I've always thought those custom plates are yuppie sh*t.

However, I've toyed around with the idea of getting a set for Alleywagon '04. Something like:

"ALLEY 04"

Nawww...that's yuppie sh*t!! Not appropriate for a Sube!!

I think I'll put my signature on the car instead. Winshield, door, tailgate, mirrors - someplace cool...

Abso-frickin'-lutely! Vanity plates rock, so long as they aren't just confusing! As an example, a friend of mine calls his car the "SubaRocket". He wanted to get vanity plates for his car, but unfortunately, "SUBARKT" just doesn't look like anything that the average person would get "SubaRocket" out of. OTOH, my father has a set "MFS10SE"...Memphis, Tennessee....

Get one only if it makes sense and doesn't look like a regular plate.

Lexus RX's, Mercedes C class & any BMW are for yuppies. Vanity plates are for people who show pride in their vehicle, or something they believe strongly in. I also think it should be something simple and easy to read. RX WAGN would work nice, and get the point across.

TheAlleyBoy, did you hear the one about the guy who couldnt afford personal plates... so he changed his name to AMR649 :lol:
