Can one letter make all the difference in the world? Probably not. But without that seventh letter you couldn't spell: pumpkin, puppets. or pyramid. That would be a travesty. For those who agree, October 8 is a red-letter day. That's when you can purchase a 7-letter Texas license plate.
According to My Plates, 7-character license plates start at $395 a year. It's cheaper, though, if you purchase it for multiple years. My Plates said
My Plates says on the first ever 7 FOR 7 day Texans bought more than $1 million worth of license plates. During the Great Plate Auction in 2011, more than 4,0000 seven-character personalized plates were sold.
