22 Vanity Plates That Will Make You Shake Your Head

Statistically, vanity license plates are unique. And someone paid extra money to put that short message on their vehicle. The rest of us stop what we're doing, point them out to our friends, and we all ask why? Human beings are forever fascinated by vanity plates. We love them. Either for the witty creativity that might be involved (think "Back To The Future" and "OUTATIME") or just the sheer pretension we assume the car's owner is swimming in (like the Abu Dhabi man who paid $14 million for "1.")

And though the jokes, trends and cultural references may change, our fascination with vanity plates and the people who have them will always exist. The plates below confirm that people with vanity plates are ... well, exactly like you think they are. Never change, vanity plate people. Never change.
