They were having a party @ my local Lexus dealer, one of the largest in NorCal I think, and they brought over one of their three demo cars! This one is famous for being all over the world, with each showcasing a different paint scheme/color. This time around, it was unfortunately not white, but still a pretty nice dark gray! Enjoy!
Lucky!!!!

haha I'm starting to think that they might've, considering I did just about everything else I could in the car (sans making love to a hooker in the non-existent backseat)

^jealous! personally, i think the lexus lfa is a masterpiece of refinement, engineering and innovation. certainly outdid themselves, so much so they aren't making any profit at all per painfully-expensive-sticker-price they're selling one for!

looks a lot more menacing in dark gray....

Some of the funniest one's I've seen were: FEO2, and HIO AG.
For you non chemists, the first one either describes the car, or is the name of the guy inside it: Rust or Rusty. The second one is a combo: High-O Silver!

I don't know if this was mentioned, but some vegetarian was upset when they had their vanity plate taken away: ILUVTOFU. They thought it described their love of bean curd, but apparenty the drivers behind them thought something else!

You look a lot smaller than 6'2" 260lbs!

Nice plate though, I like the ones that mean something to the person, even if they don't mean anything to anyone else.

I get the most comments on my Truck's plate though, lot of people think it is comical, although my $100+ fill up yesterday made me think otherwise

In my part of Canada, they don't issue personalized plates, which is a drag. So, you have to try and fluke into something neat for your car, as they are issued sequentially. I was able to get

HTZ-004

to put on my car this spring. That one is okay by me!

So Hawkeye - what is the plate on your truck?

That's pretty unique considering you can't get a custom one.

NS does and I know NB does, so NFLD should be on the bus soon. I was lucky to get RATED M, although no one seems to get it other than real car enthusiasts.

Thanks, RBull!

I am perplexed about why a guy can't get a personalized plate over here. The local DMV gets to charge additional money for them, and governments love to get extra revenues, as we all know. Doesn't seem to make much sense!

Not a personalized one but my tags say ZSK69K. I had somebody ask me if I paid 69K for my Z? I guess it looks like a customized one
