August 2010 ADN vanity plate article

Yes, I saw that today, the Anchorage Daily News ran a piece about vetting Alaskan vanity plates.

No real surprises, though I was pleased to see that there is a variety of people who review submissions.

Always good to see Alaskan plates in the press.

Plate of the week: SOLDIT

This is Charles Blalock, an Alaskan real estate agent.

I don't know him personally; I spotted this shot in the local newspaper. But anybody who includes their license plate in their professional portrait photo is OK in my book. :-)

Plate of the week: HOTH

Thinkgeek has posted what they believe to be the best Alaskan license plate ever. I did get a chuckle out of it when it clicked.

For those of you not acquainted with Star Wars lore: Hoth (Wikipedia).

Come along now - my joints are freezing up.

The Last Statehood Plate

This plate (FUW 999) is the very last of Alaska's 50th Anniversary of Statehood license plates.

I'll be running with this plate until a new style becomes available (or until I break down and get another vanity style!)

The word from the DMV is that they'll be skipping the rest of the F series entirely, and going back to the fully-embossed blue-on-gold plates starting with GAA.

Plate of the Week: Alaskan Iditarod Finisher Plates

This will be a tough one to get for sure.

Full details on The Alaska DMV Iditarod Finisher plate page. Also covered by The Juneau Empire article about Alaskan Iditarod Finisher plates.

Some prototypes that included the Iditarod crest (which didn't make it to the final design) have also been floating around:

Trivia item: That's Alaska collector Fred Agree's dog, Blackie.
