On What do you think about vanity plates?

I had one for a while. But it made me easier to spot for the crazy peeps and wannabe stalkers. It ended up not being worth the extra money in my opinion.

I will just stick with Fiesta® for everyday use or china for those special occasions, because I am the antithesis of vain.

If I could get a veteran's personalized plate, I'd get "8MPG" for the corvette.

Sometimes, a vanity tag can be a mistake. The only car I ever bought brand new was a 1974 Subaru, for $2,800. I got quite a discount because it was so late in the model year that the 1975s were already available. They looked just the same to me, though. The sticker price was $3,177. I still have its price sticker for a souvenir. I loved my Subaru so much that I got Douglas county tag # SUBARU for it.

But, I let a friend drive my Subaru and he totaled it a couple weeks before the tag arrived. I couldn't afford another Subaru, so for about a month I drive a Chevy Vega with license tag # SUBARU, and then for a few years after that, I drove a Chevrolet Caprice with license tag # SUBARU.

That tag was never on a Subaru, but I keep it as a fine souvenir of the only brand new car I ever owned. And, from the looks of things, it will be the last one also.

If you want to pay extra money to be more identifiable, more power to you.

KS vanity plates are less than attractive with the red & orangish candy corn coloring.

Total waste of money. Conspicuous consumption. Besides, I prefer to travel incognito.

The following is also the description of the perfect OTS post: “ I think if they are clever and well done, I like them. If they are cheesy, I don’t like them or if they are hard to decipher.”

Not a fan of them for myself, but not against anyone getting them. I do have a problem with Kansas' vanity plates though. When making a PowerPoint presentation, you are taught to create contrast between the background and letters. Our vanity plates have dark letters on dark plates and are harder than hell to see.
