Newest Updates Added! (October 10 2017)

Soooooo....where did the Summer go !?! Raquel and I had a busy Summer with moving my parents to a new home and moving a kid off to college. What a whirlwind, so needless to say, the updates for the website had to wait.
With Thanksgiving being today here in Canada, we both had a day off from our paying jobs, so could hunker-down and do a bunch of updates for the website before the photo folder got too big. Were able to add 47 more photos and some information amendments for your enjoyment.
If you have anything to add or correct, let us know.

Today, we updated photos and information for Arkansas, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Caroliina, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin !
As you can see, we added the incredible recently-discovered Louisiana State Police "game changer" old plate that was found at an Antique Mall in Carlisle Pennsylvania just a few days ago. A 4" x 9" mystery plate that has us all scratching our heads, as it "appears' to be too big to be a motorcycle license plate and too small to be a car-sized plate. Just amazing "missing link" kinda stuff.
Hats off to the following people who contributed to this recent round of updates: Barrett Wilkinson, Mike Morgan, Jimmy "Ace" Aitken, Nick Leary, Stephen Tuday, Tom Fiske, Andrew Wilgermein, Garrett Green, Tony Aleria, Jason Stone, Tom Sheehy, Darryl Lindsay, Nick Kanaya, Bill Swank, Dale LaRue, Paul Petrinovich and Joe Sallmen . Thanks to all of you for your kind attention and contributions to the archive.
I will continue to post any items of interest on the State Trooper Plates group and community pages on Facebook. This link will bring you to the Community Page, where all you have to do is hit "like" and you're in. If you want to be in the more active group for discussions and trading, there is a State Trooper Plates Closed Group where you can put a request into us administrators to let you in. Either page will get you to where you can keep up with the freshest info in this hobby of ours.

we still need your help with providing photos, information and recommendations that you think would improve the website. As we've said time and time again, we want to make sure that photos are given proper credit as many have come "third and fourth hand". Thanks for all the positive feedback. It is always so nice to have folks approach me to offer their compliments about the site and in many cases, a debt of thanks that my website assisted them in avoiding a bad purchase for a license plate that was marketed as being a SP-HP plate, and a quick check of the website on the smartphone revealed otherwise. Glad to be of help, especially given the cost of SP-HP license plates out there these days.
Nice that the technology allows you to take the website with you in your travels!

Your Help Always Needed and Appreciated!

We are still a not-for-profit website dedicated to providing a free and comprehensive reference tool for the hobbyist and historian. We bring to you this website at our cost, solely for the showcasing of historical and hobby interest for this interesting subject and to foster interest in others for the same enjoyment. We rely on your feedback and we rely on your contributions to make this site even more successful than it already has become. We need your photos and we need your information where we are lacking same. If you see something on the road or anywhere else in your travels that we don't have showcased: Please send it to us! We'll make sure you get the credit for it! We also get some information for license plates and vehicles that require correction, so your input to fix what's wrong or missing is also needed. With that said, since we started this site in 2006, we get LOTS of photos from many contributors. We want to make sure that each one is properly credited where anonymity is not requested. With the switch-over to the new layout, we may have inadvertently omitted your name, so drop us a line to let us know where you need to shine!

New Assistance from the creator of the New Look!

Norm's wife Raquel has always been a graphic designer since her college days and has worked as an embroidery digitizer since the mid 1990's. Being such a talented self-starter herself, she enrolled in a certification course for web design in 2010/2011 to broaden her creative portfolio. Long story short: Norm not only has a wonderful wife, but now he has an additional Web-Master for this site which takes a load off of Coop's shoulders! Raquel has taken the foundation and framework commenced by Coop and has kicked-it up into the latest "web-magic" that she has learned well in such a short period of time. She deserves a plug too in case you like what you see for your own web application or if you need a logo digitized/embroidered. Her own website is (Lucky guy I am!)
