Vanity Plates have always seemed a little gauche. The rationale behind them has always been a mystery to me, sort of like as tattoo, but less permanent. What message would I like to send to my fellow drivers sitting behind me at the stoplight, so bored with whatever is going on inside the car that they are reading the back of mine? I could never think of one. A friend of mine and I tried to come up with some way-homers to our great amusement – QQQQ, Ki55-A55 – that we could try to slip past the censors in the County Clerk’s office, but none that I actually wanted to pay the extra scratch for. I figure you have to really have something to say to the general public to go to that trouble. Although I was always partial to Kramer’s vanity plate, ASS MAN…
