They want $115 for "MBTREE." I'm thinking about it.

Anybody ever had them?

It's not just a one time expense, most states charge an additional annual premium to allow you the priveledge of having a customized license tag. In FL I think it's $25 per year.

I never had a personalized plate, but my old man has for years. Probably the biggest reason why I don't want one.
:what:

You could get a "IHATEDAD" plate!

I had "TREE MAN" for many years, then I let it go when I started leasing. Now I've got "TREE WRX" on the company pick-up. Its $17.00 extra per year.

I remember that, Brett. You still have the Toyota?

Heck, I might get 'SKWERL' or 'RJ SKWERL' on the bucket. It's up for renewal next month, I think I'll ask about that.

They didn't mention an annual fee, but I may have missed that.

I have personalized plates with my kids nicknames on it.

I have a buddy that has a restored 1969 Camaro. Turns out that you can buy restored plates from 1969 and get them registered to your car. So now his 1969 car has 1969 plates.

We always called them vanity plates here....

can you get them on commercial vehicles (1 ton or better plates).

I think RBORIST would be cool!

Washington has a one time fee of $65 bucks, and then they tack on something like $30 more dollars onto your tabs each year.

I had one years ago...

Virginia has more vanity plates than any other state-probably because they only charge $10 for the fun. I almost did it but then I thought that it was kind of a silly way to spend $80(Colorado's fee then) and I found out that there was a wait of several months and decided to not be so vain but continue being impatient.

I had to renew my bucket truck plate anyway, so I asked about a vanity plate. It was only $15 for the plate plus $12 per year. So for $27 extra I went for it.
:D

I've got "STLHD" (Steelhead...you know, the fish.) Out here it makes sense and people know what it means. AK charges a one-time $30 fee, and your plates are prorated for the year and make of vehicle you own.

Before this, I had "FLYTYR" and "TYFLYS" AK only gives you six characters, so it kinda ties your hands with what you can do.

Hawaii is a one time fee of $25. My friend came across a twin turbo Porsche on the freeway in California that had the plate WHYTRY on it. He tried with his Toyota Supra. He told me all he heard was a WHOOSH and the Porsche was gone.

I backed out. I didn't wanna pay an annual fee.

What was the LA rate, Butch? For me it will bump my annual renewal from $203 to $218. Not enough to worry about.

Robert, quote your post to see what the tags are. I had only to change 2 things to make it work like that.

I have TREEWISE on my Ram. $34 to get it, and $25 per annum to keep it. Love it, considering how expensive personal plates are back in Blighty. And my wife has POPPET on her Jeep.

In PA they're cheap, but aren't allowed on commercial vehicles. :(

I can't believe they would pass up a revenue stream.

You can get all kinds of plates in Ohio,Veteran,personalized,wild life,fisherman,you name it.They all come with a fee of which I can't remember at the moment.

One however sticks in my mind.A lady at work ,with an '06 Mustang GT has plates that say "Sweetbabe" ,that's an understatement,believe me.:big-tongue3:
