This, I've thought about vanity plates, but the cops, haters, and keyers all come out of the woodwork for any car/driving related vanity plates. Also the limited run 7-character vanity plates are available in TX right now for a limited time in case you didn't know.

I'm still hugely on the fence for vanity plates, I really want a set, but I'm scared. I already get pulled over enough as it is.

I once had Vanity plates on my 1970 Plymouth Barracuda. I am also a pilot, so the plates read "FLYGFSH", for flying fish. Most people are idiots, they thought I was a fly fisherman. LOL

TRBOSC takes my vote. i was actually going to get that for my car too.

i dont like scupra bc the car is not a supra, but if anything a Soarer.

I ended up going with T Soarer, and put a Toyota badge on back of my 97 NA-T lol
My SC400 has Luty 88, which means February 88 in Polish

I want a vanity plate on my car. Still not down for the unwanted attention though haha. I'll eventually get around to it.

Im in the process of registering my car as a "Classic Car" which in Pennsylvania is anything over 15 years old......antique car is at 25 yrs old...

It becomes emissions exempt and only requires a physical inspection....ie dont need to take wheels off etc...

Here is a sample of classic plate....it will be exactly the same color combo....

I will just be satisfied with what they give me because with this classic plate it costs $125 one time fee for registration (lifetime) and it costs an additional $100 for a personal plate.....

15 years?
I thought it was 25 ...
I live in PA also; I think I might follow your lead actually.
I've been wanting to delete my cats (both) in order to establish a nicer sounding exhaust.
The Fujitsubo: Legalis-R is a nice cat-back exhaust, with two resonators; but it's really quiet in comparison to other aftermarket high-performance systems. That, and I just don't like having cats choking-up my flow. There is the concern of losing back-pressure, but given the bends in the pipe, and two resonators, I don't think it's gonna be that bad. After all, from the header and pre-cat, back to the secondary cat, is all stock diameter. When I go turbo, I'm gonna up it anyway; so "meh", it's whatever at this point. I should know the answer to this, but I don't feel like looking it up; are there any restrictions to how often you can drive the car, etc. with an antique tag?
