Some of them a little creative (others not so much). In fact, during a recent trip to watch the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona a good 15% to 20% of the Porsches in the PCA paddock had a vanity plate of some sort. Here are just a few of them.
I'm always interested in how creative people can get in such a limited space like a license plate.
