Vintage Michigan License Plate Making a Comeback
I know this sounds crazy, but I didn't even know what a vintage "Water-Winter Wonderland" license plate was.
All I can tell you is that it dates back to 1965, I guess that's why they call it a vintage license plate.
And the biggest reason why I don't know anything about it, is because I was only nine years old when these license plates were first introduced in Michigan.
So apparently many motorists from Michigan have been requesting these vintage blue plates to make a comeback in 2021-2022.
According to mlive.com:
"I am proud to give Michiganders back a longtime favorite license plate that also marks a critical moment in the history of our nation's democracy," Benson said. "In 1965, we worked together as a nation to protect and advance voting rights in pursuit of a more perfect union, just as today we must come together as a nonpartisan, pro-democracy coalition to protect and advance our elections."
I think this is really cool that Jocelyn Benson, Michigan Secretary of State, is on board with this and bringing the license plate back to be purchased.
The "Water-Winter Wonderland" plate is available for passenger vehicles and can be purchased as a disability plate. When purchasing, there is a one-time $5 graphic plate fee in addition to the normal registration fees. Personalization of the plate is available, though limited to six digits due to the font size and size accompanying the vintage reissue.
Just in time for the holidays. This is the perfect gift for your Christmas stocking. You can get the "Water-Winter Wonderland" license plate online and it's available in a Secretary of State branch office.
