The U of M Club of Charlotte and the Michigan Triangle Alumni Club have been working hard at getting specialized Michigan license plates. We need to get 300 orders for plates before the state will start production and are almost there.
Below is the official information and the link to the formal application. If you are so inclined, please do not hesitate to order! I think Michigan might be the only truly out-of-state plates to get issued here in NC - they have Clemson, South Carolina, etc. but nothing as far as Michigan to the best of my knowledge. Pretty cool!
