It will take about a year for me to get my smart.

But, I knew if I waited that long, all the good personalized license plates for smarts would be gone for the state of Texas. Some, unfortunately, already were. But, I did get the vanity plate BE SMRT (Texas allows only 6 characters for a license plate.) So my advice is to act now, even though you don't have your car yet to get the vanity plate that you want for your state. Keep in touch1 Allen, Austin, TX

Hi Bill; In Texas you are allowed to buy a personalized license plate for any non-commercial vehicle. My new plate (BE SMRT) is currently on my Ford Explorer PU. When my smart gets here, I'll transfer the personalized plate to the smart and buy a replacement (regular) plate for the PU. Allen

how do you get the plate without the car? Did you license it to a different car?

I agree...get your vanity plate now, even if it goes on your other vehicle. You can always transfer the plate when your smartie arrives. They are going fast. NC allows 8 characters on their license plates; I wanted GETSMART and it was available the week I picked up my baby, but had to wait to get the metal plate before I could order the new one. When I received the metal plate 2 weeks later and went to order my new one, it was already gone. So I had to settle for this one.

Hi Harleyman! Just now seeing the smart cars in Newport Beach. Wanted to get a red one, but the color looks orangish. Think I'll change to black. Have you heard anything about the price going up now that people are seeing them and wanting them and the gas prices?? Stay cool, Christie

We ordered our Smart in Jan or Feb. 2007, I knew the better license plates would be taken so I requested and got a HOLD on "SMART KR". We have the license plate now and we all just love the Smart car.

I reserved my plate. I won't be able to order it until I get my permanent registration. Some states will do this for you, reserve the name for a few months so no one can grab it.

I just received my Plates, I went with GETSMRT but with the movie coming out, most people will think it was the Get Smart movie, when I am really trying to say Get Smart, and get one of these awesome cars. Will add plate to my photos in a few days.

Oh and one other thing. My daughter told me to get the word "donkey" because the word smart is above it and DMV wouldn't get it until it was too late.
