I had a friend at university who had MACMAN2 as his license plate. Being that he was a Macintosh nerd and all...

L337 HPB (Elite High Ping Bastard) is my future numberplate.

On I-95 the other day, I spotted a plate that said STFUNUB. I had to catch up to that car. Too bad the windows were tinted.

My plates read PROGRAM.

I wanted "I PROGRM", so that it wouldn't look like I was taking part in a dealer special of some sort ("Hey man, you have a program vehicle?"), but my wife misunderstood.

Yes, I am a geek.

I need to get a new plate in less than 2 weeks (new car) and I want to get another moose plate. What should I get written on it? I think I have up to 6 letters.

Up here in "hunting country", the best license plate that I've seen is "ELKH8ME"

Not quite geeky, but cute.

I have MP3CAR - not original, but fitting (until my head unit was stolen and my jukebox power connector went bad...)

It's not geeky, per se, but yesterday I was on the highway and saw what I thought was a clever plate on a blue corvette...


I was thinking to myself...hmmm. Rap CD In. ok maybe it's some rapper record magnate or something. Then I saw the old dude driving the card with his little driving gloves and thought no way. Hmm. It's a blue car.

Say it aloud....

Not really computer geeky, but one of my motorcycles has HASTUR. Near Seattle I saw a green Ford Explorer with the plate CTHULHU.

My wife's car's tag reads XMLGURU. My Ford Explorer is adorned with a tag reading FNORD.

Worked with a gal who had GREP on her wagon. Easy to find; ran on regular.
