Which state has the best looking license plates???

I very recently, well, not exactly very recently, it was two months ago when I bought my 2007 Acura RDX used... My state is taking so long to issue the plate, I had to go to the dealer to pick up two, five day temporarys because my original temporary ran out today.... So, I've been thinking about this for years now, but who do you think has the best looking plates...





Here are all 50 states... Some are old like Texas, who has since changed it...





New Texas plates!!!





Sorry y'all, but this thing is FUGLY unless you drive a taxi, he he!!!


So thing brings up my point...

Mississippi
Tennessee
Alabama
Georgia

These are the best looking plates, but Louisiana isn't too bad, I feel sorry for y'all Yorkers though!!!

But hey, if you love you're state, I guess that makes up for it...

So, what do you all think???

then why did you look at the thread?

My home state of New York, clearly has the ugliest of all plates. IMO, I have always liked the New Mexico plate, esp. in yellow.

Arizona because of (IMO) its simple design and easy to read/pleasing font.

But if California's black plate is an option too, then I agree with NYTHAWK.

I know a lot of people on here live in Canada... I've never been to Canada... Heck, I've never been north of Tennessee... I wouldn't know a Canada plate if you came through my iPhone and hit me over the head with one... Haha... I'm sorry, I honestly don't know... Maybe, we can do a Canadian thread...
