...you pass a car in the traffic with this personalised registration number:

GDAY M8

That must surely be the coolest number plate in the country. I want it

I saw a J4MES the other day. My guess is that it's a Brit that wanted the same plate as they had in the UK.

The best ones I saw in the UK (where they have to work within the format) was H20 SKI and KAY5 50N. Both of which are obviously trying to say wanker

Generally I couldn't be bothered with personalised plates but I've spotted some real eye catching ones here. QLD seems to have plenty registered there (if ebay is anything to go by).

As they are a lot easier on the format here it is easier to come up plates that work better.
