Vanity License Plate Gallery
Bonfire of the Vanities: The latest vanity license plates we’ve run across
How often does it happen to you? You’re sitting in traffic behind a car with an obscure vanity plate that obviously is supposed to mean something, yet you spend all that time thinking about the seemingly psychotic collection of letters and numbers is supposed to mean? It happens to us constantly, with the plates usually on a pedestrian vehicle like a minivan or a status symbol like a BMW 7-series.
But when it comes to Mustang owners and other car guys and girls, our vanity plates are usually right to the point—you know right away what it’s supposed to mean, and chuckle that you didn’t think of it first. Normally, the plate describes the car it’s on, like 1FAST1 or something similar. Then there are more subtle plates that give you pause and make you think before the meaning comes out.
As many events as we travel to each year, we come across a ton of the best and brightest vanity license plates, and put this gallery together from just the last couple of months. So as you lay back in your chair with that Thanksgiving turkey tryptophan coma settling in, peruse these plates. Maybe they’ll give you an idea for your next car.
