At a car show, I saw this plate on a hot rod with a huge, supercharged V8 engine.

"GLBWRMR".

It was a couple of years ago, so I may not have the correct letters.

I haven't heard the term Exploder used for many a year....the nick name of the first generation Ford Explorer.

It was an awesome ride till about 60K miles, then the clutches in the TQ would let go. Ford had a back order log of 3 months. Took mine a part and had the local transmission guys cut the tq open and put new clutches in it.
Cost me about 250 bucks or so. Ford wanted 350+ for a factory one.

In our state of Oregon in the U.S., the state issued plates are a combination of three letters followed by a combination of three numbers. A friend of mine had a 1968 VW convertible for 20 years with state issued plates that said...
