    It's true no state will do an intial or abreviation with a 'dot' or any symbol character for that matter. As far as the name I can't imagine it would be an issue unless it's already taken.
    As far as what I think you should try to get, first choice WISEGUY, that one is cool. Second choice H HILL and third 392 DIP. I think the 392 DIP would accually be cool. Those who paid close attention to the movie would recognize it and besides, when people ask about your car you can tell them you have the same plate number as Henry did in the movie. Makes it more original.

    I have seen New Hampshire Vanity plates with many different type of symbols such as a dot in the middle to separate numbers or letters, the plus sign (+), the and sign (&), a dash (-), and a few others that I can't remember.... Junk...

    Theres a lot of people out there that hate Henry, and think he is nothing but a scumbag rat. for a long time, he got death threats daily, and theres still a lot of people that would love to see him dead. So it seems a little touchy to have his name on my plate, even though it would be sort of cool.

    I'll consider 392-DIP for my third option though, it would be a good conversation piece with Goodfellas fans, plus it would be more authentic, but I wish I could find an old 1980 New York plate, that would be awesome.

    So I guess my list right now is:
    WISEGUY
    WIZEGUY
    392-DIP

    Oh, by the way, a while ago I saw this really awesome vanity plate that said something like "This vehicle is protected by the mob, you hit us; we hit you" That would be totaly awesome for a front plate! Anybody know where to find one? I'll go try to hunt down the guy that had it, I think it was on rankmyride.com.

    Interesting, I always thought they didn't use those. The dash (-) they used to have here in Michigan but, I've never seen the (&) or (+) in Michigan or in any other state and I have been to New Hampshire more then once. Maybe I didn't look close enough or didn't really think about it.
