    What plates should I get for my '79 Phaeton? (Goodfellas car)

    As some of you know, I just bought a 1979 Phaeton Coupe from a guy in Cali. The car is almost exactly like the one in Goodfellas, plus thats where I first saw the car, and its a great movie, so I was thinking of paying tribute using my tabs. a few thoughts I've had are:

    WISEGUY
    GDFELLA(or GUDFELA) or some other spelling.
    MUNKYMN(or MNKYMAN)
    #1 COKE(ok, maby not really)

    Or maby something to do with the car it self:

    PHAETON
    425 V8
    FINE 79
    BIGBLOK(or BGBLOCK)

    Thats all I got, I need some opinions, and ideas, anybody got one?

    Henry's plates were 392-DIP, never thought of using those, cool idea!
    WISEGUY is also my first choice right now, any other opinions?

    DIP=dippin haha, lowriding term brother (well dippin is not DIP but that is what i thought when i seen it). you might want to check the DMV and make sure those arent taken.

    I always thought it would be real cool to have a car with plates CQB 241 because those were Christine's plates. It would look real cool on a big red Brougham!

    Get WISEGUY. That would be awesome. Nobody would know what in the heck 382 DIP would be. How much extra are vanity/personalized plates in TN? Here it's gonna cost me $15 extra to name my Mark VIII "THEOCHO."

    I like WISEGUY too.. or WIZEGUY if it's not available.. I can't believe I had a Phaeton (looked exactly like yours) and gave it away for free.. This was about 9 years ago... It ran perfectly and was in near-mint condition... I gave it to a kid who destroyed it and wound up in jail...

    How could you give a Caddy away for free?

    Re: What plates should I get for my '79 Phaeton? (Goodfellas car)

    I don't know.. I bought it for like $300.00 because the front passenger door wouldn't open. It was an easy fix but the car ran perfectly and was in great condition otherwise.. I guess being that it was old and for sale for a long time, the owners just wanted to get rid of it. So, when I gave it away, it wasn't much of a loss.. This was long before I really became a Cadillac fanatic. A year or two later, I bought a 1995 ETC and that's where I became hooked...

    Re: What plates should I get for my '79 Phaeton? (Goodfellas car)

    custom plates in TN are like $35 extra I think, last year I had custom ones put on my '83 Coupe Deville, and thats what it was then. also, another thing to think about, is that the car is 27, so it would qualify for antique plates, which I have been wanting to get on a car for years. but I don't think you can personalize antique plates, so I will probably not get them. Also, in TN you can have three choices when getting custon plates, incase the one you want is taken, my first two are WISEGUY or WIZEGUY, anybody have an idea of what to get for the third one? After thinking about it, 392-DIP would be a little pointless, because I even had to look it up to find it, so nobody would even have a clue.

    BTW, I know what dippin' is lol, I was a big lowrider guy for a while
