  • Vanity plates

    My new tag for the Orange truck finally came in. I'm curious as to how many times I'll have to explain it every time I go somewhere. [xx(]

    Up here you cannot get a vanity plate for a Collector vehicle, only a Collector plate with an arbitrary assigned number.

      Nice plate Matt! [^] Just ask Dick Steinkamp how many time he had to explain that S2D thing!

      Pretty neat that you get to have your name at the bottom! You are Jeff Davis, right?

      Odd name for a county, he must have been famous!

      Oh! I see you live in Georgia.gov, must be a new COUNTRY, I didn't know they seceded from the Union! [}]

      Makes you wonder what these Gov. computer minded people are thinking, is COMMON sense now obsolete?

        Rich, Jefferson Davis was the President of the Confederate States of America. The county was named after him looong ago. [^]

            Neat plate! The colors go well with the truck too. I wish Arkansas didn't have the yearly extra charge for special plates. When I lived in Virginia I had a special plate on Old Spot.
            BTW Cousin Jeff was right. Constitutionally the states did have the right to secede.

              Matthew,
              I like your plate. You'll probably have to explain it every time you park. Great way to teach folks about the Brand.

                Thanks guys.

                I've gotten used to having to explain what a Studebaker is. It amazed me at how many kids would walk up to me at school and ask if the truck was an old Chevy. Maybe they couldn't read those big white letters on the tailgate? [V]

                  Unfortunately you may be correct about the kids not being able to read.

                    I'd hope not! I'm talking about high schoolers. Well, on second thought, you may be right.... [)]

                      Like Rich says, however, few will get the S2D part.

                      I must have had 100 people ask me what Esss Two Dee meant. It sort of came to be a standing joke and my friends all called the car Ess Two Dee [)]

                        I built an addition for these people and I couldn't figure out their vanity tag. They finally told me it is YES TO TENNIS, DUH!

                          Mark, that is the standard Georgia plate, not collector plate. What if the 40+ year old car is your daily driver? Does BC insist you get a collector plate instead of a standard plate? Just curious.

                          Hey Rich, MS also has a Jeff Davis county as well. I have a '64 plate from this county. While I don't know this as fact, I'd bet most CSA states have a county named after the President.

                          Just a note about the .gov on new plates. Many dislike the the removal of a given states identity (like The Peach State). A guy in Indiana was selling 'BACK HOME AGAIN' decals to cover the 'www.IN.gov' on the plate.

                            Actually, the one I have is the "Prestige Plate".

                            Here's the antique plate, like I had before.




                            The one my granddad has on many of his vehicles.




                            My absolute favorite.

                              Not as original as S2D, but I had these plates on my '76 Avanti.
