I know several people who have done this, then they always end up getting a different car but keeping the same plate. So then it looks kind of stupid, driving around in a Taurus with license plate MUSTANG or something like that.

Targets often have a bull-eye that is worth 10 poitns and a second circle that is smaller that is marked with an 'X'. You don't get additional points for hitting inside the X, but it is used as a tie breaker. A perfect score with 40 rounds is 400 all inside the 'X' ring.

Which is a long way to explain ahead of time the license plate on a competator at a local rifle match that read:

400 40X

Default Personalized plates

The true land of personalized plates is Illinois. At the time I got my first plates (1993), it was no extra fee if you had a number in it. My plates at that time: STILTS3

STILTS1 & STILTS2 were taken.

Interesting plate I have seen lately:
68IOU1

I don't know if I'd ever get a liscense plate that next to no one in the general public would have any idea what it meant.

But hey, different strokes for different folks.

Some people think cucumbers taste better pickled. What are you gonna do.

Yep - I grew up in Illinois and in high school I had my first name and my graduation year on my plates. Almost everyone in my town had personalized plates. You could always recognize who was driving towards you (since Illinois also requires a front plate) and wave!

Saw this plate, and wish I could've seen the owner of the vehicle as well:
SRFBABZ

Then five minutes later saw:
SNO YO

Gotta love a place where you can have surfers & snow boarders living in perfect harmony.

Earlier I saw this plate, and have no idea what it's supposed to mean:
CUNAM[star]Y
(where [star] is an actual star. you can have hearts & stars on license plates out here, because it's always necessary to express yourself with hearts & stars.)

I've seen a bumper sticker that said, "how about we 68? you do me and I owe you 1"

reminds me of the joke:

What's the square root of 69?
8 something.

Why is 77 so good?

Because it's like 69, but you get 8 more.
