I've been seeing a car driving around my neighbourhood with personalised rego plates, reading 'iced'.

The car? A Volvo. Clever.

How i came to have personalized plates

I was always of the opinion that to have personalized plates was a sure sign that you were a wanker .

I now have as most of you know BSHNUT . That came about is that my two sons really got back at me and got them for me one Christmas. Everything was okay until the first outing with our LOOSE Nuts 4WD GROUP, they noticed them almost instantly and knowing my earlier views on personalized plates, gave it to me big time, hanging it on me real bad .

Inwardly , I smiled, my sons had got back at the old man in a most creative way and the fact that they knew how the pack of b#stards I hang around with would react, it was a double whammy .

I am happy with the fact that they thought of something that would reflect a crafty sense of humour with a tint of revenge .

As Challenglee has mentioned - they're a one-off fee up here, and then you've got it forever. No yearly maintenance fees or anything. Small transfer fee if you're changing ownership but that's it. My wife has had hers on three different vehicles over the last seven years without a single charge.

There's a range of different plates at different prices. The standard ones, in a range of colour, are $495. But you have to have letters and numbers.

Themed ones run from $465, and Euro style plates are $595, but you have to have letters and numbers as well.

Then there's prestige plates, which are a different physical construction, can be had in a range of colours, and can have all letters (up to 6) - such as 'iced'. They're $2295. Used to be quite a bit less.

More info at Private Plates Queensland.
