    My family got a tradition of naming our cars, usually my kids will name them. This time my wife named our truck Aniki. It means Big Brother in Japanese.

    Disaster, because shortly after signing what I had to go through with the vehicle and dealer was a disaster.

    The girl who handed them to me almost peed herself, you just gotta make sure that whoever does the final hand-off has a sense of humor!
    Really as long as it's not profane the automated filters aren't too savvy, it's the DMV employees that catch the naughty plates around here. I flirted and made a cute young lady laugh (told her my mom chose the plates) and I was sent off with not only a blessing, but with a mission to continue doing this with every new vehicle I can.

    I've just bought a very clean Suzuki Sidekick 4 door... and my gears are burnin' up lol

    Tried to get FN2187 on a custom plate but it was rejected through the online process as "potentially offensive". I think if I go in and talk to/show them why i want it then it will pass. My guess is that it was too close to "FN247". Other than FN, I can't figure out why it would be rejected. And yes, the force is strong with this nerd :)

    I had it for six months=It was a '69. Did a lot of work to get it running, then found out I couldn't drive it due to a gimpy knee (clutch issues) and a bad arm (no power steering). Had engine gone over, new wheels and tires (OEM), rebuilt hubs, and had to sell it at a loss. It was my second and I LOVE them! Broke my heart. The wife gave me her 4Runner to replace it and we got her a RAV. 4Runner & RAV were bought cash when we retired so we wouldn't have any big bills. I love the 4Runner but really miss the FJ! :(

    As a retired Wildlife Biologist, I chose "Mud Sloth" because 1) FJ's are so slow; 2) Sloths are the only mammal with naturally green fur (a species of algae found only in sloth fur).

    One-at-this-price stripper. Bought new 32yrs ago, a $13K leftover. Added Detroit TruTrac and 1”rear spring spacer. Factory AC kit and roof rack bought at dealer cost at time of purchase, still blows ice cold 32yrs later. 2022 AG ORP all stock.
    Goldie…..haven’t come up with a name for the new kid yet….maybe ‘Tank’ since it weighs almost 1K# more than Goldie.
