Re: pic: Got my plates.

No one on our team has custom plates, but we have a mentor who made bumpers (like robot bumpers) for his truck. I'll see if I can find a picture

Re: pic: Got my plates.

I've seen several FRC inspired vanity plates, both on road-going vehicles, and on-board FRC robots.

I've seen:

TEAM1114 (Ontario plate seen on the above photographed van)
TEAM2056 (Ontario plate, seen on the vehicle pulling 2056's trailer)
HOT 67 (old blue Michigan Plate, seen on board 67's 2008 (I think, maybe it was 2009) robot @ Kettering Kickoff)

IIRC I've seen a 781 ON vanity plate at an event, and several other MI/OH plates at Kettering Kickoff that I'm now forgetting.

The Hills from 1625 have painted bumpers on their 12 passenger van with 1625 written in the corners. I think one side is blue and the other is red. Its pretty cool.

I don't know of anyone having a 781 plate, but it may have been before or after my time on the team. We did have use of this van from sponsor Bruce Power for several years, until it was sold prior to the 2011 season:



Last year Bruce Power lent us a minivan and Bruce Safe Communities lent us a covered trailer that went to Waterloo and GTR with us. Everything went underneath the coach bus to Buckeye and Champs last year. I'm not sure what they did this year.

Re: pic: Got my plates.

Cool plates, inspired me to see if I could do something similar for my truck but apparently due to Virginia designations for non personalized plates it appears I can't do FRC XXXX. Any CD folks out there have a witty solution to show team pride that doesn't use 3 letters then 4 numbers?

What kind of configuration (XX-XXX? XXX-XXX? etc) does it need to be in? I'm sure someone could come up with something.

It can be in any configuration, 6 characters or 7 if one of them is a - or space.

If you want to try combinations for VA (and see availability) go to.

Re: pic: Got my plates.

7 characters and a space are allowed on most plates. FRC<space>2068 is not available as a customized plate as it is reserved as a "regular plate", but 2068<space>FRC is available.

Regular plates are XXX YYYY (where X is a letter and Y is a number)

Re: pic: Got my plates.

Figured I'd add to the plate party. I wish more people would do this because I would love to catch people's plates on the road!

Judging by the date of the photo I'm going to say, since January 2004... I have a newer car now, in case anyone is wondering, ha.
