CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS and MISCELLANEOUS
PLATE[Possible] EXPLANATION
.30AUT6I love this plate! The .30-06 Springfield is a rifle cartridge, a .30 caliber round. This was the cartridge used for the bolt action Springfield and Enfield rifles in WWI, and for the semi-automatic (en block clip) WWII M1 Garand rifle (a superb weapon). It has been a popular, high powered hunting rifle round ever since. The .30 refers to the caliber, the 06 refers to the year it was adopted (1906). A thirty aught 6 has a hell of a kick! Thanks to Randy W. for spotting this one.
1DEELITESounds promising...
1KING3QNSomeone who clearly likes a good hand of cards -- just needs another King...Thanks to Randy for this one.
1 FAST 1Someone who clearly likes speed...
1 4M LOINo idea what this means. Maybe the 1 is to be read as "I" and the 4 is supposed to be read as an "A" -- I AM LOI?" Doesn't explain the LOI...
1 WRGHT Must have some significance, but whatever that is remains something of a mystery...Thanks to Randy W.
2-DA-MAX!The hyphens count as a half space (NC plates can hold a maximum of 8 characters; this plate would have a space count of 0.5 remaining)...
2SPOILED I love this one!
3 G GRLZSorry, I'm not certain what a "3 G" girl is--or perhaps it's "G GIRLS" X3 (I'm still in the dark)...
3PILATESThis individual must often have to order 3 Pilates, I guess. Man, never in my life have I ever ordered a Pilate...
3X AMMO3x ammunition? A fan of firearms/shooting?...
ABACUS-1A fan of "traditional" calculation methods...or math in general?
A FEAG 2I'm kind of at a loss as to which catgory this should go in; not a clue to the meaning...
AIR JUTSNot sure, what a JUT is...
AJOYHappy about something...
AKRAISHOThis one is also a bit obscure, unless I'm missing something obvious...
APIXIntriguing, but don't have a clue what this one is referring to...("apex," with "E," means the top or tip of something, but APIX?? Don't know
APRILMAYA reference to the old limerick about flowers and showers? Perhaps someone who likes Spring?
ARCANEA great word that gets little usage in this day and age (...you may have to look it up in a dictionary). Ten points goes to this person!
ARTDOGClearly someone who enjoys artistic endeavors...
ASHCAKESOdd! Wonder if another family member has a plate with "PATACAKE" (Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker's man...)? Haha, just joking! For those who do not know, ashcakes are either corn bread wrapped in cabbage leaves and then baked in hot campfire ashes, or a soda-leavened dough hand formed, flattened, and cooked on such hot ashes. In the US, they are more or less a dish of southern origin (Aabama, Georgia, etc.)...
ASTARIRNAnother one that is pretty much Greek to me; A STAR...???...
AUG 6Not sure of the significance of this date (other than its being the anniversary of the US use of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, in WWII)...
AVNAviation? Someone who likes to fly, apparently...unless these are personal initials
BAYBGIRLWonder is driver is talking about a new child, or about her own personality, perhaps? Thanks to Randy W. in NC, who spotted this one...
BAKERGRLA woman who likes to cook (unless she's a female member of the Baker family...ot maybe she works at a bakery -- in which case this it the wrong category...
BANGpossibly a fan of fireworks? A gun afficionado would probably choose weapon nomenclature for a personalized plate (e.g., P-38) or a company/model and caliber (e.g., SIGSAUER, COLT.45, M&P9MM). Maybe someone who likes The Big Bang Theory TV show?
BC GONECould be initials, with GONE...
BGDADIEA neat original spelling of Daddy, I must say
BIGDUDEA rather straightforward observation
BIGGDOGG
BIG-HUDD No clue what a HUDD is...??
BITR BO Bo is bitter about something? Boy "bo'" is bitter?
BIZ BLDR A successful entreneur, perhaps?
BKRDR No doubt about this person's favorite pasttime! Here here, for a good novel! Nothing beats real paper, the scent of the ink, the feel in your hand...screw KINDLE
BLDSUCKR BLOOD SUCKER is the way I choose to interpret this one--perhaps a comment about a very unplesant relationship partner, a fan of the vampire genre -- or, perhaps, something completely different: Bold Sucker? --or else, BALD sucker?...
BLUEIZZ This one's intriguiung, but I haven't figured it out yet...
