I need to renew my plates this month and I'm thinking about getting personalized ones. There're some cool plates I found available, but I'm still not sure which one to choose. I don't like the sanctimonious plates (IE: LOL OIL/NO GAS, etc.), I'd like to keep it humble.

Plates that aren't available: HIVOLTG, VOLTRON, VOLTAIRE, VOLTAIR, VOLT, REVOLT,

Which one do you think I should get?

Also, what are your custom plates?

Get the one you want.
Just take the random one that the DMV gives you. Why bother paying extra for personalized. Nobody really cares. If you make it too memorable, then you'd make a horrible getaway car as onlookers can rattle off the plates when questioned. Reminds my of a college roommate who got BOINK 5.

I appreciate a creative plate when I see one. Assuming you're in CA, I'd get... 250+MPG (kids plate)

When I got my second Volt, I got REVOLTD as my plate, so I only think that one is a good idea if you are on your second one. :)

Given the fact that I drive the only Volt, let alone the only EV, in this city... I don't think personalized plates would be the thing that people remember.

What I do want people to notice is that it is an EV. I want people to know that they're practical and more affordable than they may think. The only way to do that is to get them talking. I've already slapped an "Electric" badge onto my car (As seen in my avatar). I work next to a Domino's and that got one of their drivers asking me about my Volt. He never commented on it until I put the Electric badge on.

If there are any Trekkers on this forum, the first hybrid vehicle I can remember seeing was a 1999 Honda Insight (the original model Insight) that was about the size of a roller skate. The license plate was NCC1701.

Where did you get that? Good idea -- I like it.

I wanted to get that one a long time ago, it was already taken though.

Why would anyone waste money on personalized plates? :p
I agree. I have also never understood why people want to waste their money going to concerts and sporting events and don't get me started about fishing or golf. <LOL>

Since the OP isn't in Virginia, I'll throw OHM-RIDE out there.
I'm always surprised at how many people tell me they get a chuckle out of my plates.

In the future when I buy a home, I don't intend on painting it because cement grey is as much of a color as baby blue.

Why spend money now when I can invest it, let it grow, and bring it with me to the grave!!

I think they can be fun. I have a box truck GMC 5500, I painted it the correct blue with a window painted in the side door among other subtle clues, including the "TYPE 40" plates.

That one was likely taken here sometime in the 90s - they actually had a plate series with the starfleet logo. :)
