Mine's not real cool, but I like it. I bought my car at Dale Sharp Honda in Topeka, Kansas. Even though I've sinced moved to Maryland, I still have the original dealer license plate surround because it says on the top of it "A SHARP Car" with the word sharp stylized and bigger than the other words. And since I do think my Insight is quite sharp, it'll always stay there.
Best licencse plate frame I've ever seen was on an Audi back when I was a kid in Georgia. On the top it said "I have an innie" and on the bottom of the frame it said "but I drive an Audi". I've always liked that, thought it was a funny little barb.
I am willing to setup a store with some different items, but what about an official InsightCentral.net shop? Sure, I wouldn't mind the extra income (especially working in the tech industry I'll be lucky if my current job lasts thru this month :? ) but I would think a well known name on the store would bring in more business and hits to the site. Just a thought.
I almost got "NOT AFV" for not alternative fuel vehicle in protest of the fact that many hybrids in Arizona had managed to get the special alternative fuel plates, along with the $34 a year registration (in contrast to the $320 I just paid). But, I guess they are slowly taking them away as I haven't seen one in months.
Other creative ones:
70MPG likely taken in most states
HYBRID Likely taken
D CELLS Another one to mess with peoples minds
.25 CD Ehh, no one would get it
Mine says "GLITCH 1" as it was transfered from my other vehicle. I'm getting "GLITCH 2" for my Mom's 2000 Eclipse and another "GLITCH 3" for my brothers ride. I was thinking of putting a banner across the front 6" tinting strip. I was considering "HYBRID" in big letters and maybe "GASOLINE-ELECTRIC" above it or something. Not sure. I was also tempted to put "HONDA INSIGHT" or just "INSIGHT" or maybe just my nickname "GLITCH" as my last vehicle had that across the front. Most friends think I should just leave it alone. I think maybe a custom license plate frame that says "Self Charging - No cords" across the top and "My car sips on gas, your car sucks" across the bottom. As I always get the "power cord" question. Not sure yet.
Well I think the original post was for the frame around the plate, but I wanted to share my thoughts on my possibly original idea for a license.
Living in Vermont and it being the Green Mountain State, I thought 'Greener' or 'GreenVT' would be good choices. I was also thinking of 'Cleaner' as a nice plate. However, I don't think paying 30 or 40 bucks a year for personalized plates is very practical.