BOSSDIVAapparently a commanding female, with a very high opinion of herself
BOY DRGN A guy who likes boy dragons as opposed to girl dragons?
BMFCU#1 Not sure what this abbreviation refers to, so for now I'm putting this plate in this category. Submitted by my former bass guitar player, Michael. Thnx man!
BMBASTICGreat word--and to put it on a plate, is pretty cool. Dictionary definition tells us: someone prone to pompous, pretentious speech or writing...Unfortunately, the pronounciation of this particular word (bombastic) sets a replay in my head of that annoying Barbie Girl song "...life in plastic, it's fantastic"...
BLNDIEMost likely a plate belonging to a blonde female--but then again, I once had a Yorkshire Terrier named Blondie...
BRSRKERDBerserkered? This is a cool one! ...
BX-DIVAA woman who considers herself a DIVA and who hangs out (or works) at the Air Force Exchange store (like a civilian department store). Not an Army person, as the facility would then be "PX" (the Army title is "Post Exchange", the Air Force uses "Base Exchange"...
BULLY1 Not sure why anyone would be particularly proud of this description (unless it's a joke)? I was kind of wondering, if Bully2 is in the same family...
BWHDYDURWasn't quite sure in which category to put this, because I have not yet figured out what the meaning is--no matter which vowels I add, haven't yet come up with a reasonable word, or words...
BWITCHD This one is pretty cool! This driver thinks he/she is bewitched by someone? Or, just bewitched in general? This plate could also fit in the Movies, etc. Fan category... .
CAKE=LIENot quite sure how to take this one. A lie about a cake? Let the cake lie? -- as in "let it lie"? ... .
CATNAP 1Someone who likes catching brief Zzzz ?...
CANDYSUG Candy Sugar?
CATWOMAN Whoah, slinky!! I'm taking this as a character description, as opposed to the suggestion that she's a fan of Catwoman (or maybe, it's a male driver who IS a fan of Catwoman?)...
CHICKS 1S Hmmmh, CHICKS IS?? Chicks ONES? Any help here?
CHOSEN7Not sure if this means there are 7 chosen, this is the 7th chosen, or according to plates issued (including the original CHOSEN), this driver is number 8 who considers him/herself chosen (for what??)
CHROME44 Someone who likes shiny metal things?...
CINIMINI This plate was on a little Puegot vehicle, driven by an Asian female--which tells us nothing about the meaning behind CINIMINE --is it one word, or two: CINI / MINI ?
CO 75Possibly COLORADO? No real idea on this one...
CODEWORD Not sure what the actual "CODEWORD" is...Anything you want it to be, I guess... Thanks to Randy W. for this plate!
COOLIN Maybe "CHILLIN" was already taken? I like this one...
COMEDIAN Pretty self-explanatory; I expect to see a plate like this on my niece, Anne-Marie's car someday in the near future--a very funny person is Anne-Marie, who considers herself a born comedienne...(probably politically incorrect, that).
CON GIRLA person in touch with herself, and not bashful about it. The opposite number to a CONMAN, I guess. Thanks to Randy W. in NC.
CONJUREA magician, maybe??
COWGIRLWho is seeking a match with the right cowboy, maybe??
CREOLADY A 'creole' woman -- must be from Louisianna...
CVTATENot quite sure what this means...might be initials and a name--CV TATE? Something Latin??
CYRANOA lady's man with a real predeliction for poetry, perhaps?
DEDA NCDEDA(?) and North Carolina (NC), maybe?? A challenge, this one...
DEBONAIRI like this one; says a lot aboiut this individual's self-image!...
DABOSS1 Clearly, a LOT of folk like to feel that they are in charge...
DAS STIGSounds German ("das" is the definite article "the" for neuter nouns--i.e., das Auto 'the car/automobile--in German; "die" is "the" for feminine nouns--i.e.,, die Frau, the woman; and "der" is "the" for masculine nouns--i.e., der Panzer, the tank). However, STIG is a mystery (no German word that I know, and I'm a fluent speaker). Thanks to Randy W. for this one...
DGNFLY84Going to take a guess that this person thinks of herself/himself as a dragonfly-type of character and was born in 1984... .
DIVA 1Wow, only the original "DIVA" (no number) would beat out this plate. Spotted by Randy W. in North Carolina...
DIVALYFE A woman who wants to live (or lives) the life of a Diva...
DIVA MWL MWL -- possibly this Diva's initials? Thanks to Randy for this one...
