They didnt just start not too long ago. I think they have been selling them for a while now. Only thing is they only do it once or twice a year. I believe mainly around spring and Fall.. i guess its a big revenue period

Sorry...I was thinking March of this year, but it was March of 2011. The first 7 digit plates were offered on March 7, at 7am for 7 days. I jumped on that first morning and grabbed mine.

I got my custom plates directly from the state of Texas in 2009 before MyPlates.com started up. I have ROCKIT and only pay $40 a year for them. We'll actually just one. I still don't use the front plate.

I just moved up here to Seattle a little over a month ago. A couple of weekends ago I drove up to Vancouver, BC with my Texas plates still on.

Driving into Canada the Canadian boarder agent asked 2 things about my plates.
1) Are they real ?
He had not seen any Texas plates like them before.
2) What do the letters stand for, eh ?
I explained it was a SS or V8 Convertible

No the plate I commented on up above is the new retro version of a plate used years ago.
Actually I think Shuffler has a plate that was used back in the 80's or 90's. Kind of cool they are bringing back old plates.

Hmmm will they bring back the black plate with gold letters from the 50's lol

Definitely a cost of living thing. California is gorgeous, but not exactly inexpensive. Texas is much cheaper, and we have no state income tax. I love it here.

I have T plates and bought them on myplates.com. I do not see many around this area and do get questions to whether they are real or not. The T is part of your plate number but because it is a new series you can likely get exactly what you want. The plate reads T is for Texas but in my case T is for Tallulah. Oh they were $495 for 10 years and are transferable on any other like vehicle car or truck not a motorcycle or trailer.I bought them before the car so was able to get them and transfer for $2 at the dealer. There is a photo in my garage.

The armadillo is known as 'possum on the half-shell'...

1.A possum is a flat animal that sleeps in the middle of the road.
2. There are 5,000 types of snakes and 4,998 of them live in Texas.
3. There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 of them live in Texas, plus a couple no one's seen before.
4. If it grows, it'll stick ya. If it crawls, it'll bite cha.

7. 'Jaw-P?' means 'Did ya'll go to the bathroom?'
8. People actually grow and eat okra.
9. 'Fixinto' is one word.
10. There is no such thing as 'lunch'. There is only dinner and then there is supper.
11. Iced tea is appropriate for all meals and you start drinking it when you're two. We do like a little tea with our sugar.
12. Backwards and forwards means 'I know everything about you.'
13. The word 'jeet' is actually a phrase meaning 'Did you eat?'.
14. You don't have to wear a watch, because it doesn't matter what time it is, you work until you're done or it's too dark to see.

21. You carry jumper cables in your truck --- for your OWN truck.
22. You only own five spices: salt, pepper, Texas Pete, Tabasco and Ketchup.
23. The local papers cover national and international news on one page, but require 6 pages for local gossip and high school football
24. You think that the first day of deer season is a national holiday.
25. You find 100 degrees Fahrenheit 'a bit warm'.
26. You know all four seasons: Almost summer, summer, still summer, and Christmas.
27. Going to Wal-Mart is a favorite past time known as 'goin' Wal-Martin' or 'off to Wally World'.
28. You describe the first cool snap (below 70 degrees) as good chicken stew weather.
29. Fried catfish is the other white meat.
30. We don't need no dang driver's ed. If our mama says we can drive, we can drive, dag-nabbit.

Radio station had a contest a while back, asked "....what's the most popular bumper sticker?"



First place was a tie:
  • "Welcome to Austin now go home"
  • "If you love New York then get your ass out of Texas"
Last but not least the official Texas motto....

"Don't Mess with Texas."

We also tolerate yankees even though they are alot like hemorrhoids.....

They come down and go back up, they are ok.

They come down and stay down, they are a pain in the arse.
