    And THAT's the main reason I took care to NOT risk "upsetting" others with some ueber "Pro-Prii" personalized plate. I really DO think of them as "personalized" plates, by the way. I've had one on our '08 / 2nd Gen Prius since about '10 (see image), and I have *every* intention of staying true to the "Lord of the Rings" theme when I get a personalized plate for our Prime, too. (I already know what that plate will be, but I don't want to say anything for fear that what the plate will say might get "stolen" from me....)

    I've now been denied twice...

    Try #1 VLTEATR
    Try #2 VOLTKLR

    Both denied after 3 months or waiting each... I think I'm just gonna stick with regular plates…

    I don't know the reason it was denied - but thought I'd mention that there is a website where you can look up if a particular plate as already been taken. In case somebody doesn't know -

    License Plate Lookup

    That's how know GASMIZR was taken by a 94 Cadillac in MN.

    I paid the $3 curiosity fee at that site and it found no information about my 24yr old license plate. With my prime it spit out the make/model/vin.
    It wasn't obvious that the older plate was in use.
    If you choose to be curious, please read the fine print: you are agreeing to a $25 monthly fee until you cancel your account.

    They were denied for political correctness...

    #2 cause it has KLR in it...

    I've been looking up plates without paying anything. It will tell you if it's been assigned for free.

    Damn, I am nervous about putting an FSM badge on my car, where I live. I wouldn't trust someone not to key my car with a plate like that. Good on you though.

    I'm getting fire fighter memorial plates from Illinois (will match the red really nice).

    I wanted to put 10-92 (stands for malicious false alarm - since it looks fast, but its just a prius) but they only allow 3 numbers or 5 letters...I may just have it say prius since prime is taken.

    I always find ways to personalize my vehicle.
    I name all my vehicles.
    Although, strangely The Prius....was always just The Prius. I never did settle on a name. And at most, I might very discretely and in smaller print attach a bumper sticker with the name, if only mostly to make my vehicle easily distinguished in a crowded parking lot. It's more of an inside connection between just myself and the vehicle as opposed to anything I wish to advertise to the world around me.

    I've never liked personalized licence plates. Maybe unfounded and unfair prejudice on my behalf on the projected personality of those that would seek the attention. But IMO there are easier, even better ways to personalize your vehicle. I attach personalized licence plates to the idle whims of the overly bored wealthy.
    Really? "Plugitin" or "HybridCah" isn't THAT clever, and if I pull up behind you I'm not really amused. And I suspect if it amuses you for more than 2 weeks.....you've been binge watching the wrong programs.

    I'll stand with the proud blue collar masses that have a randomly chosen combination of 3 letters and 3 numbers.

    I hope to get one that says KSMYGAS. See if it flys by the DMV.
