What Does Your License Plate Say About You?

By
Real Estate Agent with Bean Group / Franklin

New Hampshire is known for having the most vehicles with vanity license plates than any other state in the Country, or so I've been told. Having paid special attention to them in the last few days, I have to ask the question, 'What are some of you trying to say on those plates?'

Some of them are pretty self-explantory: People's names; The owner's thoughts on life; or advertising one's business...

I think my plate is one of those: (In case it is not self explanatory... I sell real estate)

Some are not so self explanatory. I saw one this morning that said: TGIFF   I wondered if they very enthusiastically Thanking God It was Friday, or whether saying, Thank Goodness, it's French Fries.

Then there was the little Dodge Neon with this plate: (this is not the exact plate but you get the idea)

I would expect this plate to be on something like this truck, wouldn't you?

not this:

So, again I ask the question... What Does Your License Plate Say About You? If you don't have one, not to worry. Here's your chance to make one up :-)

Oh, and If you were curious like I was, this one hasn't been taken yet:

But this one has: IMAWNNR

Additional Information that may or may not be useful to you:

If you are thinking of purchasing a vanity plate in New Hampshire, you can only do this at your next scheduled registration, but if you want to research what names are presently available, you can go to the New Hampshire Department of Safety's Registration Bureau.

If you actually need to look up the owner information on a plate, in order to locate someone who was involved in a crash, for example, you can find that information, too, at License-PLATE-Search.

OK, I'll have some fun...

I tell people that if they can't figure out my license plate, they wouldn't get it if I told them what it means:

NYPRRTHD  (New York plate)

Hi Louis,

Thanks for playing along! I love a challenge. We are only allowed to have 7 letters on our plates. Let me ask you two questions. One: Do the first two letters stand for New York? And if you had to state your message in only 7 letters, which one would you remove?

If I only had 7 characters I'd have to remove the NY, and put a space between PRRT and HD.

There are TONS of vanity plates out here in California - many of them I have NO idea what they mean, but quite often they're pretty funny. I don't have one myself, but I think I'd go for... LVNLIFE! Or maybe, ARLOVER. ;-)

Mykel - Not NY Party Hard, but those of us who subscribe to the lifestyle do love a good party.  After an evening in Margaritaville I tend to say that it's "My own damned fault," and go to grab a Cheeseburger.   Enough hints?

This is fun :-)

Mykel... LIVLIFE is already taken here in New Hampshire, but I think that would be a great plate to have. Just take it one day at a time right?

And Louis, those were some great hints. I'm a Jimmy Buffett fan myself, so you must be a New York Parrot Head. Am I right?

You got it Frances!  My computer desktop is usually a photo of a beach, boating, or scuba diving.  I also make a killer margarita.

Louis,

When your confirmation email came through that my guess was correct, my husband and I were just leaving a wedding, and the song that was playing was "Wasting Away in Margaritaville". Maybe the Universe is trying to tell me it's time to head for the Keys :-) Take care and thanks again for playing along!

How could you let your Bean Group license plate frame cover the best motto that says it all.

"LIVE FREE OR DIE"   We are #1 in vanity plates.

Frances, we learn something new every day. I thought Delware had the most vanity plates

Hi Janice,

Lots of folks are telling me that their state has the most number of vanity plates. It really doesn't mean much I suppose, other than perhaps there are less bumper stickers on cars as a result of the plates :-)

Ross... I explained in my post that I use my plate to advertise my business so that I can live free or die, however, I do have a decal in the window of my car that shows the motto 'Live free or Die" (with a picture of a moose), because I do appreciate our motto and wish to display it. Thanks for giving me a chance to clear that up.
