Nice that they show both upstate and downstate. They used to just show the Statue of Liberty, which really wasn't fair. New York is a very big state and not just NYC.

My vote is for Michigan. They finally ditched their old blue ones from 1983 in favor of equally boring blue and white ones.

Favorite would have to be between the 2009 Texas and the 2009 Wyoming. Both of which are boring in comparison to many Mexican plates.

Although I don't think SC's is the worst I definitely agree about the Middle-East comment.

Imo Wisconsin's is the worst...doesn't exactly make you want to visit

Too busy with an awful fake script font for ''The Lone Star State"
Yeah. I HATE those. And what's worse is now I have them. The old plates looked like plates. These just look like some painting....

WI plates suck, and they never change them, it has been the same design for over 20 years.
MS new plates with the lighthouse are cool looking, as well as Alabama's new plate.

NY plates have always bothered me. With all the graphic designers in the State, the last two designs have been pretty bad. I guess thats what happens when final design decisions are made by a committee of untrained bureaucrats and their secretaries.

If it were up to me, the perfect NY plate would have the "I (HEART) NY" logo centered on a white plate with with black alphanumerics.

That's a good idea. I'd like the Statue of liberty on it again, but also add something from upstate, like mountains.

LOL--Pennsylvania and W. Virginia does that too. I'm sure when people are driving and they see PA and WV plates, they will log onto the web site.

But I wish PA and WV had a county system on their tags. I like to know which part of the state people are from. I noticed in OH, they have county codes (numbers), Georgia, Kentucky, and Tennessee list their counties on their tags, I believe Alabama has a numbers like Ohio....

Colorado's "dirty snow" is my least favorite. BTW, CO has been using this same general design for 40+ years...
