We found some vanity plates this week that could only come from The 207. That's because Mainers have their own language and wicked cool accent and like to translate that onto our crazy Maine vanity license plates.
Happy October! In honor of Autumn kicking into high gear, we proudly bring you another pumpkin-spiced-leaves-are-falling edition of Maine Vanity Plates. Culled from the collection on Instagram of Vanity of Maine, we've got an excellent assortment for you this week.
Today's theme is "By The Numbers" and all the plates featured have include numbers. Usually, the numbers are employed to help spell out a word, but you'll see other creative uses in this nifty little photo gallery.
If you were traveling on the highways and byways of Maine, you may have seen a wacky vanity license plate or two. There are zillions of them out there in Maine. Why do you ask? Because in Maine, you can put ANYTHING on your license plate. That's right, ZERO restrictions. Is it a good idea? Probably not, but it makes for interesting viewing on your journey. Thanks to Morgan, the king of Maine Vanity Plates, we have collected our faves from the past summer. Check out his amazing Instagram page for many, many more.
I am so thankful right now for the things that are constant in my life. There is so much change and disruption. The things that have made it through the pandemic so far are some of the strongest forces in the world. My friends. My family. Good Maine microbrews. Classic Rock. And crazy and ridiculous Maine Vanity License Plates. Thank you, Mainers for staying the course and keeping it more than real on the roads of our fine state.
I'm a big free speech guy but I'm just gonna come right out and say it. I don't know if it's really a great idea that we are allowed to put anything, and I mean ANYTHING, on our Maine license plates. Do you know why it's not a good idea...
So much disruption in our world. Global pandemics. Social unrest. Shark attacks. Up is down, left is right, cats and dogs living together. I mean, really. But there is one constant in our lives that continue. It's the fact that Mainers continue to come up with the most creative, insightful, and profane license plates on the planet. We put things on our license plates that we would never tell a friend or co-worker, let alone a complete stranger who happens to be passing us on the Maine Turnpike. Our friend Morgan is the King of Maine Vanity on Instagram and knows all and sees all when it comes to the Vanity Plate in the Pine Tree State.
Morgan-the King of Maine Vanity Plates is back with another amazing batch of vanity license plates ranging from the insightful to the outright rude and inappropriate. Mainers continue to amaze us with what they will put on their cars. T
Here we go with another week of crazy Maine vanity plates as curated from the one and only Morgan...the King of Maine Vanity. Morgan spends a great deal of his time traveling all over the state taking pictures of a varied assortment of wild and wacky plates. In Maine, a person can put ANYTHING on their license plate, as long as they can do it in seven characters or less. I have given a letter grade to each of this week's new crop of vanity plates. I judge on creativity, "Maine-ness," overall general interest and the "would I have a beer with this motorist" test.
Something a little different this week in our weekly installment of "Best of Maine Vanity Plates." We've decided this week to pair up a vanity plate with a great classic rock song. All these plates come from the amazing Vanity of Maine Instagram page. If you're new to the concept, Maine motorists are allowed to put ANYTHING they want on their vanity plate, as long as it's 7 characters or less.

In Maine, a person can put ANYTHING on their license plate, as long as they can do it in seven characters or less. And the results and creativity are astounding.
