    I see similar plates like that sometimes too.  Why captain obvious needs to reveal himself via vanity plates is a mystery.

    Not an exotic per se but the vanity plate is curious given the same info is elsewhere on the back of the vehicle.


    Keeps people from stealing their plate to use on another car.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    Some Eggs, some Weber stuff, the occasional Traeger, and various other things that make flames and hold coals.

    The absolute best one I’ve ever seen was on a Rolls-Royce:  “RCH PHKR”.  It got by the censors!  :triumph:

    Thanks for that.  Great sense of humor and talent right there.  Extremely well played.

  • For a while NH's motto of "Live Free Or Die" was closer to "Live Free And Die" as the state was one of the last to require people to wear seatbelts while driving.

    Because?

    One of our governors was a motorcycle aficionado and he lifted the helmet requirements....but only if you had proof of health insurance.  DURP.  That lasted until the next governor.

    NASCAR has turned into the WWE of car racing.  Run by a dynasty like WWE.  What ever happened to actual "stock" car racing?  Formula 1, Indy and Rally car is more fun to watch as well as amateur racing like Lemons and Chump Car.

    In my opinion.  Others will differ.

    Rally is my absolute favorite.  Followed by Swamp Buggy Racing, and Australian Formula Jet Sprint Boat.  Honorable mention to Red Bull Air Racing and Red Bull Soap Box Derby.

    The rear window rain deflector looks an inch or two short to me.  Perhaps it's for aerodynamics and not rain.
