"Natural" Texas License Plates: The Mind Assumes Weed, and the Vanity Plates Deliver
This one is not available.
Ever on the lookout for more ways to praise the Lone Star State -- and make a few more bucks in the process -- the people at myplates.com are now offering "Natural Texas" vanity license plates.
A field of weeds, the plates look like -- not exactly inspiring. To myplates, though, they shine: "Bluebonnet, Primrose, and Texas Paintbrush. They're all there. Growing along the bottom of these new official Texas license plates. The design, called Natural Texas, features the most popular wildflowers in Texas," the company says.
Ten percent of the base plate price goes to the Texas Parks & Wildlife Foundation, which is nice.
Talk of "natural, " Texas" and weed-like flowers can lead the mind in another direction, however. Can myplates deliver?
