I've been wanting to get DTO LUV for awhile. Just hasn't been a priority.

When I moved to Colorado I lucked out and got "KAT" in my license plate which is cool because I have a cat. I too would like to have the 007 for my numbers.

Although I won't be bidding on Warren's car, I do have my eye on this little gem to head up my new Metra commuter train:

Buffett's Lincoln Town Car Fetches $73,200 in Charity Auction

The Lincoln, with fewer than 14,000 miles on the odometer, has a beige leather interior. It comes with Buffett's personalized "Thrifty" license plate. Five-year-old, low- mileage Town Cars in top condition are valued at about $12,000 by the Kelley Blue Book.

Caught this one about a month ago on a Ford Escape, iirc, in NW O. Business owner or just a fan?

I've seen NVR L8 (or is it NVR LTE?)  I don't remember which but I've seen it a few times now.

I assume it's a wizzard, as Gandalf reminds us, a wizzard is never late he arrives precisely when he wants to.

Heh. I've probably not captured that one because they're speeding and never stopped. :)  I've seen several advertising that they are late.

Those are cute.  I've never had a vanity plate.  I wonder what I would put if I did.
"Crossroads Village" down the street from "Aksarben Village?" Does "Crossroads" have any meaning to people 20 and under? "Dodge At 72nd" is a type name I like better, drawing from the excitement of the iconic, special Omaha intersection. My $.02.

I saw one today on a Ford Escape that read SPNGBOB (Sponge Bob). It made me chuckle.

I saw another variant of that last year out at the wildlife safari.

Today I uploaded my 500th vanity plate to flickr! It was on a Lexus which is par for the course. I think I've seen more Lexuses (Lexi?) than any other make with vanity plates.

Several weeks ago I saw a De Lorean with a vanity plate that read "FLUX IT." As a Back to the Future fan, it made my day. I don't suppose you have a photo of that one do you?

Be on the look out for '74 UFO' as well.

I 'used' to be a big car buff... and one of my favorite cars is the Detomasa Pantera (the car attached to this license plate)... they are very rare, but there are a couple in Omaha... very cool cars with a center mounted 351W EFI V-8 (incredible handling).

Must be a sci-fi vibe I'm picking up on lately... on the heels of the Star Trek plate, I bring you Star Wars ...

It has nothing to do with being smug.  It's just a side effect of being better than everyone else. :;):

I am all about having a fuel efficient, environmentally responsible car, that's why I bought the car I have..... I won't put it on my plate though.
