    So my weekend toy is old enough to be sporting collector's plates. It's a 1990 Camaro with the 5.0L. Largely stock, except for intake/exhaust/a few goodies and a little suspension work. The car is a very rare Maui Blue Metallic, and in beautiful condition throughout.

    In Minnesota when a car hits 20 years old you can give it collector's plates, which I want to do.

    In MN we get seven letters/numbers for vanity plates, so what are some good ideas? Since the car isn't super fast, no "I8AVIPR" or anything like that, but I want something related to the car itself.

    Ideas?

    ...or something with 1990 in it, 'cause when most people see it, they're gonna wonder what year it is.

    thats a good point, as 1990 was the year with the lowest production ever thanks to the UAW strike, with a mere 32,XXX units produced.

    i believe the color is one of like 1800 ever built. not RARE, but very very very uncommon.

    In AZ, it's 25 years, so I have another 5 model years before my Eunos (Miata/MX5) is eligible.

    Considering the kind of vehicle they are for I suggest:

    D8RAPST

    then you can cruise the high school parking lots :D

    It really depends on what message you are wanting to get across. Here are a few ranging from mild to wild. Good luck!

    Cruising the high school parking lot for a date on Friday makes sense when one drives a Camarro with personalized plates especially when the plate matches the hair do.....all he needs is to say he lives in a single wide and claim he's half Cherokee LOL
