Following on from a thread in the 58-60 section Restifier52 was showing his SQRBIRD plate

Who else has custom plates on their cars?

Here's a few of mine

Both of my Thunderbirds do. They are R GO and AR GO respectively. For those of you in America you would not understand these plates, as they relate to an old puppet show that was on tv called The Thunderbirds. The catch cry was, "Thunderbirds are go" hence my plates. Many a head scratching at car shows trying to figure it out, turns into that light bulb moment when they do.

Those of you who did know the show, have also worked out my user name as well....Lady Penelope was the female star of the show, and as I have named my '60 Penelope, that did me for a handle.

I don't have custom plate, but I do have vintage Ohio plates from 1960:

These plates are mint and original. I was told they were used in 1960 on someone's summer car and have never seen winter. Best looking part on my car!

I also bought my Dad vintage plates for his 1956 Thunderbird and 1957 Eldorado. I got them from the same seller, so both of his cars have the same plate number. I had to sand blast and repaint them, however, they were pretty rough.

These are the original plates and dealer trim on the car.

Just a very cool 1929 plate on our 29 Coupe.
