    • Rejected California DMV Vanity Plates

      Let's interject some automotive humor in between the usual serious horsepower posts. The California DMV is, well, what one could imagine hell to be. Endless rules, lines, red tape, fines, regulations, bureaucracy, and little to no fun.


      Seriously guys, chill out. It's Cali.

      Notice one of the only plates they actually accepted evokes satan. Not even joking...

        Those cock suckers rejected F16HTON because they said you cannot substitute numbers for letters.

        Meaning is: mash up of USC slogan "Fight On" and 2016 (year of commencement)

        The letter to appeal it cam after the date to appeal had expired.

        They are reasonably strict in my state of QLD here in Aus, but the majority of those would be absolutely fine. Except maybe the dickout and satan ones

        I'd like to take a ride in the titty wagon.

        Don't you have more than one wagon now?

        I love sharing it with people, you are in South Orange County, is that correct? I am in SD.

        Yes, I have a few wagons currently. When I got into the fender bender with the white one a while ago I bought a "beater" E39 540i Touring which has since undergone a pretty drastic transformation and 2 months ago I fell into an excellent deal on the Grigio Telesto E61. Both the grey E61 and E39 will be up for sale soon, there are a few remaining repairs to do on the grey E61 but it should be listed in a month or less. Once the grey wagon sells the E39 will get a manual swap and vanos + timing chain guide refresh on the M62 and then get listed as well. I have all the parts in the garage waiting to go.

        Keeping the white E61 obviously and now that it's 100% mechanically I will finish the aesthetics and make it pretty once again. A diesel E70 LCI will be the new acquisition and be the daily to keep miles off the E61. If you are unfamiliar the M57 is a real peach and I am excited to experience the power/efficiency/reliability it offers. Going to delete the emissions stuff, intercooler, exhaust, DME/trans tune. Should be good for 300awhp 550awtq and just under 30mpg combined. Click here to enlarge

        Similar topic but not regarding license plates....I recently applied for a Trademark for an acronym for one of my new designs at work. The acronym sounds like a particular species of fish. Didn't purposely do that but sounded cool nonetheless. Got a response from the corporate lawyers a few weeks later and it said, and I $#@! you not, "You're application for Trademark (insert said acronym here) was denied due to sounding too similar to (said species of fish) and (said species of fish) are dangerous. Try changing the name." I work for a construction equipment OEM..... I wish I could tell you what the acronym was but I'm still pursuing the Trademark so can't for legal reasons. But it was quite hilarious.
