    for all of you that know my truck it has a personal plate on it that reads G1PRIME. I just bought a chevy suburban and the plate Ideas I had are all taken.
    Does any one know of a way I can Shorten AUTOBOT, and that you could still make it out? when you read it. zero and o are the same thing in va so that will not work.

    Don't most states allow 7 figures? Autobot would work for that, unless it's been taken. If you gotta shorten it, I would say drop the U.

    In all honesty, if I were to put it on my plate out here (regardless of how it was spelled), I'm not sure if many people would get it whatsoever. There are a lot of vanity plates in CA and it seems as if more than half are simply in-jokes.

    Does it have to be Autobot? Why not Magnus, Prowl, Rumble, or Slobodan Milosevic

    A bit of advice from Rammy: about a year after Star Trek: Deep Space Nine first came out, I hopped on the bandwagon with a vanity plate of my own. I chose Deep <then a space> 9, and I thought I was oh-so very clever with that one. A week after I got it I drove it to a con, and got rave reviews from all the fans that saw it, several people even left notes on my car saying how cool they thought it was.

    After that tho, I had to get rid of it. Because the "space" was read aloud, to non-trek fans it just said "Deep 9", and you can imagine the hoots, whistles, and open-mouth-insert-you-know-what gestures I got along the freeway.

    So take a page from my book and get one that the fan and non-fan alike can recognize and make sense of. Otobot sounds right when read aloud, even if it looks nothing like the real word. Have fun with it tho, that's the important part, and one to grow on.

    I'm sure it's already taken in many states but I like "DCPTCON".

    And y'know, GEN1FAN isn't too bad either. Or TFG1FAN.

    i have been thinking it over, and with the suburban painted white, with a blue interior. And when I do reapint the truck down the road I'm thinking of painting it back to the orginal light blue with white one the bottom of the truck. I'm thinking on going with MAGNUS, but that is already taken in virginia. So the only other think I can think of is UMAGNUS. What do you all think about that?
