    Are you talking about the license plate or the serial number?

    I choose what I want on my license plates so 666 would not be on it and the serial number would not bother me, no matter what the number.

    My Pastor lives in a town where the zip code is 62666. I don't think he has turned himself over to the anti-Christ... [​IMG]

    LOL, it has nothing to do with the beast, the bible says thats a number on your head or hand, your car isn't listed in the bible.

    Georgia has a list of words, codes and numbers that aren't used for license plates. 666 is not allowed. KKK is not allowed. Other things that could sound vulgar is not allowed. If you spot a plate that has vulgar conotations, report it and it'll be recalled. I saw one that was R-Gaz- and I'll leave off the last letter. I reported it and got a note back thanking me saying it had slipped through and had been recalled.

    Talk about being fortunate in getting an easy number to remember - when I recently licensed our truck we use to pull our travel trailer- the next plate on the stack was 602 206. I think I can remember this one.

    Hardsheller: I used to have the license plate "NBH 319".

    I could remember it really easy because I work on 'the corner' from 3:00 to 3:30.

    How did I remember it?

    I actually know of a Baptist pastor in Minnesota who received a plate with the number "666" on it. In Minnesota, the plate format is three letters followed by three numbers, so his plate read something like this (not the actual three letters): "ABC 666".

    He drove around in his Ford F-150 with that plate for several years, basically thinking what others have expressed above: that the Bible doesn't mention pick-up trucks.

    When I worked at a social service agency a while back, one of our funding streams was referred to as "Act 148," meaning the piece of state legislation that allowed for the greater part of services being paid. One of our employees got a new car, and the stock plate they gave her at the dealership said "CUT 148." She was very apologetic.

    Here in Tennessee we don't get new license plates when we change vehicles. In fact, we hardly ever get new licence plates. LOL We just transfer the tag from the old vehicle to the new vehicle. Once a year we change the year sticker and city sticker (if we live in the Jackson). Other cities have wheel tax stickers.

    In Georgia, they didn't change our d/l pictures for a long time. I haven't changed THAT much but I do NOT look the same as I did 10 years ago. [​IMG]

    Twenty-five years ago the local church had a license plate give to them upon the purchase of a small bus that read, "666 YEA" or something of the sort. They kept it. :eek:

    We get new driver's licenses (and pictures) every 4 years, I guess becasue people do change how they look as they grow older.
    I don't really know how they decide who gets a new plate and when. There are years I license my car and get a plate and years I just get the sticker. the plate and number go with the car no matter who the owner is, a new car means a new plate number, whatever was on it already not a new one.
    I'm not sure what the phobia against numbers is. I think by the time the numbers are given out we would know who the beast is. And we aren't associating wiht the beast if 666 is on our cars or social security numbers or our apparment door or anything.

    I was a member of a particular SBC church for nearly 5 years that church used the 1975 Hymnals because the last Hymn "Holy is the Lord" is number 666. :eek: :rolleyes:

    The responsive readings start with number 667.

    I wouldn't have a problem with 666 on my licence plate, but because some one else might have a problem with it I would excahnge the plate. You know, it's the whole "Not causeing your brother to stumble thing." I only have a problem because having 666 on my licence plate could offend a weaker brother or sister, or give amunition to the skeptics and hypocrytes.

    I think the SBC should change their hymnals for the same reason. One nice lady in that church was terrified of the '91 Hymnal's. I believe her fear was unfounded but it was a real fear for her.

    My new church has the '91 Hymnals but hardly any one uses them since we got the video projector a few yaers ago!
