You have to love the concept: A Kansas license plate with a buffalo in the middle of it. Finally. A design we can all get excited about. Granted, it’s only available as a vanity plate, but it’s a great improvement and a step forward as we "brand" our state. Trouble is, from a distance â€” say, about one car length away â€” it looks like an old rusty plate. Maybe there’s just no pleasing us, but perhaps a different, less rusty-looking color choice would have been better.
Kansas keeps going with these faint images on our tags that aren’t really visible from a few feet away. Our Capitol building with the cloud above it just looks sort of like a big mushroom cloud from a short distance. Wait. Maybe that’s appropriate. Let’s see how the Legislature’s special session turns out.
