Quebec's and Minnesota's license plates are also interesting.
I find ours quite boring. They haven't changed since the late 70s.

God is not a religion. If the plate said something like "In Jesus We Trust" or "In Allah We Trust", I doubt the state would be able to get away with issuing plates like that.

I find Colorado's base plate boring. I've been living with essentially the same design and colors for 50 years! Although we do have about 600 different "special" and "vanity" plates. Heck, you can get a special plate if you collect marbles! (not really, but close).

Yeah, I'm amazed Colorado seems to have the oldest looking plates in the country, despite being progressive in many other ways. Could be a case of "classicites"...so be it. Though typically, States in the west tend to stick with their same design for decades. Look at California, Oregon, Washington, and to some extent Idaho and Nevada.

Here is a good site: 15q.net

Florida has many options....the standard plate if wite green and orange with a picture of an orange blossom growing on a tree, but there is one I really like.... It' s a plate with the sun rising over the water and a dude with a surf board looking into the water and it says "Florida" and then underneathe it says "Endless Summer"

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.
The Texas plate is hideous looking!

I don't have a problem with the latest Texas plain plate. If you look at the history of Texas plates, there was a major period of black numerals on white from the mid-50's to the mid-90's, with a few colorful exceptions in between. This is probably more than a "retro" thing here in the 10's. It is a "back to basics" look.

It's not the coolest I'm sure, but Indiana's new plate starting in 2017

Is much improved over the current plate.

I'd like to see GA put the "....on my mind" back on the tags. Like this.

I really don't like this one but I'm okay with this on (I'd like to see them get rid of the "In god we trust" and put the "...on my mind" back).
