Funny, given the fact that much of the world (including Britain, where you can sell plates with number/letter combinations that mean nothing to anyone from anywhere else, for megabucks) seems to be mad keen on expressing themselves with custom license plates, but I guess I just don't have the 'cute plate' gene.
Reminds me of when people name boats (they all seem to take a double dose of 'aren't I cute' pills) and come up with trite labels that amuse (probably only) themselves.
I guess you either feel it or you don't. The fact that I don't saves me a few bucks every year as they charge extra for custom plates here (I would guess they do most places). I'll settle for having my coupe serial number in my plate number, a matter of happenstance when the dealer laid out a bunch of plates and let me choose which one I wanted.
Maybe it is the same missing gene that makes naming inanimate objects like cars with human names also seem silly to me? Oh well. No offence to people that do get their jollies that way.
