I saw "KATCHOO" today and it was a temp tag. I suspect the plate was stolen.

I Like NVMYMPG and of course my favorite BONK 1

Dave said...

NVMYMPG is at my daughter's daycare. I probably know you. I've never seen BONK 1 though. Very cool. Real?

For pictures of AMBIGRM, as well as THATCAR, check out .

Today, the Miata will be retired and the Chevy will become THAT CAR, which is easier to understand than AMBIGRM.

Other artcar plates in Columbus include Maliglu, ToyArt, Plaid, ArtCart, ArtGeko and OHCorn.

Cool, thanks for the new plates.

The best one I've seen is:
I think it was on a minivan.

I worked at the BMV for a while, and you wouldn't believe some of the plates people try to get through. This woman totally ripped me a new one because I wouldn't allow S AND M.(She insisted it was her and hubby's initials). But if a clerk lets it through and the state catches it, the agency gets charged for it.
