Another interesting registration plate.

By poptop 12 January 2009 60

I wouldn’t want to stand in the way of free expression and believe the vehicle to be admirable in all respects, but was a little surprised that the ACT Government, via its Motor Vehicle Registry, allowed the ‘Driver with attitude’ component of this Registration plate (Click the image for a larger version). I understand this type of plate to be a snip at $2181.95.

Isn’t driving with attitude one of the things that gets up the nose of our Chiefly One?

What’s Your opinion?

Holden, dont get it

Not sure which plate combination you are referring to, but…

3M TA3 = EAT ME
ANU 52C = ANUS TO SEE
ANU 54U = ANUS FOUR YOU

*childish giggle*

(Oh, and apologies to Xbikee for using my imagination.)

Mr Caulfied; what’s wrong with “double-O” and an “F”? Are you reading things into numbers that are not letters?

Y3S 1 4M.

I was considering changing my name by deed poll to “Danman” because it is so much cheaper to get custom plates if they are actually your legal name, rather than a fully custom plate.

Needless to say my numberplate remains annonomous as Mrs Danman would not let me chage my name briefly 🙂

Assman would be a good one. It’s got to be on a big old 70’s Cadillac.

I’ve alway wondered since Seinfeld was on TV, if Kramer’s “ASSMAN” plates would be allowed here??!!

There’s a 4WD BMW getting around my area with the number plate ‘THIEF’. I’ve always wondered what point he/she was trying to make. Irony? Lawyer? Financial Advisor?

That person owns a home security business.

Mr Caulfied; what’s wrong with “double-O” and an “F”? Are you reading things into numbers that are not letters? Do you call “triple-O” in an emergency, or “triple-zero”?

Mr Diptrodon (Dipstick more like it); you hope that these “idiots” who get these plates get “what they deserve” …. someone sure pissed on your Christmas tree…

Thanks p1. I guess if the Gov is charging up to $5,000 plus, the open market might be a bit more.

old canberran 10:52 pm 12 Jan 09

Does anyone know what the going price is for a 3 figure ACT plate?

diprotodon 10:20 pm 12 Jan 09

A relative of mine in Queensland has “DR NO”, and paid $1800 close to ten years ago on a uni wage to put it on a Suzuki Baleno Hatch. He got his just desserts when an ambo on the freeway ran up his arse because he was paying attention to the rego plate, and not the fact that he had stopped in heavy traffic.
I have no sympathy for my relative, and I hope that idiots who get those rego plates get what they deserve in higher insurance and more collisions.

Maybe the attitude one of respect for other road users.

TI3VOM reminds me of a classic picture of a car with plates “X32 IARO”

That BITE ME plate has been around for years, first saw it on a Falcon (EF/EL model) back when Drew Carey show was on TV (Mimi’s favourite saying was “bite me”). Maybe that’s where they got the idea for the plate from.

At the Summernats there was a fully sik BMW with ACT plates ONDOLE and a large Centrelink sticker on the rear window.

Doctor Evil 7:38 pm 12 Jan 09

Can’t you see that plate is screaming out – “EVERYBODY LOOK, LOOK AT MY, um, commodore…..”

There was an XR6/8 Falcon getting about a coupla years ago with “TI3VOM”. Looked good in the rearview mirror 🙂
