    no photoshopping fakery, unless it was an actual fake plate.

    Just a single letter D

    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"

    I had 88N G0N on my first Delorean when I sold the car I kept the plates and hung them on the wall in mom's garage ( for safe Keeping ) 6 years later when I bought my second Delorean I reapplied for the plate. they told that it was taken... I told the DMV that I still had the plate they let me reactivate for 100 bucks so 88N G0N is now on 10020

    Applying for a new plate to be made versus assigning an existing one are completely different. For really popular plates, once you let yours expire, someone else may have already taken it. Or in some cases like this, it may be forbidden. If you have the plate where they clerk can identify it, the system may just blindly accept the number if the filters have not been applied by whomever coded the software. Most likely for legacy plates (which is why they let you use the old plate). But if you're applying for a new plate to be manufactured, the profanity filters are definitely in place. And unfortunately for BTTF fans, "88" is now on the banned list as offensive in many, if not most states. So if you've got those plates, don't let them expire lest you loose them permanently.

    I had to urban dictionary 88. I won't let them go this time I was just glad to get them back "it was like I never left"

    Ridiculous. They're reaching way too far by banning that one. If you have to look up what it means, then who the hell is going to be offended...

    Vanity Plate

    Here's my car with my plate and a very good friend standing next to my car. (I've know him for years)

    The plate ILI-ILI in the Hawaiian language (where I purchased my car) name was given to me by a Hawaiian Priestess, who blessed my car before I moved to the 'mainland'.

    In the English language this translates to "smooth pebble", the Hawaiians loved my car. ( pronounced like ELEE-ELEE )

    Funny thing there were two on the Big Island, the other was a Black interior 5-speed.
