We are thinking of this plate for our other car ... goal is to be stealthy ... thoughts?
I think everyone will get it on here, but not sure I'd pick it up if I just saw you driving down the street.
I'm guessing that's kind of the point.
I am having this mental image of the citizens of Ohio working out phonetics.
Hey now....we aren't all idiots, just the tOSU fans are.
That's pretty good too though.
doubtful anyone will figure it out. If someone reads it for them, there will definitely be trouble.
especially one that knows how to read
I think he can get better insurance rates given the probability of this in ohio vs. other states.
The plate doesn't even say what the worst state is. I think it's a good balance between being insulting and not getting your car keyed or your tires slashed.
but i'd prepare for your car to be shat upon.
maybe if you also had a bumper sticker right underneath that spelled it out they would be able to get it.
Imagine what will happen when someone doesn't get the "buck" part. You will get some pretty awkward looks.
Hahaha!! This one's great as well.
But they will kill your car in Ohio
A thing of beauty is a joy forever
they hate all things michigan down there? Speeding seems to be a capital offense IF you have michigan plates! your court cost are going to kill you.
true story: back when i was a young engineer -- read single -- i drove from toledo to cinci every week. i was following a michigan plated car that was going abit over the posted speed limit, about 20+. the state trouper going north on I-75 , crossed the median, ignored me and nail the guy with the michigan plate.
Don't you mean... [Driving?] "seems to be a capital offense..."
I don't go home to my 'rents during late november, then you are corect, driving while michigander is an offense.
When moved down here (Dayton, OH-NO) in 2002, I got "MGINEER"... spent 45 min at the BMV explaining that it wasn't code for being in a cult or something explicit. Would agree with emailers above.. get ready for your car to get shat on. Seriously.
Not to mention that all those OSU grads who now work as meter maids may start writing you parking tickets that never go away...
And I didn't even get a sideways look when I asked for "8008135". Then again there are tons of vanity plates around here and there only appears to be one person on the road who ever got what I was going for. Him giving me the thumbs up was totally worth it.
That is one awesomely outsized cargo carrier on top of that beauty
I had to drive through Ohio for the Connecticut game and my license plate (my avatar) got quite a few, well, interesting reactions from people on the turnpike. Also got a speeding ticket while going 2 miles UNDER the speed limit but it was well worth it! :)
I had to drive through Ohio again when I moved back to Michigan from NY this fall, and let's just say I have a very distinctively colored 15 year old car completely decked out with UM stuff from almost every viewing angle. I think the only thing saving me from getting pulled over was the fact I was towing it behind an RV and couldn't really get it above 60-65 anyway.
What was his reason for giving you a ticket then?
I've been a victim of it many times in Ohio. It's a classic case of DWB*.
(* Which of course means "Driving While screaming go Blue.")
He wrote it up as me going five mph over the speed limit even though I had my cruise control set at two under FOR THIS SPECIFIC REASON, and my GPS confirmed. As I said tho, it was well worth the ticket to see some of the reactions.
I'd go with WRST ST. Don't get greedy and try to cram the whole phrase in there.
I think that is a fantastic license plate. If you've got any Michigan gear on you car, I think you'll get a reasonable number of people that figure it out.
Unlike the OSUSUX plate, that I think would play okay in places away from Columbus (such as Cincy, where I'm at), that plate is asking for some pranks (or worse) to your car anywhere in the state. Make sure you've got good insurance!
I dont have a picture of it, but my cousin has O VRATED on a 1950 chevy pickup on his ohio plates. Its a block O vanity plate...looks pretty good.
Who is WeST and why did he eat EVeR? =P
