Vanity Plates?

Vanity Plates?

Hey folks,
I'm a first-time poster, but a long-time lurker.

I just ordered vanity plates for my Sig and thought I'd start a thread to see what other folks have gotten.
After much deliberation, I got "HC FREE" (California).

I've never had vanity plates before, but as an early adopter, I'm voting with my dollar (ok, many dollars). I want to spread the word for Tesla and electric cars in general, and I figure a vanity plate is a good way to introduce the driving public to an option they may not be aware of. "Hey, that there Aston-Martin is hydrocarbon free! - oh wait, what's a Tesla?"

- Dean

PS: I tried to get "AC 4 ME" but that became unavailable while I was in the process of checking out. If whoever got that is on this forum, you would have missed out if you were a minute slower ;)

Never got vanity plates before but the plates they issued me were so bad that I had to change them. Today I ordered:

In the bay area. Honk at me, I'll honk back.

Just got my notice of approval from Oregon - NIKOLA.

Also got my silver plate holders from Tesla Service - underneath NIKOLA the holder says TESLA.

Not the most creative but expresses my feelings for Tesla :-)
Even while they have yet to respond to my cracked windshield :-(

christine_orita | March 29, 2013

One more try.

Not the most creative plate but expresses my feelings for Tesla despite a cracked windshield that has yet to be fixed.

I have: CLN NRG (VA)

HzSoGood | April 2, 2013

Just ordered HZ SO GUD

Okay here's a simple one that shouldn't need too much explanation, but is fitting for the car. It just popped in my head just now...

[ S OME ]

It's a model S, that is awesome...
Haven't seen that one yet.

I relented and just picked up:


What the heck.

And my license plate frame says
Gas Stations

Are For Snacks

joe | April 5, 2013

I ordered (but have not yet received)

Hogfighter | April 7, 2013

Whalen, I got BATT MBL and have seen people read it in my rearview mirror, then laugh. Kinda fun.

Your chrome is still nice and shiny, given the outlet and conduit in the reflection!

Brian H | April 12, 2013

Is the plate meant to show that you're crabby?

PBEndo | April 12, 2013

@nickjhowe - What a coincidence! - I live right up the road from you (Boynton) and this morning I got KCKNGAS

johnhinshaw | April 12, 2013

Just ordered XPETROL for California plate

danej | April 12, 2013

My California plate is: LINUX

After all, the Tesla Model S interface is Linux based. =)


splitsec002 | April 12, 2013

Did the rest of you get a license plate holder that sales Tesla on it? I got a front license plate holder but not a rear one?

thanks Brian..

Brian H | April 13, 2013

Reece (OP);
Didn't you consider eliminating spaces? AC4ME, or AC 4ME or AC4 ME?

NKYTA | April 13, 2013
I'm massively surprised that you got LINUX, surely you must have had it prior to you MS?

dbullard | May 5, 2013

Got my Oregon plates a few weeks ago - NIKOLA. Works nicely with the Tesla silver plate frame, as the word TESLA appears directly under NIKOLA.

And then, of course, people ask me who Nikola is. :)

Brian H | May 5, 2013

I think someone tried that, but their state thought it wasn't PC enough. Good luck!

EVPatriot | May 6, 2013

I got "GR8 4 USA".

bsimoes | May 6, 2013

I got KCK GAS; I've gotten quite a few comments by people who are amused. When I told my delivery specialist what was coming, making it sound like KICK *SS, his expression was priceless. He said that he had delivered many cars with variations on that theme, but he had never heard the KICK *SS part before and had wondered why it was so popular! Twenty minutes later, he commented on it again. Very funny.

jasonsc | May 6, 2013

My wife has told me my USEJET A plates won't be too cool on this car... I'm still wavering!

Brian H | May 6, 2013

It's not nice to mess with DS' heads. They're under a lot of pressure.

Jgdixon | May 6, 2013

I have CLEANPWR on mine. Was considering EFFGAS

After the" Mach GoGoGo" phase with the Model S (Speed Racer reference below)...driving slow is the best. Who doesn't want to drive a Lazy Boy in The Wild?

1967 Speed Racer...

"Go Team"

"Speed, at 19 years of age (age mentioned in Challenge of the Masked Racer), is one of the youngest competitors on the international racing circuit. He's courageous and skillful with plenty of natural talent and quick reflexes. He also happens to be an expert martial artist and has impeccable morals. Speed does what's right even if it means losing or putting himself at risk. And that's a good thing, too - he'd never make it as a bad guy. For instance, in Challenge of the Masked Racer, Speed enters a race against his father's wishes. His imaginative alias? Happy Doodle!

Trixie is a 18 year old girl (age given in Junk Car Grand Prix) who also happens to be a helicopter pilot, navigation whiz (see her quick calculations in Fire Race determining the Mach Five had to average 160 mph to win), and is, wouldn't you know, crazy about Speed. She gets jealous easily when other girls catch Speed's eye, or even appear to! Trixie, like Speed, is also a well-trained, fearless martial artist. Even when the bad guys have the advantage in numbers, you can count on Trixie to keep her cool.

Racer X, unknown to the Racer family, is Speed's older brother Rex. Rex left years ago when he was only 18. Pops had spent years building a car -- red, number one -- which Rex used in a race at the Sunny Downs Track." Ages changed.

I just put in my application for plates in AZ.

jackhub | May 7, 2013

Kinda simple I guess. TESLA-S

danej | May 7, 2013


Yes, I've had the California LINUX plate since about 1993. I've considered selling a car with it attached just to see if I could get more for it, but since the Tesla runs Linux, I figure it's a perfect fit.
