Personalized Plates
« on: January 29, 2012, 09:04:51 PM »
Well, just ordered a set of plates for Nellie Bell. I currently have SHAG E on her right now. I was just using her as a holder till we go Shaggy done. Things changed and Shaggy is no longer with us so I wanted to get rid of those plates. They just don't look right on Nellie Bell. So in about 8 Weeks or so (Hopefully before Knott's, I will have NEL1 BEL for her!! :D I had to go with a 1 intstead of an I. It was the only way to make it looks somewhat like Nelie! LOL

Sure hope I luck out and get them before Knots! Course, I will have to register her for Knott's using the SHAG E plate, but I'm sure they will understand the different plate if I get the new one's!

You can't have 2 spaces in a plate. I tried! LOL

Also forgot to mention that Nellie finally made it in the garage! She has one paying job in front of her, then it's her turn under the knife! She will be getting a new grille, valve cover gasket, and brake booster. Then just a general cleaning to get ready for Knott's! :D

My car is all red, with black accents.

Was kicking around the idea of getting "SATAN", as it kinda fits the car, and I can only have 5 characters on the "Early American" plate.

Kimmy, you wouldn't have to do two spaces. NELY BEL. lol Get one with the poppies on the bottom and a heart between NELY and BEL.

Otherwise, I'll see those plates and see NEL (ONE) BEL and won't be able to get it out of my head and then I'll subconsciously call Nellie that! lol Sadly that's the way my mind rolls.  ;D

Those plates with the hearts and all cost more to keep each year. I'm cheap when it comes to personalized plates! LOL  If I find I don't like it I can alway turn it back in after I feel I got my money's worth! LOL

I'm planning to get PINTO on an antique plate when I re-register mine in 2 months. I've seen one other Pinto on the road in this state, so it should still be available when I go to get it.

Can't get personalized plates on antique tags in Florida, either.  I can't stand the colors - Ucky blue w/ white letters.  The tags look antique!  I had '79 PINTO' on mine for about 7 years, then went to the Air Force plates and had my specialty code emblazone on - '2A373' for tactical aircraft maintenance craftsman (F-15).  One of my 79 PINTO tags currently resides on the front bumper for show!

Ok, got a letter from DMV. They denied my plates choice. Said I couldn't use a number in place of a letter. I'm glad in a way. I liked Becky's plate idea better. LOL I tried for it but it wasn't available, so I went with NELY BLL.  That is if I can ever get their web site to except my payment. Keep getting a server error. UGGHHH. LOL

How stupid!  The tag on my Taurus is also a FL Air Force personalized tag, reads A1MH1 (Aim High) - AIMHI was taken.  That was the slogan when I enlisted.  Had no problem getting it.
However, when I was stationed in NC, the State absolutely denied anything i tried to do with the number 13...  either in munerical or spelled formats.  It conflicted with the State numbering system, even when used with other letters...

I'm not going the personal plate way. My parents owned a 77 wagon brand new & the plates were in the garage until I got them for Carlisle last year. I am looking at getting those plates re-registered to Harold II since they are period correct & from what I read I can get them registered instead of the antique plates Ohio provides. Gotta look into it more though.

I never thought to get personalized plates for any of mine, well I did but cookieboy won't fit, only 7 letter/number allowed here in Minnesota and you still have to licence them each year. I prefer collector plates, no licence required each year. But last year when I got my new toy....

I was pretty happy to see they came with the Old Man logo on them. The woman at the DMV said the plates wouldn't have it with more than 4 characters.

Ok, got my plates for Nellie Belle. :D

I transferred the Shag E plates to Sunny for now. I'm not sure if I want to keep them as the idea for them is no longer going to happen. I may sell them if someone wants them. Not sure yet though. LOL



And now Nellie has her new plates. Much better!! :D
