Vanity plate ideas

I'm thinking about getting a vanity plate for my 240sx. Here's a couple ideas I came up with. I only get 6 letters. Here's what I've come up with, feel free to add any ideas you might have.

-V8HAHA
-OM NOM
-ROFL
-M3 LOL
-SNAIL

vanity plates are 99.9% a bad idea unless the plate says 66 GOAT or 68 GT500KR or something like that

There's a reason why they're called "vanity" plates

I think anyone in an M3 would be laughing at you, not the other way around.

Oh of course with their pointy guido shoes and cinnamon interior laughing saying to themselves how classy they are to justify getting owned by a car that costs under a third of what they paid. I'd find it hard to swallow getting walked by a 240 too

^^^That mentality is exactly why they will be laughing.

Keep in mind that plates which rip on other cars are just going to get you keyed or other trouble.

if someone is willing to key a car over a plate then they can deal with the consequences of it, one being keying a car of a guy with a 1911 .45 with 7 hollowpoints in the mag.

My roomate thinks it would be funny to see someone in a crappy old 80's rust bucket rock the TRSTFND plate, haha. Oh the irony to that one.

You can have JRZSHOR in that case. Or CLT1911 or SR20DET or S14SLVA

I wanted OM NOM until I saw a bunch of people with it. V8HAHA is mostly aimed at the country douche bags in the trucks thinking that because it's bigger it's faster, or the rees in mustang gt's around here thinking they're the baddest

I just ordered "SCHNL" for my SLK55. In FL they have specialty plates with a special interest logo on the left side and 5 characters to the right.

My dad works for a defense co. so law enforcement supports me, i figured id support it. and if i get pulled over having a pba plate cant hurt!

I personally wouldn't dedicate my car via license plate towards bashing any particular demographic.

Perhaps you should try to make your license plate have a more positive message?

Maybe S14MED or S14MIN

Cool Custom

I Custom made my plates, so they are a bit longer and a bit lower looks just like the original, perfect copy besides the size and they mean Emergency Medical Responder just in case. not offensive just a normal plate. something that means something to you, that is what I think.

Who will go to prison, or get the death penalty if he uses it to protect his car.
