License Plate Auction Expands

“MY TEXAS,” “GIDDY UP” among additions



    License Plate Auction Expands

    Evidently “COWBOYS,” “RANGERS,” “PORSCHE,” “FERRARI,” “MUSTANG,” “AGGIES1,” “GOHORNS,” “SOONERS,” “RAIDERS,” and “DRAGONS” weren’t enough.

    The field of available options in the upcoming Great Texas Plate Auction recently became more plentiful when the folks at announced the additions of “MY TEXAS,” “T BIGTEX,” “T DALLAS,” “FTWORTH,” “T STARS,” “MAVS FAN,” “GIDDY UP,” “RANCHER,” “FISHING,” and “HUNTING” to the mix, and geez, really, “GIDDY UP?”

    What, no “YEEHAW,” or “SIX GUNS?”

    The organizers and state could make a Treasury Department pile o’ cash if they add in “WOODROW.” Sure, the school sits over here in East Dallas, but, man, those grads are freakin’ everywhere.

    Oh, and the auction date, initially slated for sometime in September — the exact date is moot because the auction — has been moved to Jan. 13, 2011, three weeks before the Super Bowl, according to the news release from My Plates, and yeah, there’s a connection there somewhere if you look hard enough … maybe … ostensibly to allow time for more options to enter the mix.
    Sure, if they say so.
