Not NH, Vermont. The dealer is in NH though. Ive been writing down some ideas tho. JORTS is funny.Congrats on your new baby!!!
Just getting in on this thread but from your previous posts, you're based out of New Hampshire, right?
Well then this is direct from the NH DMV website so some of those plate ideas are a no-no. Plenty of them are fine ideas, my personal fav so far is the JORTS one.

well see below. Plan was to evaluate in the summer but was leaning on selling the C8 and keeping the Boxster. Deposit in April and delivery in Feb. Solid 10 Months.Wow, that seems quick, like back to the old days kind of quick. Maybe I missed it but what's happening with the Boxster? Keeping two sports cars? Selling it?
Welp degenerates and TFL, chime in here. I'm getting cold feet on paying up. Called up my credit union Thursday, everything looked good, they cut a check an hour after I called. All I have to do is fedex it to the dealer and the C8 is mine. I think I feel this way before and after every car purchase but this one even more so. Seems excessive in this environment. I work in tech and looking at the market, you can't help but feel bad for so many layoffs these days. Heck, I got the boot last summer even though I landed pretty fast with multiple offers. My company is super solid and I feel that my project is well funded for a while so I'm not exactly sweating myself but who knows. Wife works, no kids, investment properties are good. I just have this shameful feeling of buying some silly $86k car.
I think I tend to justify car spending by thinking I can dump it for minimal loss or profit. And this is no different. MacMulkin is price protecting me $2500 from todays MSRP because they locked me in last April when the deposit was placed. Because I went through with production, that $2k deposit is not refundable now. So all I owe MacMulkin is $81.5k on a $86.5k car who's MSRP will prob go up in a couple of months. The days of over MSRP flipping are gone but, if I'm into the car for $81.5k, waitlist for new production slots are still 9 months deep, maybe I can tool around for abit this summer and dump for $81k again which is under MSRP? I already have a cool ass car too. This decision was super easy last year when flipping for $10k over easy, all you had to do was wait. But now...
But then I think about all the fun I had last summer with my car friends, events, club meets and all. And I'm reminded that our time is short. This month, a husband of a family friend ended up in the hospital with all kinds of pain. Docs find pancreatic cancer and its pretty advanced. He's too weak for treatment now and he's in his 60s. Its a wrap really. I think of that and say "fudge these puritanical beliefs! YOLO all the cars!". Thats my overshare for the month. What does TCL say I do?
