Vanity Plates

Customized or personal license plates on automobiles have been around for years. Our family car still has the set that my wife gave me for the first birthday we celebrated together. Some of them are very cute and clever, and often have a message with them. That message could be a political statement, or advertise a business. Some of the best ones are on today’s Warped site.

The site is called Vanity Plates. This page is a list of hundreds (1008 at last count, to be exact) of actual car plates that were or are currently in use. Some of them require some thought to understand, but explanations are provided for all of them. They are arranged in alpha-numerical order. Here are some of the good ones:
SPDGTKT Speeding ticket, on a red corvette
Z WIZ On a Camaro Z-28
GDAM8 Good day, Mate! On an Aussie car
GONLOCO Seen leaving mental hospital
OOO LALA What more do you need to say? On a 1991 Red Convertible Corvette with IL Plates
There are many more of them here, as well as some links to sites that feature stories on vanity plates, including Parade Magazines contest results for the the most clever plates. These sites just go to show how creative we Americans can be.
