Okay, for a variety of reasons, my old vanity plate has to go.
What do I do for a new one?? I can have up to 7 letters, with up to 2 half-spaces.....
The candidates are:
ELD 4 LIF - Not sure about this one, but maybe...
CDLC PAT - I run a football pool on the internet, it's called "Cadillac Pat's Pool", and has been for years. A reference to that, possibly....
PTK 7997 - Obviously a ripoff of my screen name, but maybe not bad... probably mistaken for a non-vanity plate more often than not, but people who knew would know it.
Or, NO vanity plate, just get a regular plate....
Somebody on the CTS forum has BRK THRU, but that's probably better on a CTS, a newer design... he's not in my state, though, I could try for that... I kinda like that.
Anyway, I'm open to suggestions. Thanks!

I voted no vanity plate either....it's so hard to come up with something for those (well for me at least) so I'd rather just save my money LOL

Only plates clever enough to provide a riddle or convey meaning to the car behind are worth paying for IMO. Otherwise what's the point? :hmm:
I think vanity plates have jumped the shark.
I'm due to renew the end of this month. I'm getting one of these:
$15.50 of my renewal fee will go to the Animal Population Control Endowment Fund.

Alright when I get that Mark IV, (which I will someday)
The vanity plates will say "IVPLAY" :sneaky:

I think vanity plates can be fun. I work in advertising and my boss' Miata has AD MAN. Our operations manager, who used to drag race with a '65 Plymouth Belvedere 440, now drives a '79 Corvette with GO GRNMA.
A buddy of mine back in Arizona—and past president of my Impala car club—has a fleet of '72 Impalas—Archie, Edith and Meathead (the convertible), plus Gloria, a '76 Malibu.
Archie is a battered old wreck that he bought for $650 in 1988 and 300,000+ miles later, that old Chevy 350 still runs. So that's what's on his plate: STILRNS.
If you have a certain twisted sense of humor (like I do), Dave's Web site (http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/www.stillruns.com) for his cars is a riot. There's a section of vanity plates (http://www.stillruns.com/customtags.php), and some of them are great. I contributed several (look for the Oregon and Washington plates). My favorites:
On a 55 Bel Air:
On a '57 T-Bird:
On a '64 Impala SS:
On a C5 Corvette:
On a beige '63 Biscayne with dog dish hubcaps and a 409 under the hood:
On a '59 Sedan de Ville flattop:
On a late '60s VW convertible:
On a '73 Duster:
And my absolute favorite, found on an early '50s Chevy Suburban:

Elvis, kudos to Tennessee for having that plate.
If something supporting Humane Societies and/or Pet Rescues was available in the People's Republic of Wisconsin, I would certainly get that.
I've had two rescue dogs now, and they were wonderful. I can tell you first hand that it can be a challenge to have a doggie who's been roughed up, but it is also very very rewarding.
