Not exactly coding-related, but in the middle of the dot-com boom I saw a Porsche 911 with the license plate:

My actual license place is:

JVM (and then some numbers)

It was totally by chance.

CAFEBABE and DEADBEEF (both hex) -- deadbeef might not go over for the DMV, though, if they're sooper picky. They might think it's a euphemism or a threat or something.

How about "NEEDJOB"?

and at the same company I used to see a Mercedes with: EBCDIC

The best one I think was don Box's IUNKNWN license plate.
(In case anyone is wondering he was THE COM evagalist for Microsoft) - I always thought it was pretty cool

There is a pretty good link on plates at http://blogs.msdn.com/kclemson/archive/2004/04/30/123929.aspx

At Berkeley there was a dude who parked on campus with a VMUNIX license plate.

Also, I don't know what's on it's plates, but there is a Plymouth PT Cruser that I've seen driving around that's got a \. logo on the side.

I'd love to have XYZZY

Get your hands on an 8 or so character domain name, any random sequence will do, and then get that license plate. Get "www." and ".com" bumper stickers to the left & right of it.

Even better if you can do it with the - in the right spot. Then again, just register (your licenseplate).com anyway, it's probably available.

"Don't get a personalised number plate in your name; it is much cheaper to change your name to that of your current number plate!"

Richard Feynman apparently had QUANTUM as his plate. Not really IT-related, but still pretty cool.

A BMW owned by a friend of mine in Arizona:

ASCII 24

The 24 is hexadecimal... you figure it out :)

I occasionally see a new Porsche 911 turbo in Brisbane (Australia) - which isn't exactly silicon valley or redmond in terms of programmer population - with the number place MSFT.
