Centennial License Plates

They've arrived. As of last week, you can demand the centennial license plate at the state's MVDs. The design was sold as "retro," because it's based on past plates. (Not to be all state-pridey, but I like it. What do you think?)

You know what's even better than that plate? Six babies in a blender (zing!). No, how about this amateur radio operator plate, available to "any New Mexico resident who holds an official commercial or amateur radio station license in good standing issued by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)." Rad.

Kitschier still? Take this horseless carriage plate ... please. "A 'horseless carriage' is a motor vehicle at least 35 years old, owned as a collector's item, and used solely for exhibition and educational purposes."

Then there's this patriot plate, and someone at MVD was being a real crackup when he or she wrote: "The Patriot registration plate is available to any motor vehicle owner who is a patriot. No proof of patriotism is required."

Damn. There's a lot I didn't know about license plates. Scope the many varieties here.
