personalized license plate

personalized license plate

My wife and I wanted a new personalized license plate that would highlight our electric car but not be too aggressive so as to anger the "anti-electric car" crowd. We chose NOSMGCK (no smog check) and ordered it from our state DMV. We got a letter informing us that it was ready to be picked up with a note that said "you will need to get a new emission test." There is a joke in there somewhere.

Good one! Even though you might be exempt, I would consider taking it in for the emissions check just for giggles. By the way, my plate is "SOL PWR" (Solar Power), but my electric is 3rd party wind power!

Nice to see their sense of humor.

I like the more aggressive approach myself. Just checked the CA DMV site, looks like GREENAF is taken but GRN AF isn't. Of course, they could always reject it based on content.

I have SUNERGY on my Model 3 in NJ. Tesla solar panels and 2 Powerwalls, so the car is mostly solar powered. On good days.

I keep waiting for the YouTube video that shows somebody taking their car in for the mandatory equipment check in some states and enabling the turn-signal activated emissions test mode, and waiting for the inspector to test the signals.

I had a massive list that I had to narrow down since the vanity plate I choose here in FL only allows 5 characters. I settled on "AMPME". I wanted "AMPM3", but someone beat me to it. (shakes fist) Damn you some one out there!

"MCFLY" was not available. The best one I have seen in FL so far is "PLUGD N". I was immediately jealous! It kinda has a dual meaning which makes it even sweeter.

This whole caring about your license plate thing is what happens when: 1. you always wanted an electric car 2. you watched a documentary about electric cars called "who killed the electric car?" and it made you angry and made you want one even more 3. you finally ordered one, but waited 2.5 years to finally get it.

We went with 86D OIL

Brian B | February 22, 2019

went with ROM2 4 this time, after starting out with RD33M3D (though afterwards felt I should have put RDEEM3D or R3DEEMD the first time)
