I thought so too, at first. But I've really come to appreciate it. It's simple, it's uncluttered, it's very easy to read, and it has all the information you need: the letters and numbers, the name of the state, the shape of the state (in-between the letters and numbers), the nickname of the state, and a symbol of the state. And that's it.

I don't like that it's flat, instead of embossed. But other than that, I think it's a winner.

I agree, I like Texas's new one. It's simple, just what a license plate needs to be. The old one was tacky, IMHO.

NJ's typical plate is so simple, so I guess I'm used to seeing ones like Texas's new one and CT's, which another rooster pointed out is basically ours except blue, not yellow. So seeing ones like Texas's old plate, or Ohio's plate I see most commonly (the one with the farm and city skyline motif), they just seem tacky to me, but it seems that many states actually employ that overdone, over-representative of the state look.

Lol girl, I just answered the question. It wasn't even that serious.

Minnesota should really true-up the number of lakes it really has so that we can stop with any johnny-come-lately state who has any false hopes or dillusions of grandeur.

also, some states (Colorado, Wyoming) have their plates in the shape of their state which is clever...other states should be ordered to do that as well.

I quite liked the white and blue one Texas with the little space shuttle.

I'm also going to add my vote for CA OR and WA needing updates. Those plate designs have been used for many years now. SC could use one also. I just don't think the Palm Tree in the middle of the plate is right for that state, makes me think of CA. MA and PA also could use update. The plate design NY has is I think a repeat of an older plate that state had. I think NY could use a more attractive plate.

While were on this subject of plates. A few weeks ago at a traffic light here in Lakeland, FL. I saw a Lexus with a FL plate that read. GODS GRL. Though I'm not surprised to see such a message in Central Florida. I was surprised to see it on a license plate. Of course one of the Fl plates we are issued here has the slogan. In God We Trust. So perhaps vanity plates can say what they want in Florida, other than derogatory words. Although I'm not completely sure I won't eventually see that.

New York's plate is my favorite. It really sticks out.
Also I am partial to the classics and am not a fan of plates with pictures on them.

Perhaps Colorado, or Minnesota?
Colorado's plate is perfect for that state. It's basic design has been around for 50 years and should stay for another 50.