DIVA75 This scares the crap out of me -- does it mean there are at least 75 (DIVA 1-74 + the original DIVA) other women out there who think they are (or consider themselves) divas???? Yikes!!
DIVASLDR OMG, now we've got a woman who considers herself a Diva leader... The number of Divas is growing out of control...Thanks to Randy W. in NC for this plate.
DMAX Wonder what this refers to? Cup size? Something else? Any guesses?
DM-BOYZ Not sure what to make of this one--what's your guess?
DOBRNSKA Sounds Russian...Dobrunska (there IS a city in Bosnia Herzegovia, not Russia, named Dobrunska Rijeka. Nataliya Dobrynska (Наталя Добринська) on the other hand, is a Ukrainian Olympic gold medalist. Or, perhaps this is merely some driver's shorthand for a personal phrase of some sort? Don't know...Thanks to Randy W. for this.
DN'T CAREThere's a definitive statement! Another thanks to Randy W.!!
DRUGSMaybe an indicator of what this driver likes doing during down time? Not sure if it's a wise thing to wave this plate in front of a law enforcement!!
DVUS-DEN"Divas' Den" (clever way to spell Diva...!!)...There sure are a lot of them out there!
EVIL MRSome people just wanna be BAAAD!
FAT BOY A fellow who is okay with being übersized
FELON This one my daughter in Tennessee sent me; it was a New York plate; not sure if this person was stating a fact, or suggesting an aspect of his/her character...Whichever, I don't think I'd put THIS on a license plate (unless I were proud of it, if I were one), but that's just me... .
FGHT-GRL A girl who likes to scrap (fight)--(i.e., has a reputation for fighting)? Or, someone who likes fighting with girls?? I saw this plate in early 2010--but I can't remember if the film "Kick-Ass" had already been released yet, with its iconic character of "Hit Girl!" Saw this plate again just the other day; the driver was a guy, with a girl in the passenger seat...
FIBB A liar at heart, perhaps? Come on! Lie to me! Don't chu be tellin no fibs, now, haha!!

Technically, the word "fib," meaning a small or inconsequential "lie," is spelled with only a single "B". [Possibly from the (approx.) 1580's word "fibble fable" meaning "nonsense"]...

FINICKY1 I can sympathize -- sounds like my dog, can never find a food he likes for more than one meal...
FLIPPIN This one's interesting. Perhaps this person is looking for a partner with a plate that reads "OUT," to park beside?
FIT-GRL This girl, on the other side of the spectrum, is proud that she stays in shape
FIXProbably should have put this in the Observations / Recommendations category...I wonder, fix WHAT, exactly?
FLY-GURL A female who flies for a living or a hobby (as a pilot or passenger?)? A female entomologist specializing in "musca domestica" (the house fly)? Or, a girl who likes to drive fast??
FOX Again, an example of postive thinking / self-confidence (or else, a big ego)
FOXCRAZE I am reading this as either FOX CRAZ -- or FOX CRAZ-E...in either case, it seems to imply the driver is someone who really likes good looking women? Or, someone who is a true animal fan?
FREEDAWGas opposed to maybe, "Freebyrd"? (a Lynyrd Skynyrd tune-though it's actually "Freebird"--DAWG / BYRD...you get it, right? I may be scraping the bottom of the barrel with this joke, hehe)!
FREELOVEHey, Go for it! I like the way this person thinks--sort of a throwback to the '60s flower culture! Or, perhaps the person is merely against, er, "paid [for]" love?
FROGWonder what's behind this one? An amphibian fan?
FULCRUM>There are several meanings for this word; it is also the NATO codename for an Soviet interceptor, the Mig-29. old Russian jet fighter...not sure which meaning was intended...
GEARASS What kind of gear?...
GEAREDUP All "geared up"...to do what?? springs to mind...
GEECHIE1 What in heaven's name, is a GEECHIE? And, there are more of them?? Maybe "GEECHIE goomie?"...
GIBO No idea!
GILA 9N Something of an obscure reference unless it's a nickname; the only Gila I've ever heard of is always associated with the word ord "monster"...hmmmmhh???
GLAMROUS Are you surprised at just how many women are NOT AT ALL bashful?!!
GLUS BUS Would love to know the story behind this one...
GMCHOCL@ Hmmh, wonder what this one is? GM as initials, or the car maker(unfortunately, do not have the vehicle make)? Or, General Mills (cereal)--given that the CHOCL might just be "chocolate", could be a chocolate cereal or something?...
