Bumper gawking

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.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.

... As a resident of Hudson-Park, I can attest that Albany is in need of a multi-function event space that can host galas, weddings and chill live music performances in the vein of Saratoga's Cafe Lena (@Carolee), Revolution Hall at Brown's Brewing in Troy, or The Colony in Woodstock. ...and if another person complains about the lack of free parking in a neighborhood built for walking, I'm going to need to take a Xanax.
