In the " I love the picture.....", there's a picture of a little girl standing behind a 1953 Buick.  The license plate is from Iowa "THE CORN STATE." All of the 50's and 60's Kansas license plates had  "THE WHEAT STATE" embossed on them.  What did your state's licencse plates have on them touting the state?

Shoot, Kansas license plates were even shaped like the state.

Louisiana was “The Sportsman’s Paradise” for years, and sought after plates from that state feature a pelican.

 

Louisiana is one of the toughest states to acquire nice pairs of original plates.  The climate took away a lot of them.  
 

I once owned a full run of Louisiana plates, was talked out of it by a good friend in the late 1970’s, for probably 5% of what they’d bring now.  Oh well!

I just dug this out of storage, washed it, and took this photo for my sister who was working on a painting for my dad. It was on the Roadmaster when I brought it to NM.

Last KS plate it wore before it became New Mexican.

With the introduction of personalised registration plates we no longer have anything.