GRNLHTGO GREEN LIGHT, GO! How many times have you thought this when the person in front of you seems to be sleeping? This one thanks to Randy W.
GRU-UMPYWe all have such days, at one time or other...My admiration for the folks able to hide the mood...
HAMR26.2This one's interesting, though I haven't a clue unless the HAMR refers to "hammers"--but what is the significance of 26.2 ??
HAV2RIDE This might be better placed in the vehicles category; and, it seems more logical as a character reference--though one would expected "HAV2DRIV" rather than RIDE...but, who knows--there may be some other significance for this plate's owner...
H8TPYRNT I believe this one means "hate to pay rent" -- he, I can understand. Just like I hate to pay my mortgage. Oh well, some things you can't avoid unless you're homeless, or you win the lottery... Thanks to Randy W. for this one.
HILLYS L8Hillary is late, perhaps?
HOG OARThis might be a VEHICLE reference to a motorcycle, but I can't figure the relationship between HOG and OAR...so I put this one in the "Character" category
HOMEBDY1This also describes me fairly well...
HORSLADObviously some kid who likes equestrians! "Lad" is not a word that gets much use in modern times, but it's short enough to fit on the plate and doesn't imply someone of gradeschool age (which 'boy' would). Thanks to Linda in Massachusetts, who saw this one on the way to NH.
HOUSEHONThe ONLY thing that hits ME at least, to explain this one, is HOUSE HONEY--but hey, I could be grasping at straws...
HTOWN17Not really sure what category this would fall under since I'm not sure what HTOWN17 means (possibly "hometown"?).
HOLLOWUnfortunately, there's no way to know exactly what this driver feels is "hollow."
HUGZ A character who likes giving or getting (or both) hugs, it would appear...
HUSSIE This driver is being honest with herself...
IAM42NUT This is a very nice thought from someone who doesn't take things for granted (fortunate)
I CANDEE Might refer to the car, if not the driver...
ICEFOX Intriguing! Maybe a fan of snow and ice? Someone who thinks she is a beautiful skater? ? A "cold as ice"--but beautiful--woman? No telling!
ILOVEJ This could be in the wrong section (if Romance), but I am treating it as a character style: "I love joints" (or Jaguars--it was, in fact, on a Jaguar)... I could be wrong, however. Thanks to my cousin in Connecticut for this!
II SHARP Ouch! Too sharp? Or, is "verbally sharp" that's actually meant here?
ILVMYPUG This driver wants all to know that she/he loves the family dog--and what breed it is...
IMTHEMAN A definitive individual!... . This one could also fall under the "OBSERVATIONS" category, since he's delivering it with such conviction!
I'M OK My daughter sent me this one; the driver apparently wants to reassure everyone--or else, is simply stating a bare-bones fact... .
IM@DIVA Sure are a lot of them out there!!
IM JIGGY Saw this plate in a WalMart parking lot. Let's hear it for jiggy people everywhere!!
INDOLNT Bravo to this driver, who managed to make a character statement (about WHO???) while at the same time, indicating that he or she has an expansive vocabulary! The definition of "indolent," for those not in the know, is someone who is "..averse to activity, effort, or movement; lazy..."
INVICTUS Saw this on an Oregon state plate -- this vehicle owner is a person with the same attitude as me (I have a Tee-shirt with the same Latin word on it!). This classical Latin word means "Undefeated" ...
ITBE PRI It be...PRI ? = I am ...PRI?? What might PRI be??...
JIGG-1Not quite sure what this refers to; it may be an inside joke for the driver -- unless it's a reference to a dance (who dances a 'jig' anymore? and the two 'G's makes that theory questionable in any case), or a jigsaw puzzle fan (same issue with the 2 'G's)... Thanks to Linda in Massachusetts for this one!
JSMTMUncertain what this stands for...
JUS2BEJust to be--as in "Just to exist" most likely! Provided by Randy W. (North Carolina)
JUSBECUZHaha, here's a driver who is what the Germans would call "trotzig" which means 'defiant' or 'truculent.' Spotted by Randy W. in North Carolina...
KAMIKAZE This word fit perfectly. Wonder if the person is telling us he/she is a Kamikaze style driver, or something else?
KINGZKID Uncertain whether this KID is referring to (1) some royalty connection, (2) the family name KING, or (3) a reverence for Martin Luther King?
