Vanity Plates

A four-school plate

OSU DC BU - our best guess is Ohio State Unviversity - Defiance College (do you have a better idea?) and Bluffton University. Toss in Shawnee and you have a four school plate. Tough to top this. The Icon spotted this plate in the CNB parking lot on Main Street.


Kickin' mud!

Could this be "Kicking (or "kickin') mud"? Looks like it to us. The Icon spotted this plate in the high school parking lot.


Does Brenda drive this vehicle?

We are going through our mental list of "Brendas" on this license plate. Or is there something we don't know?


A plate with style

Some license plates are ordinary. Other have style. This plate spotted earlier this month in Bluffton has "STYLYN."


Go cowboys!

We've added one more state to our collection. The Icon spotted this Wyoming truck on Main Street earlier this week.


State the state

The Icon spotted this plate downtown Bluffton recently. Can you identify the state?


Reverend doctor

This one belongs to Rev. Dr. Matthew Zuehlke, pastor of Bluffton Presbyterian Church.


Peterson from Arkansas

Meet the Petersons from Arkansas. The Icon snapped this photo in the Mennonite Memorial Home parking lot.


Amateur radio

The Icon spotted this amateur radio operator's special plate on Main Street.


When ZT meant Pandora

For a moment we thought it was 1960. The Icon spotted this 76 ZT plate in downtown Bluffton. In a previous Ohio license plate system, ZT plates were available only in Pandora. Someone kept number 76 for a very long time.
