Colorado's standard plate is fine. The state has alternated with green and white mountains/lettering for decades. It is one of the most recognizable plates.

Not really. Washington, California, Massachusetts, and Illinois plates are virtually indistinguishable from a far enough distance.

They are revenue-makers. People pay extra for the privilege. I say, let idiots pay the taxes so I don't have to. In fact, make standard issue plates embarrassingly boring, to inspire people to ante up the extra money for catchier plates. Some states, you can get a special plate promoting a college in a different state.

One that certainly didn't was New York. I liked the white/blue ones, the new yellow ones look terrible.

Connecticut does but they haven't changed them in quite some time. It's pretty much the same as NJ's but it has a blue color scheme.

I like the layout of the state background. But the letters or numbers overlapping somewhat ruined it.




The best plate I ever seen.

That new one is what it was 40 or 50 years ago. They went retro.

You do realize that Oregon has several different plates, right?

Most states have various options, but there is still the most common, general, popular one.
