back in the late 70's, Minnesota inmates incorporated illusion art into their license plate production allowing one to see a ghostly sailing ship soar into the stars if you stared at the plate in front of you long enough...that was cool for awhile.

I liked the Colorado plates we had best. I am back in Texas now and I think the standard issue plates are very cheap looking, IMO.

When we lived in Florida, my husband hated the ".com" on there, which he thought looked like an advertisement, so he got a cool looking "Save Our Seas" one with a shark on it. I also recall that FL gave you the option of using the verbiage "Sunshine State" or your County.

Florida has over 100 different specialty plates in addition to the standard ones. That is not counting the antique car, dealer, handicap or others of that category.

Favorite: Colorado (the green back, white text), New Mexico, Montana, Vermont, and Oregon
Least Favorite: California, Louisiana, Florida, Illinois, New York

I can't stand that red cursive on the California and Louisiana plates for some reason. Illinois are just so bland and have a bad image. Florida is just plain obnoxious and cheap looking. And New Yorks are just...odd with the color scheme.

I'm looking forward to the day that my car has Maine plates.

A lot of the Indians in Downeast Maine have this plate.

I would have to say that the worst plates were the ones that said "Wander Indiana"
