The time has come to settle on the numbers/letters I want displayed on the '63 R2. Sure could use some help. It is the turquoise car in my sig. I'd like it to reflect what the car is, the Rabid Snail Racing team, or the like. Suggestions?

Be more specific...
How many letters, numbers, spaces, and dashes do you get in your state?

That makes no sense at all! If you are paying the BIG bucks for a personalized plate it should be like in Calif. where you get what you paid for...your choice! You could get Avanti in 6 letters, why do you need NUMBERS? Dumb! :( Some of these politicians need to get some common sense!
You can't make a word out of 4 letters!

Well you could Rich but I don't think Jim's DMV would approve!! I know the law of the land in Illinois certainly doesn't!! [:o)] [:o)]

I believe you can have an Illinois license plate with all letters but it costs a lot more. I know that was the rules when I lived there.

No no, the four letter words that scare little children, I think H*LL 63 comes to mind. Those are the ones I had in mind that the state would say no to.... [}:)]
That said I got, 8K STDE

Thank for the input, guys. I kind of like the 8K STUDE, but antique vehicle plates are for 5 years. For that matter, I like them all. I may have to pony up for regular vanity plates where I can mix numbers and letters. $135 per year vs $90 for 5 years, though.

I have some decals of this little guy that say Rabid Snail Racing. They are printed in reverse to go inside the quarter windows. Most people haven't a clue what "Rabid Snail" refers to - until we lift the hood, lol.

That is TOO FUNNY Jim! Unfortunately, I don't think anyone would "GET IT" though.

Maybe you need a big purple snail decal on the decklid above the plate! [B)]

When I purchased my '63 Avanti it had Iowa Plate AVANT1.
However I am to frugal to pay for vanity plates and turned it in. Things are expensive enough without paying extra just to drive the car.
