[poll] License plate bingo

dinogrl has suggested an open contest to name the vanity plate for the 1967 Volvo. I had thought SMFH, for "Swedish Meatball From Hell." I'd also been toying with finding a period license plate, which the Oregon DMV will allow. (They treat it as a vanity plate, basically.) In the mid-1960s, Oregon plates said "Pacific Wonderland."

In my continuing tradition of living way too much of my life in public, I shall throw the question open to the readership of this blog. Here's a poll about that burning issue so characteristic of our times. If I get some good suggestions, I'll run a voting poll sometime next week, with prizes.

Poll #1085635 New license plate for the Volvo

What should the Volvo's new plates be?

The normal, current Douglas Fir plates (trying to blend in)
1(2.5%)
Period license plates to match the car (pretending to blend in but secretly hoping to be noticed)
22(55.0%)
SMFH (meaningless to everyone but me, which will enhance my mysterious charisma)
5(12.5%)
CLOWNS (a desperate cry for help)
2(5.0%)
CRIT ME (reeks of writer)
1(2.5%)
Something else I'll suggest in comments
9(22.5%)


ETA: Oregon only permits six alphanumerics on a vanity plate, btw, so do please let that influence your suggestions.
