Ah ha! I’ve suspected for some time that Montana has a higher percentage (per capita) of personalized license plates than most states, and now comes confirmation. The American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators just released the results of a nationwide survey that ranks Montana #5 in terms of vanity plate percentage. Ahead of us: Virginia, New Hampshire, Illinois, and Nevada; dead-last is Texas.
And for some reason, as you may recall, I really get a kick out of the customized plates here in Big Sky Country, which is why I created a “sub-blog” called Great Montana Plates.
