Audiophile license plates


In the 1980's California allowed auto owners to purchase personalized license plates. I think I'm about ready for one now.

Do any of you have an audiophile themed plate on your auto?

I was thinking of using HIFIMAN , TURNTBL, TUBEPRE, PREAMP, REEL2RL, MONOBLC or something of the sort.

Please post your suggestions for my new plate. You are allowed only 7 spaces on the plate for your name...including any blank spaces.

thanks.....mitch

Having a bit of a problem abbreviating it, but...

"DEAN DRAPER MALE NURSE" is kind of catchy.
A great friend of mine in Michigan has SPIN LPS! Nice!
I like to keep a low profile, and refuse to get a "vanity plate" for the following reasons:

1) You don't need to advertise to potential thieves
2) I like to "play" with with a modified car, and it's a lot easier for someone to remember & report a personalized plate, rather than a bunch of random numbers and letters.

Fly under the radar, and make ID more difficult in ticket happy [i.e.: revenue enhancement] states, which is now EVERY state in America!

How about "SNDGOOD"
Howzabout:

AWDOFILE
TOONZ
TUNEZ
TRNITUP
I MUSIC - put a heart sticker in the blank spot
TWEAK
TOOBZ

Fatparrot....my place is the last place a theif would like to come to if they know what's good for them.... and my car is too slow and has no modifications, it's so slow that anyone would remember the license plate anyway.

I though of these:

LP NOCD
LPVINYL
SPINWAX
TWEETER
WOOFER
I sugest ONGAKU - this way only true audiophiles will know what it means. AFAIK Ongaku means music in Japanese.

The other option would be LPLOVER.

PS. I got a NO NAME vanity plates :-) LINK TO A PIC
Mitch4t, I'm talking about people breaking into your car!

Relating to your other comment,
"my place is the last place a thief would like to come to if they know what's good for them"
gun owners shouldn't put any NRA, or other pro-gun signs or stickers on your car or house. Guns, electronics, and jewelry are the most desirable items for burglars, the majority of whom are trying to support an expensive drug habit.

If thieves can't see it, or don't know that you have it, they'll look elsewhere.
The only vanity plate I have ever found remotely entertaining was the following:

Volvo wagon
"Baby on Board" plaque on suction cup
local gated community sticker
regional "outdoor" outfitter store for yuppies that "hike" (to the mall) sticker

Plate simply read "CLICHE"

Best vanity plate ever!
Okay, Ladies and gentlemen: Time for a riddle, as long as we are talking about license plates. (And no, it has nothing to do with Audiophile terms, but it is a fun riddle.)

A very popular 1980's VW car has a license plate which reads: "ML8 ML8"

Okay, now here is the rather easy question:

What color is the car?

:-)
It wouldn't be a white VW Rabbit would it?

Thats funny.

For a fundraiser in high school we demolised a VW Rabbit with baseball bats and sledgehammers. What was the coach or anyone else involved thinking?
You mean audiophiles in prison?
NO BOSE
NO MP3

I have a car that has the plates "OTL". People are always asking me what it means and I would tell them "Output transformerless" and they would always sat "Huh?", so I now tell them it means either "Over the Limit", "Out to Lunch", "On the lam" or "On top of Lindsey (my girlfriend)".
MAC-4EVR, CD-333.
I could never remember my plate numbers so I went simply with "Audio" though I needed to settle for "Audio1" since the former was taken. I'd been kicking around "Stereo" but since I drive an Audi, "Audio1" had a bit of a double meaning. Good luck.
AUDIO 1
AUD1O
AUDI0
AUD10
Kurt_tank, it was white...correct?
How about
ANAL0G
VINYL
SPIN DOC
GRUVTRAK

just a few
VANITY

As a total aside, my wife drives a car with the plates '2BA49R'

The car was recently stolen, but we got it back. It turns out that the young policeman spotted the car and, being a fanatic 49er fan, he pulled up along side to check out the "Three chicks driving the car with the great plates..."

The woman in the back seat had seen him approaching and she tried to slide down, assuming a low profile. The cop recognized her as a 'person of interest' in another matter and he then 'ran' the plates...the car was 'hot' and he got the credit for being 'on the ball' when...all he was really doing was checking out the "cute chicks in the red car with the great plates..."
Mitch4t, how about"Tunes4U"
The most memorable personal license plate I ever saw was on a German luxury sedan in the parking lot at a local hospital. I laughed when I figured it out.

ID DOC

Assume the driver was a Psychiatrist.
Could be infectious disease

Here is a ''combo package'' made up of one licence plate and one bumber sticker, placed just below the plate.

License plate: HELPME2
Bumper sticker says: ''...escape from this crazy Audio hobby''

if your srereo cost as much as mine use BROKE...OR FOR A REAL TAG HOW ABOUT....SNDSGD
Yes, the answer is a "White" VW Rabbit.
(BTW, sorry I did not answer quicker!)

I remember reading that riddle about 20 years ago in the now defunct magazine Omni.
off topic, but the best one I've seen was a LE CAR that had a plate that said 'LE TAG'
Kurt_tank,

Is this related to Alice In Wonderland?
Not an audiophile-themed plate, but my wife's Mini Cooper S has the license: RRRRRR

At the height of my mid life crisis I had the following PA plates on my 1996 911 Cab:

"HI-END"

Looking back on it embarrasses me.

I could have sworn there was a newer thread similar to this but I couldn't find it when I was search the archives.

I saw an old article in SonicFlare talking about Kevin Deal and his Tube Funhouse and saw this license plate mentioned in the article.

"MY TBE IS LNGR THN YR TBE"

Good for euro type plates but no can do for US plates.
