I will eventually putting a plate on my coupe project that most of you know about. I think I will go with a custom plate. I put nice orginal year of manufacture plates on my 65, and I went with "6 SSPEED" on my six speed 95 SS, so the coupe deserves a cool plate, too. I haven't come up with any ideas yet. Don't want something "gangster". I think it should be something about the car itself.

Any ideas for me? Oh, we get up to eight letters.

Lucky you with your eight characters! We Texans only get six.

Maybe...
"864FLEET"
"81 8-6-4"
"V8-6-4"
"V864 CAD"
"BIGBLOCK"

"LV BOAT"
"ROADBOAT"
"BIGWOOD" :)
"BIGR THN U" or "BIGR N U"
"WIDE LOAD"

I am sure I will come up with more soon.

I once saw a Rolls Royce Phantom with a custom plate. It said "3 OF 12" :D

Some more plates though:
"ELEGANCE"
"D ELEGANT"
"81 COUPE"
"RD WARIOR"
"CAD CLASS"
"LND YACHT"

"FNCYARS" Fancy-ass
"MADCAD"
"USSCDLAC"
"USSCADDY"
"USSFLTWD"

I almost got "BRO-HAM" for my 91, but decided it was kind of racist.

On my 88 Brougham I have "TX SZD 88" (Texas Sized 88) I wish we had 8 letters... only 7 here in IL. You must be in NY or NC... I think you can get 8 in them states. In addition to Cadi stuff, I also have a nice license plate collection. (Have several from each state) My friends dad used to own a junkyard, and sometimes I get them from where I work... off Repos when before sell them.

When I was looking for my plate:

......on the Ontario MTO website I input all sorts of ideas. I was amazed what wasn't already taken at that time.

I was having a hard time deciding between CADILIKE and LUXURI 8.

What about JAYSKOOL? :bouncy:

GR8COUPE :rolleyes:
HAULWHYT :cool2:
ICEBRRRG (it's big and white.....and chillin') :highfive:
TITANIC :histeric:
BLEACHED :cool:
BLANC IT :bonkers:
WYRWHEEL :bling:

Here goes 0:;)
WHYTNYTE (Can't have White Knight)
SHESMY81
MYSTRESS (MISTRESS would prolly be considered porn, at least by the Connecticut DMV)
SHESMINE (Wife or GF might object)
COOLLADY (Getting up in years but classy and dignified as the Queen herself)
BROUGHAM (I'd be amazed if nobody already has it)

Then a takeoff in the infamous, and all in numbers, backward and forward:
41000014

Canada, with its bilingual interests, might find it pleasant to see a Cadillac using the vanity plate with
DLAMOTHE
dropping the "E" for the fellow from whom the crest was taken for the Cadillac emblem.
Prolly too 'sub-tile' for most, but if you're ever in Quebec, you'll likely be mobbed.:bouncy:

Had I bought a black car I would have tried to get CADNOIR for the same anglo-french reason.

Then, with a white Cadillac, things become more difficult. In French, that is, what with their "sexist" attitudes toward words. For example, with eight letters you might have:
CADBLANC
if it's male
or
CABLANCH
if it's female and then you still lose the final "E."
Yet, I still think that just might be the way to go with some more, and deeper, thought.
