    Maybe they were born in 1972 and like the Dance Dance Revolution video game a lot?

    I've always wondered how it works in the US, can you guys just have any reg number you fancy, as long as it's unique? And I'd heard that you can transfer your number from car to car?

    In Florida , you can transfer a plate from car to car. I have vanity plates on all my vehicles.

    It varies state by state. You are usually issued whatever you get, but you can pay more and have a custom plate. Another way to take money out of our pockets and give it to the government. (Says the guy with three vanity plates)

    It's only an extra $10 here in Virginia. Tons of people have vanity plates. But they crunch up the spelling to make them fit or to make them unique until half the time I see one it doesn't make any sense! Also there are different background patterns if you want yours to have a ship on it or a bird, and then you can personalize that! And then there are the group plates that have the emblem of where you went to college or your favorite hobby you can have the state print up if you get enough pre-orders on a petition. Here in Virginia they have allowed the Sons of Confederate Soldiers to have a group plate so there are plates with the confederate flag on them! Don't know if they're planning to change that now.

    It seems like everyone from SW Virginia has a personalized license plate. But in Tennessee last time I checked a personalized plate was about twice as much as a standard plate. Believe it or not they do have a panel of people who review plates to figure out if they are offensive before issuing them. Such as "PIMPCAR".

    Then of course we have those special plates like Wartburg353 mentions.

    Yeah don't know what's going to happen with the Sons of the Confederacy plates in TN. To me hanging the Confederate flag up in my garage is no different than someone in Scotland (Ron perhaps?) flying the Scottish flag instead of the Union Jack. Doesn't mean I'm a racist, doesn't mean I'm anti-American. To me it just means I'm from the south and I am a redneck. Actually the term "Redneck" is some reference to the Ulsters from Northern Ireland that settled the southeastern US. Something about wearing red bandanas or something.
