  2. Jeez, it's just a Plymouth. It's not like it's a bathtub Porsche or a Jag-u-ahr before Ford bought it. Someone evidently has very low standards.

      Jag-u-ahr! Ha, ha! I hate the way they pronounce it on the commercials. It was always just "jag-war" when I was a kid.

    sadly, this is real.

  5. Oh, I'm sure it's a decent (and expensive) car. But he's still a tool.

  6. I wish I had a picture of it, but I saw a lady the other day with a liscence plate frame that said, "I'm not spoiled, just well taken care of," on her MINI VAN!

    Way to raise the bar.

  8. LOL..now that's funny. I just love vanity plates..and by love I mean detest. Sometimes they just don't make sense to me. I have seen a car that had the name of the actual car on the tag. It said 300 Z and it WAS a 300 Z. Way to waste money..lol..no one would have ever figured out it was a 300Z if your tag hadn't told up, Sherlock!

  10. How creepy that we would both put up a vanity plate post on the same day.

    ReplyDelete
  11. HAHAHA.

    I would only put that on my plate if I had... say a really ugly station wagon.

    ReplyDelete
  12. All vanity plates spell the same thing to me - ASSHL.

  13. There was a Camaro running around here for awhile with a vanity plate "IROC"...

    The problem was, it was just a plain old Camaro, not an IROC. When it drove by, you could hear it only had a V6.

    Wishful thinking I suppose.

  14. I went out on a date with a guy who had his name as his plate. He couldnt understand my reaction (I think it was along the lines of "you've got to be kidding me!"). He lasted a dinner and I dont think he recovered - well I didnt either!

  15. The only one I ever saw that I loved was on the front of a 427 Cobra. It said TI 3V0M.

  16. Also, Bridge - that would be awesome.

  17. Keva - I used to work with a guy who put his car type on his plates (I think it said 88 VETTE). But then he totalled his Vette and was driving around in a camaro that called itself a Vette. Needless to say, he was a douchebag.

    Am I missing something, but wouldn't he be MORE of a dick if he were driving an even more expensive variety of hey-look-at-me type douche car with this plate? To be sure though, you don't need to be a urologist to identify this man.

    My favorite was at my high school. One girl was told if she got all A's, she would get a car. She did, and her license plate was
    STRAITA
    On a camaro.
    And not even a new one.

  23. Agree on the vanity plate thing. Though once way back, I saw a Renault "Le Car" (if you're old enough to remember those), that said "Le Plate".

    Thought that was pretty good...

  24. If you're gonna flaunt your car, make sure you actually HAVE a decent car TO flaunt!

  25. There's a local guy that we keep running into (unfortunately, not literally). His license plate reads, "U NV ME."

    We crack up every time we pass him. I've never actually seen him with anyone else in the car. Is anyone surprised?

  27. WOW a Chrysler Crossfire! DREAM BIG!!

    I'm wondering what they did to deserve that?!? Mow the lawn? Take out the garbage? Deliver pizza? But I digress (to old Patrick Dempsey movies apparently). Maybe they just worked for it-like all of us do for what we want (but don't go out and stamp our reasoning all up on the ass of it).

    This makes me think of the idea I once had to create a scrolling marquee you can mount in your back window and change at will. I'd love to see you pull in front of him and flash your reply. HA. Take that Loserboy (or girl).

    I'm convinced more and more every day: people are strange. freakishly strange.

  28. Awesome!!
    I knew a girl when I was in high school that had a white ( of course, it's a girl) Eagle Talon. She added her own vanity plates that read "bitchin" We'd see her coming in her bitchin Talon and snicker because it was just dumb.

    Ok that was in fact bitchin in 1988, however I ran into her not to long ago in a Walmart parking lot. Still driving her Bitchin Talon.She was screaming at her kids to get into the car. Bitchin took on a whole new meaning :)

    The only vanity plate I have seen that I would actually put on my car said

    AMLOST

    me too. But you could have bought a GPS for the same price as the plate. But I did laugh and the thought that the person was a jerk didn't cross my mind...but I agree. Vanity plates usually do = jerkfaces behind the wheel.

  32. Is that a practical car in the land of ice and snow in which you dwell? Maybe it should say SLP SLDN.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yes they are deserved.........deserved to be run over by a Big Ass 4WD Ford

  34. Maybe she won it in the divorce?

    Hey, now, I have a vanity plate. WRPDMND

    Of course, I'm an asshole, too.

