My new license plate..

Iowa was surprised at the popularity of these plates. The state sold over 20,000 in the first two months they’ve been offered.

This is mine: ACD 1T. It's a British plate dated from 1978 (the 'T' suffix being vehicles registered between 1st August '78 and 31st July '79), with ACD being my initials.
Over here we cannot request a specific combination from the govenment agency that issues plates, you have to make do with what's already been issued. It's possible to buy plates from them but only in the current format or from a specific unissued range from 1983 to 2001.
Other than that we have many dealers who own or act as agents for those wanting to sell their plate. Very old plates or those that spell words or names can be very valuable.
Oddly enough there was/ is a 'JJZ' range of plates in Northern Ireland. We can use them on the mainland too and many Bullitt owners source these from dealers or the issuing agency that have recently started selling Northern Irish plates.
JJZ 109 is thankfully on a '68 clone!

True story…

Back in 2001, the local Ohio BMV office manager would not allow me to select any derivation of “BULLITT” regarding my plate(s) …he stated that I was attempting to advertise the word “BULLSHIT” and that profanity was not tolerated. I tried to explain to him the background of the word “BULLITT” and that my vehicle was parked outside and that the word “BULLITT” is factory placarded on the vehicle in various locations. No joy…he didn’t care and chose not to witness the factory placards…I was not getting any form of “BULLITT”…so I chose the paint code for DHG and the Bullitt serialization number...

NOTE: I will say that since I ordered a mil vet plate and that he noticed I was a Navy vet on my DD-214, it may have had something to do with his shooting down a derivation of “BULLITT”…this dude was a hardcore Marine vet and maybe he didn’t like Navy dudes too much…and maybe I made a high quality Marine joke or something.

Anyway…here’s my custom plate…

My bad…I posted in the 2008/2009 section and I have a 2001.

Sorry about that.
