Posted:So.. I was thinking of changing the appearance of my number plate, currently it's a big white one with maroon letters, and a dealer plate frame which says Caloundra City Auto ubblol

So yeah. Have decided to give the 10mm socket wrenches a bit of a breather, and seeing how a new number plate will make my little cxi go much faster (hehe), I'm window shopping here:

Personalised Plates QLD

It's going to be 3 numbers, 3 letters (keeping my current plate, just changing the appearance), on a black 00 EK hatch, with black rims/polished lip.

I'm not sure whether it'll look nicer as a slim front and a normal rear, or slim front and rear.

Colour wise, I'm thinking maybe white on black or silver on black, or black on silver or white. Something simple.. no flowers, sunsets or football themes thanks.

So my panel of creative advisors.. what do you think? Meet my Lola ubblove:

ps. yes yes.. some of you racing types have mentioned she needs to be even lower than the king lows (30mm) I put her down to. One thing at a time.. wink

pps. These pictures are Lola at the moment.. Past changes have been documented lightly in pics here:
small gallery on myspace mmm elbow grease.. biggrin

I have this cool number plate that I aquired in Ireland POI 9151
9151 is apparently juggle talk. Plaus it was on old (very unloved ) black bug. But the car yard owner let us liberate the plated in return for spin demo. Dodgy one it was two. But when people have never seen fire its all funky.

Soooo can you use POI and a number from Joshes simulator

Posted:lol You know.. pretty car with balls.. The decision was obvious tongue

Actually, no, don't know any songs by The Kinks other than Waterloo Sunset..

Car was initially a Lily, but now she looks more like a Lola. Was thinking more Run Lola Run or even Copacabana.. I like it tongue

Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl
With yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there
She would merengue and do the cha-cha
And while she tried to be a star, Tony always tended bar
Across a crowded floor, they worked from eight til four
They were young and they had each other
Who could ask for more?


wink

So yeah.. license plate suggestion anyone? Colour scheme and sizing more than anything. Gnor, pay attention.. I'm keeping my current number/letter combo tongue hug

ps. Gnor, need to sign in to myspace to view the rest..

Thats a very sexy car smile
Its very shiney too.

btw - "9151 is apparently juggle talk." - Yep go here and type 9151 in, then click "juggle" - thats a high low shower it is smile ubblove

"Colour scheme and sizing" - black number plate with white numbers, and I reckon 1m square should do the trick wink How can you change the size of your numberplate? Surely its a standard size?

Posted:You can have decorated numberplates in Oz?!

Over here its a set size, colour, and font. Anything else is illegal.

I would just get a standard black and white one. Seems like it would go with the car shrug