KNOLEGE1 The quest for knowledge is an important goal for many people...
KOLD a perpetually chilly person? Or possibly, a coldhearted character? I'm reminded of the old Paula Abdul song "Coldhearted Snake"...
* KOLD * This person seems to have come up with the exact same idea--but KOLD had gotten to the Department of Transportation (DOT) first with the plate request. Thus, this driver went with the * KOLD * option
L8ACE Late ACE (initials)?? Can't figure this one out...
LADYLED Yet another boss, this one female--or, maybe "led" as in "Lead" foot??!
LDYMRSHLPerhaps this driver is a female US Marshall law enforcement officer? Thanks to Randy W. for spotting this plate.
LA TAINAseems an easy one to figure
LAST 3FTInteresting! Perhaps a runner?...
LAZYDUDE Hey--the old saying goes that 'recognizing your weaknesses is the first step to overcoming them' (assuming you actually want to...LOL!)
LEADERPretty self-explanatory! Uncertain only in which field this individual is a leader...
LIKEAROC Perhaps a fan of Dwayne Johnson? I suspect this person probably meant that he/she is "stable/firm/steadfast."
LILMAMMASelf evident...
LITLDEVL Pretty easy to figure out the character type of this mischievous person!
LITLSPORNot quite sure what's behind the "SPOR" part......
LIV4FUNHey, some people don't ever want to take life too seriously...
LIVINITThis driver is living something...life in general, or a particular kind? Maybe simply ran out of space to add "UP"...
LOLITTA Seen at Fayetteville State University, Fayetteville, NC. The vehicle driver was female...
NC allows a "heart" image to be used on a plate; in this case, meaning "Love for Lexie." Not sure, whether the driver was male, or what...
LIVINIT"Living it." Living the dream...Thanks to Randy W. in NC.
LOGO167No way to know what the 167th Logo might be...
LOW L1F3 Hmmmh--directed at others, I wonder--or is this a personal self-assessment? (OMG!--and there are 2 more LowLifes out there somewhere?)
LURKIN Creepy--an individual who apparently does not like to take part in things--who prefers to lurk--to be a lurker. Where, I wonder? And for what purpose? The only think creepier would be "STALKER"...
LUSCIOUSThis could be in the observation/remarks category, or a character assessment (my choice). Likely a female owner of this plate...Thanks to Randy W. in NC.
LUM-B This has got to be a reference to the Lumbee--a Native American tribe indigenous to North Carolina, and I believe, for which the town of Lumberton is named. This driver may be a registered tribal member. Seen in Fayetteville, NC...
LVELYLEO We know this person's Zodiac sign, and appearance (in her opinion, at least)
LYCAEON Sounds like a Greek word or place name...any help out there? Unless, its a friend of Lyca cameras, who misses the Lyca Eon...lost in today's digital world...!
MACMASONA Masonic Lodge member named Mac? A stone mason named Mac?? Any ideas?
MADNESSCan't help but feel a little concerned for this driver!
MANDYCATI've heard of an alley cat, but a MANDYCAT is new to me. Maybe, a feline female named Mandy??
MARY TOY If I read this correctly, this is either Mary suggesting that she is a toy, or Mary suggesting this car is Mary'y toy, or that this [guy] is Mary's toy... not sure which is correct; could be any of these; any help here?... .
MAYHEM13Hmmmnh, seemingly a troublemaker who may possibly be distantly related to LITLDEVL...
MB BEARCould be a name; maybe this is in the wrong category for this one...
MCMLXXX This person's birthday is probably "1980" -- which this Roman number represents
MEGAMANA very positive thinker, this guy, who seems to feel he's 'da bomb'!
MENACEOn a NH plate. Not sure if this driver was warning people that he/she is a menace (on the road, or in general, can't be determined!)...Thanks to my sister Linda in MA for this one!
* MEW * Cat fancier?
MONEYApparently, the thing of greatest importance to this driver... .
MORTIS Latin word meaning "of death"--this plate was seen on (not surprisingly) a soldier's vehicle (you may have heard of RIGOR MORTIS ("rigidity of death")
MR.HEAV1 I wonder exactly what this MR. likes to HEAVE? Or, is "HEAV" a short form of HEAVY? Perhaps his surname actually is HEAV... a mystery!
MVRNSHKR This has GOT to mean "mover and shaker"-- someone who feels that they make a big impact on things. Thanks to Daniel for the contribution!
