      This backfired on me, everyone asks if I have an unhealthy obsession with David Hasselhoff....


      No, Germans love David Hasselhoff.


      Oh, so your German? Why not put a "D" on your car...

      I also saw one on a Z-24 Rice mobile at a crab festival. All the cars were 1970 and older pretty bad ass machines except for the rice a roni mobile. But the seat covers DID match the outside of the car. It was hugger orange which made it worse
      Can someone clue me in on the meaning of this plate above?

      Not the license plate numbers/letters, but the fact that it's a "Historic" vehicle plate on a crappy Ford Escort.

      I don't believe there is a meaning other than the fact that it's an historic plate on a POS.

      Edit: Post timing is everything.

      It's a classic car license plate. At least that's the intent. Lower registration fee and no state inspection requirement.

      In Maryland the cutoff is 20 years, so right now a 1990 model vehicle is eligible. Hence the "Historic" Escort and Cavalier Z24.

      You're not supposed to use cars plated like this for general transportation.

      [QUOTE=PsychoVolvo;66555623]Some day I want a custom plate that makes no sense. Just so I can watch people in the cars behind me trying to squint and sound it out.

      Let's argue this the American way; volume, proximity, and repetition.

      Have you thought about putting a dot in between WTH and NVY? I know in some places it's illegal but I doubt they'd bother you. Kinda like the I FIX VW plate earlier on in this thread.

      And I love CPTN SLO! Why didn't I think of that!
