It's such a cute beast, though.

Yep, we admit it -- we like to gawk at custom license plates. And we know you do, too.

Here's a new bunch from around town...

Earlier on AOA:
+ Bumper gawking from this past summer
+ What else are you going to look at while at a stoplight?


My favorite is BIGB1LL. I see him all the time on the I-90 on-ramp.

Here is one I caught earlier this year near SUNY Albany.


Not sure how long ago I saw this, 6 months, year.... but I've seen it multiple times so they're local. Geeky but I love it.

121gwts (or something close to that)

...and no it wasn't on a DeLorean.

Love the liLbeast! I see it all the time in Center Square and I'm always jealous of its ability to park in small spaces!

I've seen MSPAINT a few times. I'm really hoping it's a reference to the venerable Microsoft Paint and not a woman who paints a lot ("Ms. Paint").

Years ago when I was working in Newburgh I saw a car with a license plate that said, "Animagus." I used to have a photo of it, but I can't seem to find it.

I ride every day to work, and also after work for exercise. I love the concept of being a person who happens to ride a bike. There's a level of bike riding, with the high performance gear and sleek clothing, that makes riding seem like its not for everyone. I try to avoid markers like that, and always wear regular clothing/shoes/backpack with dumpy-looking bike. One concession is bike gloves.
