Virginia has about 100 different designs you can choose for your license plate. Just wondering which ones you guys like.

I think my favorite is the one with the crab.



But it's too pricey, IMO (costs an extra $35/year--I know that's not much but it's more than I feel like paying for a license plate). So we use the cardinal plate, instead

Which ones do you like?

Is that the one with the wooden ship on it? That's what we have.

The one with the cardinal may be the standard plate, but you know what, it's really a lovely plate. The light blue background looks great on a lot of cars, and the bird/dogwood design is classy. The Mountains to Sea one also looks great, IMO.

I have the standard plate w/a Steeler plate holder

Edit to say: it's the regular plate, not designs.

I personally don't care for the crab one, that makes me think of MD, I'd get a special one (Animals probably) but think they are charge too much for them.

I have the Cardinal, too! It's very pretty. When I lived in Maryland I had the "Save The Bay" Plate, with the heron on it. Not as many choices over there.
