Dying Fast

Shocker that this group is letting an interesting idea die quickly. We never had much of an attention span. But I won't give up.

I've noticed that more and more license plates are customized and some even indicate the type of car.
1) Is this necessary? I know you drive a BMW. The big clue is the large BMW letters on the trunk. Why waste you money putting it on your license plate?

And how did you get enough money to by a BMW being such a huge idiot?
2)If we allow this to happen, shouldn't there be a cut-off? Yesterday I saw a personalized license plate for a Honda CRV. Should you really advertise that not only do you own a Honda CRV but that you think so much of the car that you get personalized plates. And I'm not even sure what the cut-off should be. Should we let nice cars do and not cheap cars, or should we expect more from people who own nice cars?

Cal - I don't think this blog has died. Interesting ideas come in waves. We just need to make sure that the likes of Bart, Timmy, Ewald, etc. are aware of the site for when they want to post.

As for the license plate thing -- nice that the BMW one had a frame around it that said John Carrol Alum. Do we know any jackass JC alums?

I saw a Honda Prelude the other day whose license plate said, swear to God, "PRELUDE." Why?

By the way, are any of our friends pompous enough to be driving a BMW? Or short enough to be compensating for something?

You can tell within five minutes if you are driving in a state that allows you to vanitize your license plate for no additional cost. Virginia is the worst. All of a sudden you will be stuck in traffic and over 50% have vanity plates.

On another note the Smoking gun website always keeps lists of plates that were outlawed by each state. Usually, someone orders a plate like "bukake," the DMV has no idea what it means so they issue the plate.

Then a month later the DMV gets like five letters from offended Mormons and pulls the plate. The site lists the plate names and the letters. Pretty funny reading. Here is a link.
