad

RE: Vanity Plates "XVII"

I just ordered a personalized plate for my Jeep. I plan to add a license plate frame to add some context.

Frame top:	Simple Math
License:	4X4+MUD
Frame bottom:	Equals Fun
 
Or something like that.

either the D didn't fit because the license plates have a 8 character restriction (they do) or it is a really sweet network guy that drove it.

Well, that depends on which state you live in. Some states have a limit of 7 characters.

RE: Vanity Plates "XVII"

saw one with the I within the heart in front and the letters were
TO TCH
I misread the first time and thought it said
I LOVE TO THC
looking at the lady driving and thought that she didn't really look like a pothead I read it again and finally got it.
To my defense it was a long day and I just saw these all over elephant2

No, it was on a car. I didn't catch the make/model. It passed me as I was exiting the interstate.
