Michigan has a 7 character plate, allowing only numbers, letters, and spaces. I was thinking something like this:

NO COKE

So, let's hear your suggestions for #1798!

FWIW, I gave up 'T304 SS' for a Michigan historical plate. $30 for a 10 year registration and you save over $100/yr on MCCA insurance fees.

Thanks for the info :)

While I was always considering going this route, I didn't realize that the insurance savings were so significant!

Yeah, I hated to lose it. When I flipped the equation around, keeping a standard reg over the historic plate was going to cost me about $150 a year. Thrifty prevailed.

If you choose to have a custom, don't forget to see how it looks first (http://services.sos.state.mi.us/plates/)!

aw, do they not have the standard blue plate/white stamped letters that theyve had for ages? i liked those.

I've said it before, but it warrants repeating: A BTTF-themed plate will cause you to receive significantly more comments and jokes about the movie. I'd advise against it, unless that's what you want.

I just got the "vintage vehicle" plates from my state and decided it would be fun to get a vanity plate at the same time. Since it is a specialized plate, I was limited to only 5 characters. I was baffled that my first two choices were taken already: DMC12 and 81DMC. Oh well. I went with DMC81. In my state, I still have to pay regular registration fees until it is 40 years old, at which time registration will only be $10 a year. The benefit of the vintage plate in my state is that I no longer have to do safety and emissions inspections. That was enough to convince me to wait in line for 45 minutes at the DMV for the new plate.

Nope, those went away a few years ago. I liked the plain look too.

I do have a black background / white text plate from 1982 that I've been meaning to register: XYP 304

I wanted to do "GIGAWHAT?" And put a question mark sticker after the T. But trying to steer away from BTTF related plates I have "SUMMROFF" because I'm a schoolteacher and most work my D happens over the summer. I LOVE SUMMER !

I had NOPICKUP on my daily driver (ford hybrid escape 2008) many day that would also fit the D but I'm happy with the pickup. It's no v8 but Boo hauls ass pretty well IMHO. I surely enjoy driving her And enjoying the pickup. And the shifting and the handling. Not so much the hot cabin without ac.

Boo
10-22-2013, 02:32 PM
I want to get either a late 90's Mazda rx7 or a 1985 fiero gt and put WORMDRIV on the plate just to have people say it runs on a worm drive?

But for the D I thought of "HANDTITE" and "HALF-S" or "LUCEPATS" in NY you get 8 characters. My dodge 2003 hdmi pickup 4 door was " BIG OL' ".
I always save a plate when I return them so I could post pics of the ford and dodge plates and my SUMMROFF from Boo. We should have people post their personalized plates in picture form.

"BAK N TYM" and "TIMETRVL" are some BTTF ones

I was originally gonna put "DUMBFLUX" on Boo but "SUMMROFF" was chosen because i didnt want to do a BTTF plate.

Yeah me too. I gave it a lot of thought also. The BTTF angle (which the car will always be ID'd with) is played out. Cool as it is or was. But the right BTTF themed plate can get the point accross. I was really considering "FLUXOFF" for a time. I think "FLUX IT" was up there too. "FLUX U" "NO TIME"... The best BTTF related plate I've ever seen was "CUERLYR". I finaly settled on "IT IS" which has turned out to be a great choice ;) I look forward to see what you come up with.

Have you tried "DOCHEAD"? :D

NY is an 8 character state. I was going to transfer SUMMROFF to the fiero and put GIGAWHAT? On the DMC . I'd just have to add a question mark sticker in navy blue. But with the rear OEM frame around the plate I don't think the question mark would fit. I only have one BTTF reference on my car and most people don't even notice it.

Boo
07-14-2014, 07:38 PM
Mine would be a pain to swap because my SUMMROFF plate is a historical plate and the fiero's registration isn't historic so I would have to pay for a new non historical SUMMROFF plate to be made and the also pay for a historical GIGAWHAT plate to be made. Not like it can't happen though. Something to think about. :confused:
