I'm going to get 2 of them, one for the Jeep and one for my truck. They look nice and the price is right.

Gonna get a set for the car. I am going to wait until renewal time. Well, I am going to call them like a month before so that I know that they will be in on time. You know how the DMV can be. :wink:

NY DMV has several service related plates. On an earlier job, I would simetimes work late and meet a kind elderly gent who clearned up our worksite after hours. I noticed one eve that he had purple heart NY plates, and asked him about it. I had assumed from his apparent age that he was a Vietnam vet or possibly Korea. He explained that he was wonded by enemy fire in Normandy as a replacement member of an infantry unit not long after D-Day and spent the rest of the war recovering in England.

A lady who was senior to me complained one day about the quality of the floor buffing after a maintence crew remodeled the place and complained about this guy. She is very proud that her new boyfriend is a Vietnam Vet, and explained that buffing would not correct the damage done to the floors by the maintence crew, and that this guy took bullets fighting Hitler's army and she might consider giving the guy a little consideration.

For anyone interested, this is what the Texas plate looks like. Not as snazzy as the NY plate, but no extra fees to get one of these.

You can also customize the plate for an additional yearly fee. Thanks for posting that site for the plate frames Dagger! I'll be ordering a set soon myself!

Get this.. This is Funny.. I went to the Local DMV to get Plates for the Blazer that I was putting on the road.. I figured it would be a good time to do that. WRONG.. The Vehicle has to be registered in your name First. Then they send you the plates.. I told lady that I did not mind waiting to get them in the mail.. Nope. Can't do that.. They do not know what the Plate Number is going to be in advance, so they can't do the registration..

So when I need to re register it I will try to get them then..

I'm just north of Dallas here. Used to live in SA myself, what part of SA are you in? I was near Blanco and West Ave on the north side.

Well, my parents are on the northeast side in Schertz, I currently live on the northeastish side, as well, near Windcrest, and I work south of town in Floresville. Dallas? I'm sorry to hear that. :wink: We just got back from a trip to Fort Worth.

I said it wearing my 10 gal. hat, S**t kickers, and Bolo. Remember the episode of Sponge Bob, where Patrick and Sponge bob were making fun of Texas, that is one of my favorites. I used to stay at the TA truck stop in Dallas, and I believe there is a Bowling alley near the truck stop also. I like Texas, just giving you a hard time.
