Physicist's license plates

Jamie Santucci

I have Illinois license plate PHYSICS on my 2005 Toyota Camry. I believe that it cannot get more physics than that! The story is simple, unlike Tom Nash’s.... I work at Fermilab and I used to have a Toyota pickup truck with 900 GEV plates (the TeV ring energy at that time). When I traded my truck in for a Camry, I had to get new plates because Illinois does not allow truck plates on cars. I applied for PHYSICS as my first choice and, much to my surprise, I got it.

Even physicists have fun with personalized license plates.

Wow what a lucky grab with that license plate! Hopefully nobody who wants it will get physical over it!
