    I'm picking up my new 70D in late June and I want to pick out a unique license plate for it. I'll be registering the car in Michigan. Does Michigan (or someone else) have a website where you can check to see if a particular vanity plate is available? It would be nice to know if my ideas are used or not before I go to the Secretary of State to get a vanity plate.

    Does anyone know the vanity plate rules (number of characters, spaces, etc) for Michigan?

    Some vanity plate ideas:
    GO ELECT
    EV REVO
    ELEC CAR
    ALL 4 EV
    TESLA EV
    EL3CTRIC
    ELECTR1C
    ALL ELEC
    100 ELEC

    Any other ideas?

    You get seven characters (letters and numbers only), including spaces. Michigan's plate rules can be found here: SOS - Personalized Plates

    The plate checker can be found here: http://services.sos.state.mi.us/plates/

    Well, my avatar tells you what I liked. With 7 characters possible, I could have spelled it out properly. Only 6 here though, with a possible 7th as a space or dash only.

    Others that made my short list (adjusted for your 7 character max) were 'KIX GAS', 'AMPRAGE', 'AMPED', 'AMPEATR' and 'PLUGZEN'.

    I thought of putting a space between the EV and the OLVD to push the EV aspect, but didn't think many people would get that... :confused:

    Thanks for the info! I'm glad MI has a plate checker. Looks like if I do a university plate I only get 6 characters (with a standard plate I get 7).

    PASTGAS

    SUNLDED, like unleaded, but sunleaded if your solar powered.

    I like PASTGAS, funny, witty, saw it on a MN Tesla.
