It's very much the way I see the world. Many people spend so much time and resources trying to figure out the why's of life, much of which will never be answered, that they miss the actual life.

My first personalized plate was "THE NORM", which was really a double entendre, since my name is Norm, and back then I was part of "everybody got to deviate from the norm".

Not sure how appropriate it was but I remember seeing a Lincoln with super dark tint and California tags flying down I-65 many years ago. The plate was FKFLMS. We figured it to be an adult movie actor or producer.

They're good enough in the county that I get my tags in that I ask them for a plate with an easy to remember number. They'll dig through what they have available and ask "Will this one work?"
Not personalized, but easy for me to remember.

I saw a tag years ago that said "SCUMBAG". Now, I know that you can't judge a book by it's cover, but based on what I saw, I thought it was fair warning...

That's the only personalized plate that I've seen that I can remember what it said...that's how memorable most are.

Vanity plates are fairly inexpensive in NH and you see them everywhere. We have them on two cars. MA charges a lot more and they are rare. I guess that NH is getting more money than MA from vanity plates. If they were prices at $1000 per year, there would not be many takers...

Too many of them are reflective, usually in the most simple terms, of the vehicle they're on. A "5.0 Stang" plate on a 5.0 Mustang seems like wasted money to me. If the car is very noteworthy, and/or so rare that no one knows what it is then a plate like "32 DBERG" is more appropriate. Other than that, I think the plate should reflect the owner's lifestyle, interests, name, etc.

All IMHO, of course.
