Have you ever been stopped at a red light and the car in front of you has a personalized license plate, often called a vanity plate/tag, on their car and you sit there trying to determine its meaning? Some can be so personal that you simply can’t figure them out by the time the light turns green. Others are instant hits and really easy to figure out, but the tough ones, the ones that make you finally go “ah ha!” are the genius ones we love.

We have vanity plates on our Mustang and our Factory Five Cobra, and both of them, while fairly easy to figure out their meanings, were actually quite tough to come up with. We made lists, we queried our friends as to whether they understood the meaning or if “Joe or Jane Average” would get the plate’s message, etc.

We know our Mustang fans love a good vanity plate as well, and we always enjoy a stroll through a show field checking out the vanity plates on all the Mustangs. We built this gallery of over 150 custom plates that we spotted at this year’s Mustang Week Meet ‘n’ Greet event to hopefully give you some ideas for your own vanity plate. Already got one? Then share it with us on our social pages!
