After reviewing nearly 130 submissions to the Observer’s ILUVMYTAG license plate contest, the judges named Dianna Hildenbrand of Charlotte the winner. Here’s her explanation of HISSYFIT: “I have a Honda Fit and what better plate than HissyFit, especially living in the South. Also, my mother always told me not to have a HissyFit fit.”

She wins a $25 gift card. Our thanks to everyone who entered. Click through the others for some funny, even sweet, stories. And who knew a car tag could be poignant? We saw several.
