A couple weeks back, we learned that the Great Plate Auction of 2013 would feature HOUSTON as its primary vanity license plate for auction. We also learned that Dallas had a similar auction last year and sold FERRARI for $15,000. Of course that is what Dallas did.
The second of ten plates to be auctioned off January 25 at the Houston Auto Show is DYNAMO, in honor of the city's MLS franchise that recently reached its third MLS Cup game in four years.
Still eight more to come, which means more announcements and more finger crossing that those words include ASSHOLE, YOUSUCK and URANOOB.
We'll keep you posted.
