    I said "Yes....she would think it's hilarious" because she wouldnt care, but she probably wouldn't think it was "hilarious"... mildly amusing at best.

    I don't currently have a vanity plate, but have been kicking around some possibilities. Texas offer 7 letter plates every once in awhile. Gives lots of options.

    I just think a gal driving a truck with Busy Beaver (BZY BVR) would be hilarious.... :D

    She thought it would be fun and cute to get vanity plates:

    OH MAI

    (a play on "oh my")

    Little did she realize that if you were in front of her and looked in your rear view mirror, it read:

    IAM HO

    how did they approve that?! that's badass!

    ..i know this shouldn't turn into a vanity plate bs/story thread, but i have to give honorable mention to a murdered out and well modified GTI i saw the other day with plates that said "EFURVTEC" . . i thought it was hilarious.

    $20??? Wow, that's hella cheap! The cheapest one here is 75 bucks and the most expensive one is over 100, depending upon plate style. THEN you have to pay an additional 35 every year.
