A buddy of mine sent me this picture over the weekend. A true GRM nut he pilots a 944 and miata. But in the easily missed state of Delaware he found...

Glad I didn't get that plate, looks dorkier than I had originally anticipated.

That plate needs to be on a Porsche or a rusted-out bucket (or at least the new KIA reasonably priced car).

Anything between those two makes it cheesey

I'd love to have a Stig plate. I've been looking at what's available - "the stig" "not stig" and "stig" are taken. I thought about "TEH STIG" but most people wouldn't get it. "A STIG" would also almost be an inside joke since there's so many Stigs around. "SCHUSTIG" is a possibility but it'd take too long to explain to most people. "I STIG I" is also available. This would go on an E30 325is so I think it'd be OK. Thoughts? Ideas?

It's my first day as an instructor for the SCCA - WDCR PDX program. I'm in the paddock scanning the student assignment sheet and hoping fervently that I've drawn something with fewer than say, 250 HP. I read down the column of instructor names noting who drew the Civics, the Sentras, the Miatas, the Fit, the Hyundais....Who's the poor bastard who got the guy in the e92 M3? The ~400+ HP e92 M3~??...

That'd be me.

I walked over to the car to greet the driver, my student. As I got closer I noted the license plate:


...And felt a whole lot better.

Turned out that in addition to being a big Top Gear fan he totally had "the gift". Smooth, open to instruction, listened, asked questions. He got faster all weekend and was effusive in his thanks.

That the car was incredibly capable while being completely showroom stock - tires and all - was nice too.

Now, if you had a Mustang, or otherwise overwhelmingly American Car, you could get the plate "Hammond"

Correction, if you had a Bowler Nemesis, or an Opel Kadett, you could have the plate "Hammster"

Is there an anti-Stig? You know, like the whole Spy vs. Spy series from Mad Magazine?

Also in Delaware, near my office, there's a yellow Monaro/GTO with black wheels and black stripes plated "IMSTIG". Maybe we have a lot of cheesy plates here.