MSCHERRYEither this individual's family name is "Cherry," or it's a nickname or some sort of physical condition reference?...
MSPIERCE Self-explanatory
MZ KLEEN A fan of Felix from The Odd Couple? Someone who likes things clean, in any case. Here here for good hygiene!
MZ-SMILZ A happy camper! Good for the world--the more the merrier!
MIZZ-VEE Interesting one!!
MOBRLHas to mean something to the plate owner, but it's Greek to me--unless is MOB RULES or something...
MOCA 12 Coffee? Many lovers, so 12...
MOCHABRN The driver happened to be African American...
MONOGRAM Interesting--this could either be embroidered initials (e.g., monogram on a shirt, bathrobe, etc.), or a fan of the old US plastic model company "Monogram" (contemporary competitor of Revell, Italieri, Hasegawa, Tamiya, etc.)--though the latter seems rather unlikely...
MSBHVYN Haven't a clue what this one means...Thanks to Randy W.
NANYWANBWow, there's someone who really WANTS to be a Nanny?! Or, is the real desire to look like Fran Drescher (from the TV show The Nanny)?
NCCODNorth Carolina Cash on Delivery? Hey, a total gamble, that; really, I have no idea...
N-DENYI'm really curious what this one means--if it were "in denial," it would have been set up differently. "N" -- wonder what that implies?
NBH8Y Hmmmhh, this one's a real challenge...NB Hatey? NB HATE Y??
NETRNGRWonder if this is somehow related to "Power Rangers"? The plate rides on a black Toyota Tundra pickup, which probably has no connection with the meaning behind the plate...
NERGIZR A fan of the Energizer Bunny, maybe? Or proclaiming the power to energize anything? .
NEGRA This word is derived from the Latin word "NIGRA," which means the color "black," of course; let's not jump to conclusions about implications here. The plate owner may be Black. Our trusty plate reporter for this one is Black and she took no offense...
NIGHTOWL I sympathise. I am, too.
NITRAYN This one's rather odd...
NOOR Can't make any sense of this one...
OCN GRL a female fan of the sea?
OLDNACL This one is definitely clever--though a chemist in the crowd would probably figure it out in a heartbeat (in fact, that's exactly what happened): NACL (sodium chloride) = salt, so perhaps another ocean fan here...or just an experienced old fart
ONEFLESH This one might be a religious reference, but it gives off a rather weird vibe in any case...
ON TOAST [something] on toast? Chipped beef on toast (soldiers call this SOS [shit on a shingle]
OOAHS Oohs and ahs! for...the car (make was not reported, sorry!)? For the driver? Or, is this a reference that only the driver knows?
ORNERY1 The number 1 on this plate informs us that there is at least one ORNERY person already out there, as well. Perhaps also a No. 2 and No. 3...?
OWTLAW Nice! With a neat alternative spelling...
OW OW Here's a cool plate, either "oh oh"! or "ow" as in "pain"!
OZOG Haven't a clue with this...got any ideas?
PAGE 15 The female name is usually spelled Paige, so I am assuming this reference is to something else (though I could be wrong)...
PAIN Does this driver like it? Want to cause it? Feel it much of the time?...
PATINO This one belongs to someone associated with my neighbor across the street--who happens to be Latino...
PAUPSUKR Intriguing -- this appears to be someone who spends a lot of time sucking on lolipops...bah-boom boom boom...
PH D This individual apparently wants to make sure her/his academic achievement is as well-advertised as is humanly possible. In your FACE!! ;-)
PLATNUMM This reference to Platinum is rather unique (if also a bit obscure)...
PORTURO This one has me baffled, I admit it...
PREMI Makes me think "premi" as in premature baby, (either the driver, or the driver is parent of a premi baby...but I could be totally off base with this guess...
PRIMO 1 Apparently, PRIMO was already out there, so our special driver here added with a number; an alternative would have been to use Latin: PRIMUS means "Number 1". Roman spelling actually used "V" for both "U" and "V", thus PRIMVS. The top Centurion in a Roman Legion was the PRIMVS PILVS (Primus Pilus), the "First Spear"...
PRINCESA You can't but wonder, about the original "PRINCESS", and "PrincesB? Perhaps our paths will also cross one day...
PSKOV No idea what this one represents...
PUN1SHERWonder if this is to be taken as a fact, or is it a warning to the driver's character?
