Custom Plates?

April 16, 2009

On my drive home the other day, I saw a custom license plate that said “ForMom”. Ok, so it didn’t really say “ForMom” but since I’m about to tease this person, I’d rather not embarrass ’em too much. 8)

What are your thoughts on a custom plate that says something like “To ____” or “For ___”? Personally, I think it’s great. It shows effort. It shows thoughtfulness. It shows that special someone that you really care about them.

But what about that special someone you actually bought the car for? So shame!

The novelty and impact of the plate is pretty much pau the very second after the gift is given ain’t it? Yet, they still have to drive around with that thang for the rest of the car’s existence.

You can’t exactly go and trade it in for a “regular” license plate. That’s like a slap in the face to the person who bought you the dope G-ride. So you’re stuck driving around a car that people assume you couldn’t afford yourself. Lose money!

It did get me a thinkin’ though. WWJD WWWWEOD? LOL! That’s the worst acronym ever. It’s “What Would the World Wide Ed Ohana Do” for those who don’t have ESP. So… what it is? WWWWEOD? 😛

Talk to me!
* What custom plate(s) would you get and why? (6 character limit)
* Already got one? Share!
* What are some good ones you’ve seen on the road?

I once saw one that said “WWW”. I was jealous! Ha! Then I thought… do I really want people to easily identify me by my plates, right after I “accidentally” cut them off? 😛

P.S. Here’s the City’s site to search and apply for your own Personalized Plates.
