George, need some help with the translation on this one.
Hint: read the plate frame and then the plate! (I just got it.)
Nope, nothing clicks.  C'mon, tell us...
Got it, with help from Chuck.  It is pretty good.

How about THX 1138 as a literary allusion..

Not really Mini related ... but entirely appropriate for a Mini driver ;)

Clever. :)  I saw some good ones on the thread! Glad I'm not the only one who likes a personalized plate.

Not on a mini but on a 'tie-dyed' VW bug that was owned by a Grateful Dead fan; Doobie 1.  Spotted in the mountains of California on our way to Sonoma for the Mini Challenge race a couple of years ago.

Leyland AUS used "MOKIN IS NOT A WEALTH HAZARD"  (wordplay on an old anti smoking ad) as an advertising slogan back in the day...  Someone might have a copy of the sticker they used..

I still have one I've used over the years on a couple of different Minis I've taken on long drives in the U.S.. Right now it is on a South African estate. MINI2ER    (Mini Tour)

I've got 2CAMINI on mine. It makes sense if you know what I did to the engine.

On my classic is "MINIAC" (see my profile pic...it's small, but you can make it out.  I left the UK plate on, underneath)
I don't remember now whether I got the idea from someone here or from the plate that came on my old yellow Mini I got out of Ontario, which had the same Ontario plate (MINIAC

My 2009 Bini's plate is "VE9AA" - which is for those that don't know, my Amateur Radio call sign....also my user name here. ;-)

My Wife's 2012 Bini says "LILRIPR" (Little Ripper) which I copied from someones classic plate here......I don't recall who now....in her rear window we have small white stick on letters that say "OMG wheeeeee"  She gets a lot of laughs over that.

Nice to see you Latka !