QT 4U This driver had to be female (I'm sure you can figure this one out)...The vehicle was empty when I saw the plate...
RAINBOJO This could be either a nickname OR a personal name--or maybe it's just a very colorful Jo (...unless it's a reference to the Rainbow Coalition)
RAINDNCR A Native American whp performs a Rain Dance, perhaps?
RAKEEDAH This one's too obscure to figure out. Need insider help, here!
RAPTOR Saw this one outside of Big Harry's Tavern in Fayetteville. Very cool, since I was a dinosaur fan as a kid!
RAYDAR 1 Interesting variant of RADAR. A message for Law Enforcement?....
R.C.L.C. The significance of this letter combination escapes me... Can anyone help?
RDHZRD 6 Apparently, there are other drivers out there who consider themselves equally dangerous...?
RED VLVT Intriguing...velvet is nice!
RGL8RS Not sure what this driver and friends actually "regulate," but it might be something interesting...
RICHGRL Wish I knew what kind of vehicle this girl was driving (not recorded, too bad!). Thanks to Donovan for this one! (Seen in Raleigh, NC). Not sure if this chick is really wise to announce this on her plate--but if she really is rich, she can afford some bodyguards, no?...
RIDR Not sure exactly what kind of rider!
ROCKYN56 A person after my own heart--I'm a rocker, too! (play guitar in a rock band)
ROLLOCKI Not quite sure about the intent of this one...
RLTWNot sure what RLTW might stand for/represent ("real tightwad," maybe?...Supplied by Randy W. (thanks!)...
RUBYCN 9 This one caught my interest because the Rubicon was the river along the northwest Italian border that Caesar, as a military commander outside of Italy, was not legally permitted to cross when accompanied by a legion. Caesar ignored this law and crossed anyway, setting off the civil wars with his former Triumvir partner, Pompey (Caesar won), which brought about the end of the Roman Republic. This might be some sort of video game (like HALO, or WARCRAFT), with the "9" being this player's number?
S8NIGIRLNot sure what the S8NI stands for, "SAITNI"? "SEIGHT-NI"? Or is the "8" standing in for some letter, as "3" does sometimes for "E"? ... .
SATANICOA Lucifer aficionado, perhaps? Hard to nail down a category for this one... .
SCARY Now here's a real generalization--practically anything could be scary (even the driver's face...)
SCIMITAR Cuts like a knife!--a scimitar is an edged weapon with a curved blade (type of sword), with origins in southeast or central asia, but today considered a Middle Eastern (i.e., Islamic) or Turkish weapon (Ottoman Empire time frame). Does this driver consider him/herself sharp as a scimitar, or is there some other concept at work? Thanks to Randy W. for this one.
SEA MOON Very descriptive!
SEXE Variations on "Sexy" are always popular...
SEXI BLK In fact, this was probably a reference to the vehicle--which happened to be a black sports car...
SEXY LUM Not sure if the LUM represents initials, or a nickname? Or, Sexy Lumbee (a local Native American tribe)...
S*EVIL Possibly related to EVIL MR -- another fan of the Dark Side?
SHEYSTOY er...this person knows his/her place, it truly seems; OR, perhaps the CAR itself is the "toy" Shey is referring to...
SHIS SUEI'm wondering if this is a unique spelling take on the dog breed "Shih tzu" (which originated in China)? Sounds pretty similar...
SHORTEE I'm assuming this person is expressing self-confidence regardless of height...
SHURIMETPossibli "Sure I met"--more likely, I'me just grasping at straws...
SIGMAPAT Perhaps a fraternity/sorority reference??
SLKYLEGS You can certainly make a logical guess at the driver's gender--unless this happens to be simply a fan of silky legs...
SMOKY Could this refer to a State Trooper or law enforcement officer of some sort? Or, maybe it's a fan of Cheech and Chong...
SPICE-1 This driver's character is spicy, perhaps?
SOM CHOCI'm assuming that this one means "some chocolate;" hey, I love chocolate, but as a diabetic I can't eat it. Wonder if this is an ethnic plate referring to 'brown'--no matter!
SSHINE Sounds bright and cheerful! "Sunshine"? Wonder if this person and MS-SMILZ know each other? Or, perhaps it's just a fan of solar energy and sunny dayz? (this "Z" thing is catching!)
STANHOSE Is this some sort of garden/lawn device that I'm not familiar with?? Sort of doubt it, but at the moment have no alternative theory
STUNNINGWell! This certainly says a lot...
