Spotted on a Mini Cooper on the West Roxbury Parkway in West Roxbury: Mass. plates reading:
Mini Owners rule!
I can't figure out what that might mean, and Google isn't helping clarify things.
A couple of years ago, I saw a BMW in Cambridge with "OMG WTF" as the (MA) license plate. Is this supposed to be something along the same lines?
Context is everything: On a Mini, WKDSML = WICKED SMALL.
A long time ago, I once saw a Rabbit with HPT HOP.
My all-time favorite was a Porsche I used to cycle past in Silicon Valley, at the height of the tech bubble. The plate read: GOPBLQ.
I always wondered how much he was able to sell it for when the bubble burst.
Why would Michael Steele sell his Porsche?
Seen on a classic "Amphicar" parked on Newbury St. in the late 1980s:
We were right in the middle of a "can that really be an amphicar"? conversation when that plate removed all doubt.
A family friend got away with MERDE for her VW Bug convertable for several years until somebody figured it out.
because a VW bug with the top down looks like a pile of MERDE?
I once saw a mini with the license plate reading: Scusi driven by an old Italian couple... made me giggle.
Nothing will top the Michigan plate reading SLAMPIG that I saw once driving around Vermont.
...a VW Beetle, with the license plate (from California, where they can be that long): FEATURE. (My husband's fave.)
Haha. That is funny. If you get a pic of any of those plates please submit it to my site http://horriblelicenseplates.blogspot.com
Once while driving on the NY State Thruway, a Corvette passed me with the NY plate reading:
i saw the same mini on southeast expressway yesterday. there was also a NPR sticker on the car - so i was curious. maybe it was a station -WKDS? so i googled it - but i googled WKDSML and found the very car - and expplanation of the plate. who doesnt love gooogle - and the internet! how did we get thru life in the 50s and 60s?
Saw a VW Beetle Bug the other day with a license plate EEKABUG
Just saw The mini in Cambridge, mass, googled it and found this blog! Cool
