I’ve long felt that “vanity” plates, as we call them here in New York State, were a bit of an extravagance, as they cost an extra $30. But I’ve changed my mind. They might serve well as a conversation starter enroute to Merida this fall. (MEXICO was already taken so I had to use a digit instead of a letter; but perhaps it reads even better.) Stay tuned.
I love these retro NYS plates! They remind me of growing up in the capitol region.
Your so right, Eric. Only today, I complimented a local doctor on his USA purchased car, with plates that not only had his initials incorporated, but two “MD”s as well. (He and his wife are both doctors.) It was a fun interchange.
I’m still looking for the owner of the car I saw recently–Yucatan plates, but the plate HOLDER is from my former home, San Francisco.
Kind of fun.
Funny. We picked vanity plates, for the first time ever, for our van that we will drive to Merida. “Merida” was already taken in Virginia, so I picked “Merida2”- After I had completed the purchase, it occurred to me that “2merida” would have been more appropriate, but what the heck.
By the way, we are planning to take your preferred route -Columbia crossing to Saltillo, San Luis Potosi, Puebla, and hopefully a day in Palenque (if the dogs are not absolutely bonkers at that point).
