Default New license plates came today!

Just got these in the mail today.
When I applied and saw this was available I thought ... "Seriously? Nobody's thought of this until now?"

LOL



The coolest part of this is that I play in a 10 piece festival/show band and I bought the car with only gig money.
Every time I did a show last year I stuck the money in a bucket & by the end of summer I had saved up enough to go shopping.
So basically, playing guitar bought my Corvette.

Sorry I'm a bit slow, but other than wanting to chase down a gtr, what does "play gtr" mean?

Sweet! I paid for mine with some woodworking I did on the side, so it feels good to get something nice for work well spent.

Gtr - I assume means guitar.

Play gtr = play guitar. He said he bought the Vette completely with money saved from his side gig playing guitar in a band. OP...cool story and congrats on the Vette!

When I first read it, I thought it meant you wanted to race ( play) a GTR.

I had to Google "Nissan GTR" to even find out what that was.
The last Datsun/Nissan I owned was a 1972 240Z.
If I were looking to race anyone I wouldn't do it in a C4 convertible, I'd try to borrow my bosses Lamborghini Murcielago.
I also have a friend with a GT40 (a real one) and another with a Hellcat.
Both are somewhat peppy rides. LOL

Yes, PLAY GTR stands for 'Play Guitar'.
You could go so far as to say I .......... "Got the car for a song". Bah-Dum, TSS!

That's awesome! My plate says "1996 C4".
Also surprised no one else had it.

I quit smoking and used the saved money to buy my Corvette.

Like the plate!
Mine says "FYT CLB" after the movie. People ask why and I say "It's because every time I work on it, I beat the crap out of myself". It was the wife's idea. She got tired of patching me up.

That is a bad *** story. I love it!


I want to get one for the 'Vette Kart that says: LUVRHAT
B/c people seem to either REALLY love it....or it REALLY irritates them.