THE ONE Pretty clear that this person considers him/herself pretty important...
TOPATE#1Wonder what this means? TO PATE? TOP ATE? Not a North Carolina plate.
SYNCITYLike this one! General character observation, I wonder, or a reference to the movie of that name (Sin City)?
TOPD 1The obvious assumption is TOP DOG 1...but maybe it's something else...
TORTURE Might think twice about meeting this person...
TRE JOHNTree John? Not sure about the "TRE" part
TREWALKRTree Walker? Or a part of a first name + Walker?. "tre" as part of Spanish "tres" (three)? Any relation to the previous??
TRLRHIPS Ouch!...I sense some pain--or else this driver/plate owner has a really generous sense of humor to go along with the Trailer Hips!
TRUDIVAThe number of women who consider themselves to be Divas, true or otherwise, seems to be grossly underestimated...
TSCHUSS Very casual German expression for "Bye Bye!" -- closely related to Italian "CIAO!" Probably someone of German descent, or who lived in Germany
TURF BOS Yet another fan of personal power
TX-REBELMight be Texas rebel, but I'm putting my money on the TAX REBEL explanation...
TYPHON Wonder if this driver is indicating that his/her character is as volatile as a typhoon?...
UNDERDAWG A lot of people find it easy to relate to and sympathize with the "underdog"...
UNTMOCHA "Mocha" pops up a lot on license plates, together with "brown" and in reference to color, sometimes as a euphemism for African-American ethnicity. This person seems to be of the opinion that YOU NOT "brown" (African-American?)...
UTPROSIM The UT could be a university, but I don't follow the rest...
VANSTOY6 Similar situation to SHEYSTOY shown earlier--and probably this CAR is the toy also, as opposed to the DRIVER (the car is the toy)...
VEC 22The VEC could be initials, but hard to believe there are 23 other plates with VEC, if that were the case; of course, the 22 might have some other significance to the driver...
VENEMOU$ Very cool!
VICEWonder which vice this person refers to--or is it all of them???
VINTAGE1The vehicle was not a vintage car, apparently; perhaps the driver was feeling "vintage" when he or she applied for the plate...
VIXENHmmmh! Got to wonder if this is a fan of the '80s vintage all girl metal rock band (i.e., Jan Kuehnemund and company--VIXEN put out some great music!)--er...or someone it might be worth getting to know???
WARHORSENeat plate! Also cross-referenced under "Military" and "Vehicles"
WEBUGUI doubt this is a pest control company, but apparently the driver(s) are pests to somebody, and proud of it...
This one seems unique; no idea what the reference is...
WHTBOX? Not sure why it matters, which box...
WHEEWHEE This is a WEIRD one. I'm assuming, given the "H" after "W," that this is referring to laughter of some sort, or excitement from an amusement park ride --or maybe it's a play on the GEICO commercial with that incredibly annoying pig "...did the little piggy say 'whee whee whee' all the way home?" I think it's unlikely to be the humorous reference to feminine toiletry (Number 1)...
WHTALADY A self-confident female individual, or some dude reveling over his girlfriend?
WHIT-10Uncertain...
WHT-NUPE Odd! WHT for "What" most likely, but NUPE? WHAT-NUPE? What am I missing?...
WILDFISHHmmmmh...as opposed to a tame fish? This entry might actually belong in the sport category, if the reference is associated with sport fishing....
WILDFIRE This could be a lot of things, but I'm making the assumption that the owner is referring to his/her own character...
WIRED Great plate!
WISEMAN7 There are, it seems, more than the original "3" wisemen... .
WOOZ-BOO I'm really curious what the idea might be behind this one!
WWGEDDIE Interesting. Is this an alternate of Jedi? Or, perhaps merely initials and a name? Some reference to the band RUSH's bass player, Geddy Lee? Only the driver knows!...
YEHOYADA Wonder if this is related to the old "yada, yada, yada" expression?
YNGPHILYA young horse fan? In southwestern slang, a "filly" can be a girl (actually it's a young, female horse)--but "filly" may already have been taken by someone, so PHILY was an option. Or, maybe this person happens to be young and from Philadelphia?
X QUIZIT Cleverly presented!
ZIDSNo idea what a "ZID" is--and there is apparently more than one of them if the "S" represents a plural (ZIDS could be a nickname...).
ZIP DRVA computer geek?
