Vanity Plates

Vanity plates seem to be quite common here in Virginia and, while at Wal-Mart this morning, I saw one on an RX-7 that amused me. It read "INITAL D". For those of you who follow anime, you may recognize an abbreviation of the show title Initial D. A show about racing cars through the mountains of Japan in rather reckless manners. I wonder if the plate just denotes a fan or if the driver is trying to be self-descriptive? At any rate, that could be one more thing for wary motorcyclists to keep an eye out for to clue them in on driver antics.
