Seen any good personalized license plates on 911s?

As I'm (grrrrr) patiently waiting for the 911 I bought to arrive from Chicago, I'm trying to decide whether I want a personalized plate or not.

Anyone see anything worth repeating?

The only thing I've come up with that's not already taken here in Arizona is: MYMACHV ... a Speed Racer reference. Any other suggestions? We get seven characters to play with here.

You can't have mine.

I just realized I'd been using that handle online for years, and that people were starting to call me "olds" and "skull" or "skool" IRL, so I went with that.

Imagine if you were a Navy fighter pilot. What would the other pilots name you?

I'm having SCWDP put on my tags when I get home.

I figure in a year or two, there'll be one in every state.

Couldn't resist mine when it became available - laws are different in the UK!

After I converted the targa to a wide body, i wanted a custom plate, so i showed up at the dmv on dec 31(last day you can get one) two hours of different names it came between speeeed and Caution, I thought Speeeed would be cool because i just painted the car speed yellow, my daughter didnt like speed with four e's so we got Caution, not sure if i like it, she does and i guess thats all that counts, Kevin Caution reminds me of a flashing light, i guess the car is yellow

My Plates

I have "VS 911" - not real creative, but I've had them for almost 15 years now. Another 911 in the neighborhood reads "BF DEAL".

In case you can't make mine out in my avatar, see attached.

I was amazed this plate was still available in CA in early 2000. Well worth the extra $30/year, for me.

Cheers!

C.

If I get a personalized plate, I'd opt for something like: "I Dunno" so if you're speeding, and the state tropper calls in your plate, he'll say, "Plate number: I dunno."

Ok, it's a bit silly, but it would work for me.

For my 944: I'd go with Poorsche...

My good buddy, a '66 911 Owner, bought a beater Ford at an Insurance Auction that had the plate MVN 911. He's still trying to figure out how to get it switched to his Porsche.

i have 2 personalized plates on my 911's:

"rick g" and "NYAAA". i suppose if i'm ever running from the law in porsche #1, the first one will not be of much use to me. but if i'm on the run in porsche #2, the 2nd one will come in handy.

What about "AIRCOOLED".

Or "B6G71FE38B" to make it hard to read when you blast by a police car with 125 mph.

When I first bought my 69' 911, before turning it into a race car, it had plates (well they were missing or hidden in rust) that said:
"N X T C"
Maybe at on time since I had it towed back to my house, dented and rusted. It took 3 1/2 years to get it back to X T C.

Not exactly 'personalized', but I found this original 1971 plate at an antique dealer. Since my car is over 25 years old, I was able to register it in Michigan as a 'collector vehicle'. This enables one to use a vintage license plate. There is a one-time $35 fee. I never have to pay another fee, buy annual tags or register the car again as long as I own it!!
