We spent much of the last week driving around New Hampshire doing research for a new Food Lovers' guidebook. And we have to say that our neighbors to the north have raised the art of the vanity license plate to a new level. Who knew that a 6'' by 12'' piece of metal could be such a vehicle (so to speak) for self expression? Just ask ARTGAL, SHOELVR, and IPOD-DJ.

Perhaps the cleverest plate we saw was the driver's education car (NERVOUS), while the most climate-conscious were no doubt ECOCAR (on a blue Prius) and CUTCO2. Yet perhaps our personal favorites were the white Nissan Maxima (GR8GFT) and the smoking hot little red convertible (FUNFNFN).

One thing's for sure—you don't have to check your registration to remember your license tag when your plate reads MMRYKPR.
