Licence plate, need some ideas

The TC Special has WINDBURN, the E-Type has '66 XKE, the MGA has FRESHAIR. Past MGA has A COOL A, and a hot rod had 34HOTROD.

Now the 120 will need a plate, 8 characters… I’m drawing a blank. Anyone have anything fancy? Are there any slang or nic-names for the XKs?

Does your state allow year of manufacture plates on classic cars? You obviously can’t have a personalized plate but I like having them on my cars because it is “period correct” and they look better than a modern one.

Have you started pricing out your missing bits yet?

What about

MONEY PIT

So, my smart ass response this morning was the best I could do on short notice. i have a really good idea about every 5 years, so this is hard for me.
Was expecting to see a bunch of good ideas from all the quick thinking geniuses here. With all day to think about it, here’s my real one.

WON LEMAN
or
WON LEMNS

Yea, I considered LE MANS but it’ll seem like the car’s name or model. It’d have to be WONLEMAN, 8 char.

How about
EXKAY120
BRIT-CAR
120RDSTR
XK CLUB
TOOMUCH$

We’re allowed punctuation too, each takes a 1/2 or whole space though.

I had a list of 15 before I came up with WINDBURN for the TC. One of our club members has the club’s initials: BCCWNC.

NO. My wife has only a passing acquaintance with the costs of these toys. No need to open that box any further.

Yes, a consideration. I’ll have to see if a UK plate will be legal. THAT would be cool as these can be made to order.

Sorry already taken!

Go to a swap meet and get yourself a pair of Year Of Manufacture license plates.
Glue magnets to the backside of each plate.

Then, you can temporarily stick them over top of your ‘real’ plates whenever you want to.

I chose to not sand down and repaint these 1956 license plates, so they retain their well used ‘patina’.
When you go for a drive, try to remember to remove the old plates first. I forgot twice, and one time they fell off, making a scratching sound as they slid down the street.

Not a bad idea.

How about cop bait such as 132mph
