What about the Pentagon and the field in Western Pennsylvania? The terrorist attack was there too.

That particular plate is inspired by the 9-11 attack.

Right. But any number of commemorative plates that could have drawn attention to a terrorist attack IN OKLAHOMA may have been a bit more fitting.

Here is the worst plate of them all....

the new Kansas plate....

GAG!

Horrible. That is the state seal in the background.

Drove up to the Royals game today, saw several of these in Johnson County and said thank god I get to wait another 8 months before I have to have that one. I may switch residency to MO earlier just to avoid the plate.

I thought that was the absurdness of it all. We don't see New York plates with an Okalhoma memorial.

It really looks fantastic on a car.

I'm not from there, and have actually never been there, but this is a great one:

Living here in Colorado, I HATED the look of these plates and vowed never to put one on my car. The current standard issue plate used since 2000 is better.

I do like the designer plate that is available and wished that was the standard issue plate.

Living on Ontario my whole life (and so near Quebec with a similar design) and thus being so used to plain white plates with blue text, I find that all these colourful plates just seem so, I dunno, alien and weird to me. But as plain as they are, I rather like Ontario's plates. Sometimes simplicity is the key.

The new BC license plates are nasty...when i first saw them i couldn't tell where the hell that plate was from till i took a closer look. Lame. Sure they are for the Olympics, but man are they ugly. I think it's a stupid idea as well...are we supposed to adopt these as our new plates for good? Or just till the Olympics then after that, new plates are back to the old design??

Please post your favorite licence plate design.

Here's mine...

I actually have one of these. Awesome plate.

One of my (biased) favorites:

Loved this one for some reason:

And finally, the plate that lets you know that you're following a terrible driver:

What was the reason for going away from these plates? If I recall they were only issued for a couple of years.

I didn't think they were that bad looking..
