Frisco Goes Full Florida – What are All These Miami People Doing in Town All of a Sudden? Photographic Proof!

Friday, April 3rd, 2015

I says to myself, I says, what is this, did all of Miami Beach come to the Western Addition?

And then I see the Florida plates:

Oh, that explains that.  And then I notice the bluest Camaro I’ve ever seen.

Speaking of which, more Florida plates, this time in the 94102:

(Florida plates, heh.)

And what’s this, a brand-new LEAP bus?

Cf. this brand-new eBay bus. “Surf blue?” How about Bay Window Beige instead?

I cry foul:

Your monochromatic blues, your gold-wrapped Lambos, they all belong in the Sunshine State, non?

And the latest insult, on Van Ness?

Shouldn’t the neon pink MIAMI AD SCHOOL be in Miami and not SF?

We’re not ready for all this. Take your pinks and blues and head on home, Florida!

Here’s Why the 1960’s are Better Than the 1950’s or the 1970’s: DMV’s “California Legacy License Plate Program”

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

Here are the deets from last year about the “California Legacy License Plate Program.”

Well, now it’s 2015 and The People Have Spoken – only yellow-on-black, 1960’s-style retro-style license plates will be issued by the DMV, so sorry to you, fans of the 1950’s-style black-on-yellow and 1970’s-style yellow-on-blue plates. You’ll just have to bide your time.

Here are all the deets from your California Department of Motor Vehicles:

“Legislation introduced the California Legacy License Plate program offering vehicle owners the opportunity to purchase replicas of California license plates similar to those issued in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Only the 1960’s plate reached the required 7,500 orders before January 1, 2015, and will be the only one implemented. The 1950’s and 1970’s plates did not achieve the required 7,500 minimum orders. 

Legacy License plates can be ordered for any year model automobile, commercial vehicle, motorcycle, or trailer. The Legacy License Plate Program will not replace the current Year of Manufacture (YOM) license plate program.

The DMV is accepting pre-orders, for the 1960 Legacy plate, until the plates are ready to be manufactured. A pre-order form California Legacy License Plate Pre–Order Form (REG 17L) (PDF) is available for these plates. The completed form and $50 payment must be mailed to the address provided on the form. Payment can only be made by check, money order, or cashier’s check made payable to Department of Motor Vehicles. Pre–orders will NOT be processed at DMV Field offices or Auto Club offices.
