My 1990 red SPG (Big Red) needs to get Classic plates, which can be personalized in Minnesota. 7 characters or less.

I'm looking for advice on possible plates. BIG RED is already taken, unfortunately.

After playing with Google trans, I have the following Swedish words as possible choices:

STORROD ("stor röd" or Big Red),
SNABB (fast),
TROFAST (loyal),
TIDLOS (timeless or classic),
LIVLIG (lively),
GEDIGEN (solid, genuine).

Any thoughts? I appreciate the input. I'm swinging by the DMV in the morning, so any quick responses are greatly appreciated.

What about variants like BIGGRED, BIGREDD, etc?

My favorite for a red car, which someone on here has for their 9k Aero, is KETCHUP. It might even be an MN car, so maybe KECHUP, CATSUP etc.

GEDIGEN has a nice ring to it. Of those you've listed I like it best. Kinda sounds like Greg, too. A name I'm also partial to. :)

SNABB looks Saabish, though I'd probably drop another 'A' in there. That would be less unique, though.

I agree with Saabeh. Even the plate I have on my Comm Ed is confusing to people. The plate is "CMEMRTIV", but I have had people ask me "what does see me mister tiv mean?"

I like the idea of going with something like Ketchup on a red car. There is a yellow beetle in my town that has "chiquita". You could make it a double entendre and do something like "Catchup".
