Do you love Dallas? Do you have thousands of dollars to burn? Do you love to burn that money on frivolous things?
Then we've got good news for you. The state of Texas is currently auctioning off a "Dallas" vanity plate.
Bidding starts at $1,000. How high will it go? Only time will tell. It probably won't match the $115,000 fetched by the Texas A&M "12THMAN" plate last September. Certainly it can at least best the $3,000 shelled out for "PACKERS."
Let's just hope that some deep-pocketed philanthropist chips in at least $26,000, so we can score bragging rights over Houston, whose eponymous plate went for $25,000 last January.
