  "Personalized Pirate License Plates"

Piratizing Our Land-Going Vessels

The rear of one of the No Quarter Given land-going vessels

Well, we pirates can't spend all our time on the sea.  When we must travel upon land, many of us have found ways to declare our piratical affinity.  See below for some splendid examples.

[Contact us if you wish to submit photos of your vehicle for display here]

 

Morgana, Queen of Skulls

[Morgana was the first person to send in her license plate when we sent out the request]

"Well, lass....I got my NQG issue yesterday and saw the tidbit about the license plates!!!  

"I have had mine since I bought my Expedition in 2000. I figured I got a brand new vehicle and I am going to get my "JLLY RGR" on there somehow!!!

"And as for the license plate frame "I BRAKE FOR PIRATES"; that was purchased not too long ago. A girlfriend of mine wanted to get my son a license plate frame for his motorcycle that said "I BRAKE FOR SPIDERS"; as my son loves spiders....so I thought "Hmmmmmmmmmm - I oughta get one that says "i BRAKE FOR PIRATES!!" Sooooooooooo TA DA!!!!!! Did it!! And I love it!!! You can see my trailer hitch cover also!!!!!! And the rest is history!!!!!!!"

 

From PyrateDan

"Me plate ought to be added to the wall of shame. In fact, me whole Xterra has a piratical theme to it."

PIRATESS BIJOUX

We marched with the Buccaneers of Tortuga in the Swallows Day Parade on March 21, 2009.  Piratess Bijoux had parked her car at the end of the parade route filled with drinks for a tired crew o' pirates. We knew which car to go to.

 

RAGING JACK BRASH

"Hey there Jamaica:  You said to send a pic of piratey license plates, so here ya go matey."

This one is on my Vino 125 Scooter.

LANCE FROM PENNSYLVANIA

First message from Lance: This is the plate on my 2009 Buell Firebolt & my helmet. "Yes I am a pirate, 200 years too late..."

2nd message from Lance:  Back in October I submitted a couple of pictures of my PYRAT license plate that's on my 2009 Buell Firebolt. I recently received a second personalized plate for my 2009 Buell Lightning...AR M8Y.

 

SILVERBEARD

Here be the artist's rendering of me carriage and proof that contrary to popular belief Silverbeard indeed has a Soul... it may be a Kia Soul but it be a soul none the less!!!!! An interesting side note the interior of the carriage be black and red- fine pyrate colours that happen to perfectly match Scarlett's garb.

Silverbeard

 

ISRAEL BLACKTHORNE AND LONG TOM SILVER

"My brother Tom (aka Long Tom Silver - with the shorter hair) has the van with the PYRAT plate. I (the better looking tar with the long hair) has the Freestyle with the PYRATE plate.  We were in our finery for a fundraiser photo op and took advantage of the sunny day for the pictures.
   " Luck Mate! Israel Blackthorne"

   

 

MORRIGAN QUICKSILVER

 '73 Cougar convertable BLKBRD 1 
'01 Chevy truck BLKBRD 2 
'01 Town Car BLKBEARD 
'03 DeeGee's Town Car MSBLKBRD
Fair winds, Ben Blackbeard Cherry"

This photo of Blackbeard (aka Ben Cherry) driving away in his special Lincoln Mark VII was taken by us in 1998.  This plate must have been transferred to his newer car.

JezzieRose's Mini Cooper

"A few years ago I had an opportunity to buy my first new car, I knew right away what I wanted, (after all I have wanted one for 40 years). I also knew right away what my license plate was going to be.
 
"Here is picture of my Mini Pirate, complete with the license plate "MNI PR8", a Pirate's of the Caribbean antenna ball and a sticker of Pirates Winnie the Pooh and Piglet (a sticker I designed myself).  My Mini Pirate's home port is Pirate's Cove, in Corona (known to everyone in our area as "The Pirate House").
 
"After I got my Mini Pirate my Pirate son decided to get the license plate "2X PIR8" to go on his very big black truck."


 
"I am also sending you a picture of my Mini Pirate at the shore.  My Mini Pirate is always wishing she could be at sea.  After she was built in England (by special order), she was shipped overseas to California, that was when she found her love for the sea and we never miss an opportunity to take her to the shore or even a ferry ride once in awhile.
 
"Hope you enjoy the pics.  Fair Winds, JezzieRose"

CAPTAIN MERCY MORGAN-JONES

In response to your request for personalized or piratical plates, here is a shot of the good ship "Manticore".  La, the compliments she earns me!  Children and adults gather 'round her to view her plates, palm tree and skull license frame, the decals adorning her dashboard, the mini ship's wheel ion the rear compartment, the carved bone rosary (skulls!) on her rear view and of course, the pirate skeleton in the passenger seat.  Me only regret is not having a working cannon on board with which to deal with the daft drivers about!
Fair sailing!
Captain Mercy Morgan-Jones

 

 

From Shayna Vest

I have another one too, the YARRRR car (Toyota)

SOME REPORTS OF LICENSE PLATES SUBMITTED WITHOUT PHOTOS

Late FOM had VA plate PI RET.  But he was a retired private dick (in the non-porno sense). He was often asked about his plate.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Me horseless carriage is licensed by the colony of Rogues Island with the plate 'Pyrate' held in place by a chrome skull & bones frame. We derive great pleasure heading to an event in full costume from fellow travelers following behind then passing and giving a close look after noticing the plate and seeing the vehicle driven by pirates. The car is an Eclipse Spyder convertible so passersby can really get a good look at us!!!!!!!

Silverbeard

[EDITOR'S NOTE: Silverbeard has since traded his land vessel in for a newer model - see photo nearer the top of this page. The same license plate is on the new vessel.]

JOE PYRAT AND THE GHOST OF JACK RACKHAM

Here's a picture of my Mustang with it's pirate license and the ghost of Jack Rackham.

MORE PLATES FOUND ON THE CYBER SEAS

The East Carolina University students are known as the Pirates.  So lots of piratical license plates found amongst their student body and alumni in the Carolinas and Virginia.  I imagine there are some Tampa Bay football fans with Florida buccaneer plates, and Pittsburgh baseball fans with pirate plates too.
