Happy Saturday! Your fearless blogger is back with another installment of "Great Plates" (awesome vanity plates on awesome cars). Take a look:

The vanity plates on this Red Tesla electric exotic car remind everyone how "green" it is. (Reader submitted photo.)

This black and yellow Corvette Z06 with bold vanity plates screams, "Look at me!". Corvette drivers are known for having outlandish vanity plates (just ask radio and TV personality Jim Rome), so for one to claim his car is "THE Z06" means both the car and driver really have to bring it.

Very attention getting paint scheme. It's like a hornet on wheels. I approve.

"THEZ06" is fantastic and hip. This dude is rockin out a sweet ride. My thought is this: if you want a car's paint job to stand out and be eye-catching, then why go with standard colors like black and yellow? I just envision a color thats more hip and ostentatious like purple. Your thoughts....

@ Doug: I agree with your comments regarding the fantastic and hip nature of "THE Z06".

As for the color selection I have some thoughts. Going with a 2 tone color scheme really enhances the "look at me" factor. So, even though black and yellow are standard colors, combining them makes the paint job fairly unique and causes the Corvette to stand out.

I like your suggestion about opting for an ostentatious color in order to be even more eye-catching. There is a pink Lamborghini Gallardo that gets LOTS of attention simply because it is painted in such a unique color. I have found that exotic cars from the Middle East often have extreme customization in both color and accessories such as wild body kits. So, please know that people in the exotic car culture are out there doing wild customizations to their cars.

@ doug: A purple Vette would be lame. Unless it was done in dark purple color change paint. That could maybe look ok.
