LIPETSK - name of a city in USSR that I have left for USA. I was the first one to leave and to come to USA from that city...true historic fact...I decided that I am entitled to carry the name of the city on my car...

BRKVCHS - less creative, just the last name (possessive).

Here's a couple of custom license plates on Volvo cars:

So Swede...



Goteborg...



And although the plate below isn't OSD related....

Football fans should appreciate the humor from this alum from the University of California.

Although this Cal grad is driving a red Volvo. (Cal's colors are blue & gold and Stanford wears red)

With this license plate...

Who do you think he wants to win the annual "Big Game" between California and Stanford?

Beet Red...

Special vanity plate issued to FCC licensed amateur radio operators. (I'll have to get a photo of the auto with the plate uploaded somewhere ...)

I live in PA but bought my CPO V70R in NJ which has front plates in that state. The indent from the dealer plate/frame I removed had me purchase a Swedish replica plate from Griots. I tried to come up with some ideas and decided to make the R engine number the plate number. Here's what was on my old R and now the family's 850 Platinum (same front plate issues.)

Here's a personalized plate idea...

I delivered an S60 to one of my Overseas Delivery customers this weekend. His idea for a personalized plate is to replicate the Swedish temporary plate that he received on his car in Europe. He liked the simplicity of the three letters and three numbers on his temporary Swedish plate:

He has applied for a California personalized license plate. For privacy I have not posted the three numbers on his plate here.

SLK_ _ _

I told him that's an easy one to remember as SLK could stand for "Swedes Love Kaffe"

* In case you did not know "kaffe" is the Swedish word for coffee and Scandinavians do love their java - Look at this global ranking of countries by coffee consumption per capita and notice how many of the top ten countries are in Scandinavia!

Does California require both front and back plates???? I am thinking he is leaving his OSD plate on the front and the custom plate on the back, both with the same numbers/letters??? Hum...........that's a thought.

Greg,

California is a two plate state. Although not everyone complies with this regulation. However I believe my customer will attach both California plates to his car with the California rear plate on top of the Swedish plate. He might be displaying his front Swedish plate in his garage?
