hey im thinking of getting some custom plates for my 1997 EL fairmont ghia, and just wanted to see if anyone had any good ideas for plates?

the best available ones i culd think of were : GH1AEL and EGHIA-6
i originally wanted ELGHIA, but that was taken as were all the alternate ones (eg. ELGH1A)

its different for each state, the vic site is pretty good (http://www.vplates.com.au), you can check availability, price and order them pretty easily, i think the cost in vic isnt as bad as some other states...

EF_96_XR, ELGHIA might be available in nsw but not vic...

yeah you can check on the vic roads website, i should have mentioned im in victoria, and the site to check is http://www.vplates.com.au/index.php?page=plate-styles . its pretty handy that site, ive checked 97ghia and ghia97 they are both taken, running out of ideas. GH1AEL isnt as good as ELGHIA obviously but at the moment its my best bet, any other ideas guys? thanks for the replies
