I have been thinking about this a lot lately and almost started a thread on the subject:). Does anyone know of a site that will let me check availability in Florida? I'm curious about what others come up with as well.

Haven't ordered one, but I might like to see:

LOWTUSH

Seems appropriate.

I'm gonna get this one for Florida:

US ELISE

Since I don't plan on getting it until I get my car, PLEASE no one else take it.

Thanks !!

Well, in Maryland, you get 7 spaces for your tag. You used 8. In Maryland, your tag would read:

USELISE

Some might think you "Use Lise" (Lice)

Others may agree that your impractical little sportscar is:

USELESS

I was considering "USN EA" (US Navy - Electronic Attack)

until I realized that some people might think the EA meant Executive Assistant... :( ...and I plan on getting out of the Navy...

I also like UPSHIFT and LOTUS8R.

I have a plate in mind that has nothing to do with Lotus or Elise, but I haven't ordered it yet because I don't want to pay to have the plate for 6 months or more until the car shows up. And I don't want to put it on my current car and then go through a hassle to change it over.

In California, some plates have 6 characters (e.g., the Arts plate that I want, with a palm tree and sun, very Kalifornia-like) and some have 7, giving you some flexibility (and of course, you can have fewer characters on the vanity plates, if you wish). And you can check your prospective combos on-line. I played around with Elise and Lotus themed plates and found some that were ok and available, but nothing that blew me away. Who knows, though, I seem to have several months to change my mind.

In California you can order a plate ($50) and just pay the annual fee ($25) and it doesn't have to be on a car. So, 6 months is really only $12.50 and knowing how things go in CA most of the "good" combos will be gone VERY quickly.

In my mind, if you're in CA and thinking about getting a plate then to me it would be worth the $$$s to get what you want.

I never understood why people get plates with the name of the car/manufacturer on it. Does it not already have that info already on the car? Plus, that's not origional. Maybe it's just be, but I never understood it. You'd see a guy driving a Trans Am, and he'd have Trans Am on his plate. Why?:confused: Hope I don't offend anyone, maybe I'm missing the point of plates like that.

As for my plate, I'll use the one I have on my S2K. It says Tidal on it. My screen name on the boards I got to.

As for Florida and being able to check plates, they don't have it online. You have to got to the DMV and check.

Well.... technically, "modern" refers to a minimalist style of design (i.e. bauhausian) as opposed to "contemporary", which refers to something of our time.

Thanks, Kiyoshi. Good info. I may have to go for it.

The one I'm thinking of is "I XLR8"

Of course now someone else is going to run out and get it in AZ.

I've seen that XLR8 plate before. It's not original.

Why not go with MSTRB8 instead?

One of my favorites is FIATX19 .... on the back of a Ferrari 246 Dino!

I was going to get:

SMALL D

on my plate. Everyone is going to be thinking I'm just compensating for one anyway. Might as well meet them halfway.
