Who has them and what are they? I just got my Texas State Rifle Association specialty plates today for my 72 F-250 4x4. They look good and carry a message, too. The number is......

I JUST HAD A THOUGHT!!!! May be we better not post our tag numbers for Security reasons. Keep that in mind. Oh well, it was a good idea at the time.

Anyway, who paid the big bucks for vanity plates?

It is harder to have cool plates in Texas because you only get 6 characters. When I lived in New Mexico the plate on my 1970 Cougar Eliminator was ELIMN8R. The plate on my 1968 California Special Mustang was CALI4NA. Now that I live in Texas I just put regular plates on them because I can't get what I want. :-X12

I can't believe some of the plates I've seen. One that was on I20 with me when I was going to my grandmother's funeral said "HAR D4U" I didn't think they'd put that on plates. Bet some inmate had fun with that one.


Thanx!

[updated:LAST EDITED ON 15-Dec-02 AT 08:20 PM (EST)]I found brand new 1967 Texas Truck plates on the internet, had them certified by TXDOT and was given a Classic Truck registration. Costs the same as having vanity plates... and yes, you still have to get the truck inspected, but the windshield registration is soooo much cooler!

For what it's worth, I don't think posting our LP's on FTE is any more dangerous than driving around town... the end result is the same, if people want to know who you are they'll find a way to figure it out.

I put some '66 plates on my '66 Stang along with the classic car registration too. I'll get a picture when it's light for ya.

Your plates are in great shape! The ones I got are in pretty good shape too, they're white on black.

Texas alternated the plate colors back in the 60's... even number years were black with white numbers, odd number years black on white... I wish it was opposite, I'd love to have the black plates with white numbers.
