I like the turquoise. I wanna get an old Chevy pick-up to put it on.

That new turquoise plate is most excellent. As much as I love the old Zia plate, I would consider getting the turquoise plate too. I'd like to see them both stay.

p.s. Glad to see the balloon plate finally getting phased out...

Wink So what's the deal on the counties?

Well, we're finally legal in NM, moved everything these last week and loving it! But one question for you long-timers. We registered my old F150 pickup as it was due (holding off on the Honda for a while) and the plate we got shows Lincoln county on the top. But looking around, we didn't see many other plates that showed the county, most just generic New Mexico. Is that just a pickup thing, or is this something new?

Love living here now, went out the first night after our first decent monsoon, and saw a full rainbow. Many more spectacular night skies to come, and so glad to be here!

I love both the yellow and turquoise. I have the balloon ones and I hate them. I am stuck with that particular plate??? I guess I could go to the DMV and ask.

Don't quote me - but I think you can request a new plate at the time you pay your annual renewal fee. But I also seem to recall you have to pay something for the new plate, in addition to the renewal fee to cover the cost of re-registering.

There is probably no reason not to issue a new plate anytime a customer requests it - if they are going to charge for the change anyway. People who loose or have the plate stolen have to have a way to purchase a new one too.

I do recall seeing Lincoln County on plates before, but can't recall which design plate that was - seems as though it was not the older yellow design.

Were you offered different options for plates when you registered you truck? And did you get the older yellow design or one of the newer ones?

I haven't seen a New Mexico plate with the county sticker for years. If it is a new plate, I hope they are bringing the county stickers back.

My pick-up still has the (Zia plate) Lincoln county designation on it. The state quit doing that quite some time ago. Mid to late 90's if I remember correctly.

That is what I thought, too, that the only plates with the county stickers were old ones, but hogfarmer indicated he got the county-stickered plate on a new registration. Was that correct?

I'd like to see the county designation on the plates, too.

I like the new turquoise plate, but don't want one if they don't say USA on them. I like that part.

I'll stick with my yellow zia plate if I can.