    ReplyDelete
  35. If I were to get a vanity plate, it would read NOROMU.

    (read it backwards)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I agree that it could be a well deserved part of a divorce settlement - in mine - I got the kids (thankfully) and half of all his bills - my "media" room was a small television and a broken boom box - I didn't need a fancy car or vanity plates though - I got freedom and no more anger and hate.

    couldn't wait

  37. Once, in Tucson I saw a truck with UZI4YOU. I'm very pro-gun, but that's not a very nice sentiment - more like gangbanger mentality. He must get hell when pulled over by the cops.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think my husband decided to marry me early in our relationship when we were on our first road trip together. There was a new red Mustang in front of us with a plate that read "GARYS GT". I announced that Gary must have a small penis and a bad combover. DH blew Coke out of his nose and couldn't talk for three minutes. He still thinks it's hilarious (I guess he's easily amused) and every time we see a vanity plate with any braggadocio, he asks me to assess the driver.

    BTW zpunk --

    the fact that you call it a "beemer" tells me all I need to know before you admit you have a vanity plate...my BMW is referred to by its proper name.

    ReplyDelete
  39. YEAAHHHHH....ABOUT THAT.....

    ReplyDelete
  40. Amy, it was a guy, so I'm assuming he didn't get it in his divorce settlement...but hey, you never know. Yours is pretty funny. I have nothing against vanity plates in general. If this guy's plate said "UNDESRVD" I would have laughed.

    Also, it appears I have rich people reading my blog. I only ask that you remember me in your will.

    SATAN

    On a very new, shiny black BMW driven by a very young, punk goth kid. What took away from whatever "coolness" there might have been is that you know mommy and daddy footed the bill for that car.

  43. a guy I knew with VW Golf tried to get BALLS on his plate, but the fascists at the DMV denied him.

    ReplyDelete
  44. This lady had a similar problem -- but even more unfair, since she had it for ten years.

    ReplyDelete
  45. That story about the old lady is hilarious. I wonder if they would have let her put her last name on a plate, though?

    I just saw an Acura yesterday with a license plate that said FORGIVE. Any thoughts on that one...?

  48. I have a vanity plate - it reads "SUN GRL". You know, 'cause of my sunny disposition and all. People are always waving & hollering at me when I drive - "hey sun girl!" Funny stuff.

    Oh and by the way, it's an '08 Sebring Convertible, fully loaded and completely cool. I'm leaving it to JV in my will.

  50. In Idaho you can always tell where one is from the first two letters on their plate. 5B is Blaine County or Sun Valley area. People from Blaine County who come down to slum at the local Cosco ALWAYS have vanity plates because they think us valley people are too stupid to know that they are ashamed to be "5B'ers"...like their five cases of wine are not a dead give-a-way.

  52. what a loser.
    I recently saw a Nissan Altima driving around in Denver. Right beneath the logo on the trunk that said Altima was the license plate. It said ALTIMA. Seriously? It's an ALTIMA? A real live ALTIMA? Wow!!!

    I once saw a post on your blog about how to tell if you live in the sticks. It turns out there is more than one way.

    Hey Jen, I bet you call you call your BMW "my bay em vay." Back before BMWs were driven by people who knew cars and before yuppies were invented I had a '69 2002. And knew someone who called it a "bay em vay 2002" because he couldn't figure out how to say 2002 in German.

    Probably a Mopar Moron driving a piece of Chryco Cr*p like that Crossfire or worse yet a Sebring convertible. .

    Yeah, whoever has that plate must be a prick.

    HOWEVER, y'all are aware that the Crossfire convertible is basically the Mercedes SLK, right? Its NOT "just a Plymouth", Becs....

    Not to mention, it all depends where you come from. To someone who makes 3 mil a year, a $80K Jaguar may be a POS. To someone who makes $30K/year a Mustang GT may be a great car and something to be proud off. I think if someone wants to be a snob and make fun of someone's car they may want to be careful: there's always going to be people who will laugh at whatever YOU hold precious..... be it a Crossfire or a Jaguar.

    Gawd, I hate snobs..... BTW, why is it that mostly women are laughing at the car choices (Becs, Leigh, Jillian, Dawn)? Is it YOUR money that buys your Ferraris and Bentleys (presumably you would not drive such crap as a BMW 3 or 5 series), or your husbands? Just curious....
