I hope this hasn't been the subject of a previous thread - I did a search and came up dry. Just curious what other SGT owners have come up with in the way of personalized plates for their Mustangs.

Here's the one I ordered and am still waiting to show up. They have an orange background available and I was going to order that, but it's pretty far on the red end ot the orange spectrum and would have clashed, so since the stripes surround the license plate area and I've got a brushed aluminum frame, I thought silver might work better. I'm not sure about the diamond plate effect, but if it doesn't look good in person, I'll mask the lettering and paint the whole tag(s) silver. Since the Texas Ford dealers have had a "Texas Ford Tough" campaign for several years, I thought the "Texas Tough" at the bottom would be appropriate, though it'll probably be covered up by the Shelby frame.

Looks cool, I prefer the plain white background. FYI, It's illegal to cover your license plate (paint). Some sharp Five-O might put you on the curb for it.

Texas is about to start allowing 7 character plates so that opens up more options for you.

Thanks! I do too - I think they really change the feel of the car. I probably wouldn't have changed them, but since the original dealer installed them, and they look good, they'll stay. I do need to get some 295s for the back......it's got 275s on it and they look pinched on the 10" wide wheels.

Hi, you mean a Belgian Shephard? I myself have a Belgian Terverun, he is 13 years old almost. He now has bone cancer, so sad times a coming.

PS Did you mean to post this in the German Shepard thread up above?

Sorry mods for replying here, but common interest it appears.

Yeah in hind site I probably should have picked that one...but now NY has made their plates this new "empire gold" color which doesn't seem to look good on any cars so I am stuck with it until we move south...here is what the new NY plates look like in case you haven't seen them yet:
