Vote on the New SC License Plate
Apparently South Carolina is letting people vote online for the design of the new license plate. I think that’s a neat idea, but I’m sort of disappointed with the three designs. Two of the designs feature a centered palmetto tree, just like the current one, but I like the current one better than either of those. The other design is the state flag tucked into the corner of the plate. It looks decent but I can see that one getting covered up by plate frames. My vote goes to the palmetto tree at sunrise/sunset, but I’d be happy to keep my current palmetto tree plate.
Update 2007-08-28: Looks like they picked the plate that I voted for (PDF warning). I still like the current plate better, and I don’t care for the cheesy .com advertisement on the new plate. Plus, the new plate will aggravate SC Gamecock fans as it leans toward Clemson colors!
