So I had a few questions regarding license plates for our bluesmobile builds. Obviously BDR 529 would be the goal plate. Unfortunately, when I went to the DMV to ask about this, I was informed it isn't possible. California DMV will not accept any applications for a new license plate with a letter-letter-letter-number-number-number combo. I even tried all my options with custom, antique, AND veteran plates, but to no avail. ow I run into new options and I was hoping for the board members input. I've seen a few on the board that I really like, and I wanted to make sure that no one would be offended if I used their ideas. The top 4 for me right now are "ONAMISN" or "ONAMSON", "BLUBROS" or "BLUSBRO", or "JKNELWD", or "BLUSMBL" I think the on a mission ones are my favorite because before it's done it's a mission to get the car complete, and after it's done it's clearly the movie quote... Any other ideas? Or, if any members already have one of these and don't want me using it, please let me know...
I found an easy way to check whether a given plate in a given state is taken. Just go to carfax.com and put in the plate and the state right on the home page. (In Illinois, BDR 529 is currently registered to a 2005 Toyota Avalon!) Of course, it won't tell you if you can't get a 3 letter, 3 number combo in a given state.
Edit -- And it might make you think a combo is available when it's really not, or vice versa (see below).

Here's a couple of plates you'll see on daBay often ...
You are bidding on a Screen Accurate Blues Brothers Bluesmobile Metal Stamped License Plate. This plate is reproduced exactly as it appeared on screen. The plate comes complete with a June 1980 registration sticker. This auction is for 1 (one) plate and 1 (one) sticker. This is our replacement plate from our previous release. The previous version was limited to 100 pieces, and had a blue stripe around the plate. This plate is our "correct" in-stock plate, with no blues stripe. Our previous supplier would not make the exact plate because of BMV regulations from Illinios. The are the correct color (Navy Blue on White) and size. They are not cheap plastic with vinyl letters, they are REAL Metal Stamped tags.
I ordered this plate , because they wouldn't issue me BDR 529 . It was supposed to be short form for " mall wrecker " . When I opened the envelope . it didn't look the same . Asked my 7yr old to read it , and she says " mall worker " the same as I saw it . Well good thing was the gov took them back -5$ and let me make up new ones . They turned down my other choice " MALLKILR " . Had other ideas as "BLUMO440" "IH8ILNZY" "440BLUMO" "SCMODS" ".
