At least the new one has Niagara Falls, Mount Marcy, and the Manhattan skyline- a good representation of NY State.
I heard the same thing from people who live upstate--that the Statue of liberty just represented the downstate area. The newer one is more fair to them. It's ok to me, but I miss seeing the Statue of liberty on the plate. They could have done that in the middle of the numbers/letters. I'm not complaining though, I like it for the most part.

My dad had to move out of state for a job. His new license plate says "New Yawk"--I love it

The new plates that Virginia is passing out are very boring. (old pid but that is what it looks like)

I like the standard Arizona plates like in post #3 of page 1, and SC is nice too (first post).

I absolutely HATE the Wisconsin plates:





^ Just gross. ^

And I have to see them every day here, since Duluth is just across the bridge from Superior, WI. Blah.

I was very proud to live in Michigan, the last remaining state that still had plates with the name of the state emboslsed and roller painted with the number. It was also the last state with a dark, non-reflectorized background. Two years ago, the secretary of state went on a power trip, decided to built a permanant monument to herself, and ordered that Michigans unique retro license plates had to me replaced with the same crap as everyboey else.--- a white reflector backrouind, with the name of the state screened in stylized font. (At least, there is no multicolored panorama on the new ones---yet) Here is the beautiful old blue Michigan plate, that looks like license plates are supposed to look. RIP 2007.
