On Thursday, one Aggies fan paid $115,000 at an auction for the
rights to own a license plate labeled “12THMAN” for 10 years (after
which it can be renewed for $795), plus getting the honor bestowed

was $25,000 for “HOUSTON.”

Last year, the state of Texas passed a law allowing license
plates to contain seven letters, with My Plates — the state
customized license plate contractor — having the first rights

We just hope the winning bidder didn’t have to sell his or her
car to come up with all that money. Wouldn’t that be fitting?
