California license plate: SAABARU

I looked a few weeks ago on the Calif. DMV website to see if the plate 'SAABARU' is taken, and someone already has it.   Anyone on this board?

Unfortunately no, just 6 sad  The form you send in actually has 8 spots per entry though, then right above it it says "limit six or less alpha or numeric characters".  Odd smile

Re: California license plate: SAABARU

When I first saw the Saabaru at the L.A. Auto show I seriously thought about getting that one (it was available at the time, lol there were no saabarus out yet) but I was driving a Focus at the time and that would have been just wierd.

Alas, I crashed my Focus in January 05, and the Saabaru was still not out, so I ended up in a Mazda3 so if I had gotten "SAABARU" it would have been a waste smile

There is quite a few people that had their 92x's last year... what do you meant 'still was not out, so I ended up in a Mazda3?"

Re: California license plate: SAABARU

In January 2004 there weren't ANY dealers in SoCal that had any 9-2Xs in yet.  I called like 6 of them.

I was thinking about buying a beater to drive till I could get my hands on a Saabaru but when I test drove the WRX Wagon the legroom was a little shy (I kept rubbing my shin on the dash when I worked the clutch) so I figured there was a good chance the Saabaru would be the same deal (though not 100% for sure since the seats are different).

The Mazda3 was my 3rd choice, it's a good car, just not a Saabaru.
