That was the oldest design that I recall, but I think that this is the old design that myself and the others I referring to:

Some states have come out with new plates within the last few months.

I think Indiana's new design is nice, but the plate itself seems cheap and flimsy. I see them moving around on cars as if they were printed on paper!

South Carolina's new design is also very nice. I also like the old one with orange and blue hues.

Ohio's plate still is terrible with them cramming every possible phrase onto the plate in the most hard to read font and color. UGLY.

Illinois's new plate design is A+...easy to read and looks good on most vehicles.

Kentucky is set to design a new plate for 2019, so we shall see what they come up with.

I know I'm in the minority, but as a native Coloradan, I'm sick to death of 60 years of green & white plates. I'd like to see a graphic of Pikes Peak or the Maroon Belles, especially with the technology available today. Although, we must have more "specialty" plates available than just about anywhere.

Is there a thread for "coolest state flags"? A quick search didn't detect one.

My all-time favorite American license plate design is the now-retired South Carolina plate with a single palmetto tree and blueish background that read, "Smiling Faces, Beautiful Places."
