Default Re: Naming my car

Over 30 years ago I was stopped at lights in a cheap old bomb when a group of people pulled up alongside and yelled out "hairy underarm!". I thought I'd had a grooming malfunction until they explained that they owned my car at one time and named it Hairy Underarm - number plate starting with HUA.

Since then I try to make words from my number plates as a memory aid until I remember it. With VZN it's not so easy ... the VZ brought to mind "vizier" as in "grand vizier", as seen in some Terry Pratchett books. So I think of the car as Vizier ... Not :)
