That would be the Jolly Roger. The Union Jack is British.
You are correct, sir. We can chalk that one up to a brain fart. It has been a long week. I like the Jolly Roger, none the less. :wink:

I'm not big on personalized plates, in part because they cost so much. It's one thing to pay double to buy the plates; I get that. At least in Ohio, each year's renewal is also doubled. That's just sticking it to you, and I won't do it.

If you do decide on a personalized plate, please choose not to abuse the poor innocent umlaut. And if you do, at least be clever about it and place the umlauts over a consonant.

my old plate was "Turbo4d" It's up for grabs now Brian if you're still wanting that one!

I like the "EUROSTNG" and it would fit for the 302 Xr........I may very well go that route :D

I really can only afford to splurge on the yearly fees for one personalized plate, and that 's on the Taxi.

"No umlauts were harmed in the making of this thread."

I dunno... "Uro" is like the root word for urology. urologist, urine, urea... na' mean? People might get the wrong idea. "Justa4" OTOH, is a great way to piss off the competition!

I agree that they are too expensive. I'll stick with the ugly NJ letters and numbers format.
