Bought a new car today. Honda Crosstour so I can lug my kids and my euipment around.

When I leased my last car I was going to get a custom plate. I played a lot of poker at the time (still play some) and I have 2 year old twins. My plate was going to be ....

TOP PAIR

I thoiught it was appropriate for poker and my kids. When you lease a car, you dont own the plates and I would have lost the rights to that plate when my Infiniti was returned.

Now I won't.

So I am looking for ideas for photography-based plates that also relates to my twins.

My first thought was something to do with a double exposure, but I can't figure out how to fi it into 8 charachters.

DBLXPSUR is hard to figure out

2X XPSUR is also tough and wont fit right.

And ideas?

Come to our house for a bit and you'll see that we live in a zoo. Five kids will cause this, btw. The chimp would apply there, too. ;)

Hm. I like the idea of a custom license plate, but not when its jumbled up shortened versions of words, that leave a lot of people confused

Have you thought about something based around your favorite lens, or focal length? I think that might translate easily into a license plate, something like:

200mm f4(I know you can put spaces between words, and in CA you can put dashes I think, not sure about periods for a 2.8 or something, but still a good thought.

I've thought about it, but made the intentional decision not to put anything suggesting photography on my car. I'd rather not leave hints that their may be expensive photo equipment locked in the car.

But if you do go with a personalized one, run it by a couple of friends first. Sometimes people coming up with the abbreviation are so blinded to what they're coming up with that they fail to see other ways to read that same abbreviation. Sometimes the results are confusing, sometimes humorous, and sometimes quite embarrassing.

My wife and I call it "the firehouse mind." We've both been in fire/ems for about 20 years.

I had to go the BMV yesterday. I was there getting my stuff taken care of when this lady got all bent out of shape because they wouldn't fill her request for a custom plate. She said she tried it online, but it kicked it back as "profane." She got really pissed at the registrar because she wouldn't have the plate ordered. She said that it was her "right" to have whatever plate she wanted. The registrar leaned over the counter, looked her square in the eye and said, "And it's my right to deny any request." The lady called her a few profane words and walked out. She got into a brand, spanking new Porsche convertible with all kinds of "Equality," "Peace" and "mother earth" bullcrap on her car. Why in the hell would anyone put that kind of crap on a $95,000 car?

C'mon Kevin, you can't tell us that story without telling us what she wanted on the plate.

I only wish I knew. My wife wanted to know, too. She had it on the application, but neither of the 2 actually said it. I felt like asking, but the BMV was a zoo. Sorry.
