1817 License Plate Auction

To help us celebrate U-M's 200th anniversary, My Plates and the State of Texas are auctioning off license plate number 1817. 

Low-number plates like this rarely become available - and, since the winner of this auction gets full renewal / sale / transfer rights, this could be the last time this number is ever available. 

Think you might be interested in bidding?  Register your interest at The auction is expected to take place in April 2017.  If the winner selects the U-M plate background, a share of the proceeds will go to the Dallas and Houston scholarship funds.
