There are three Enclaves in my town and I noticed today we all have personalized plates. This is my first car that is personalized. I read an article that said the majority of residents in Virgina and Illinois have personalized plates over the standard issue. I'm in Ohio and it's becoming more popular.

I got 'em! my friend in VA has them too, but said he pays only $10 a year! In NY, where I live, it's about $26 a year!! But we like them ;D. No, they have nothing to do with the Enclave. Had them for 15 years now. They're just initials with a number.

We have personalized tags on all 3 of our vehicles, but they have nothing to do with the Enclave. We have had these for about 8 years or so.

Re: Do you have personalized plates on your Enclave?

I'm getting special plates, I don't know if they're called personalized because we didn't put our initials or anything on them, I just ordered from the "Wildlife" scenery series here in Washington state, of a cute bear standing on his back legs on the left side. The colors go with the cocoa color of my car. I still have the temporary tag on my rear window, hoping to get the plates any day now. 8)

Re: Do you have personalized plates on your Enclave?

I had vanity plates for many years, but gave them up just recently. After turning 50, I just stopped feeling the need to express my individuality on a license plate. It's just part of the generalized apathy that I find creeping over me like a vine up a fence. Isn't that sad? I think it has something to do with the fact that all the idealism our generation had in the late 1960s and early 70s has been proven to be in vain. All that survives is the music, and I try to immerse myself in that as much as I can. All you need is love. And money. Lots and lots of money.

We do have vanity plates. Noticed recently that I am starting to think like "Big Larry" (never thought I would think that let alone put it in writing), even though I am not fifty - yet.

Did check and see weather "Enclave" was available has a plate or not when I bought the car. In VA it was available back in Sept. Decided to stick with my personalized tag that I have had for a year.

BL, You've been hurt and disillusioned by family, friends, or maybe un-patriotic ingrates! I know cause I once felt that way too!! Our generation has produced incredible strides in every area. Some passion may be gone, but wisdom took it's place. We must have done something right, cause every time I see a group of our young men and women, in uniform, selflessly fighting the threats to our country around the world, my chest grows in size, by a few inches, and it overshadows all the morons running around, totally unaware that they live in the best place this world has ever produced!

Keep your great sense of humor, stay on this forum, and keep playing those oldies!!!!! :thumb:

Re: Do you have personalized plates on your Enclave?

Yeah, I too am not much on the vanity plates anymore (guess I'm getting old). I do like the special plates here in WA State though (like National Parks, Fire & Police, etc.). I think I'd get in real trouble and a lot of dents if I got personalized plates since we seem to have some really bad drivers around here. I was thinking of something like "UIDIOT". The real topper would be the light tube around the plate that I'd light up when needed... UIDIOT[/color] ...just kidding. And no, I'm really not an up-tight or aggressive driver. But, man, there sure are some doozies out there!

Re: Do you have personalized plates on your Enclave?

I've had vanity plates for several years now (just my last name), and I will keep them because I like them. I thought about changing to "RICHGRL", but I'm afraid people will think that's the truth...seeing that I am driving an Enclave after all...[/color] 8) :crazy:

Re: Do you have personalized plates on your Enclave?

I have had vanity/personalized plates for several years also and will keep the same one for the Enclave. It's the nickname hubby gave me 35 yrs ago just prior to us getting married. We went out one nite and I put a dime (yes 1/10th of a dollar) in a pinball machine and played for about 2 hrs. The machine was called "HotShot" and hubby has called me that every since. LOL [/size][/color]

For now, only the Angels Baseball license plate holder. That is as personal as I will get for awhile. My van had a My son is a soldier sticker on it, but he has now been honorably discharged with a Bronze Star given to him. Are we proud? You betcha!

We just received our personalized plates - illinois "ENCLAV 1"

on the car. We replace the saab 9-5 wagon with the Enclave.

Vanity license plates

The recent discussion of cleaning license plates made me wonder how many of you have vanity plates, what it says, and what it means.

My plates say TRYALOB. Try a lob... I play a lot of tennis, and am tall - 6'3" - so lobbing over me isn't easy. In addition, in tennis, a passing shot is a shot hit past your opponent when he/she is at the net. My license plate frame says "Can't pass me?". So the whole thing is:

Can't pass me?
TRYALOB

Re: Vanity license plates

That's very very clever rockyp.

I can't swallow the additional annual tax/fee that goes with a vanity plate. But mostly, I don't think I can be clever in the limited space of a license plate.
