Tamaulipas Graphic License Plates, 1998-present

28: Tamaulipas

Tamps Mex #WYE4122
Tamaulipas undated passenger issue (1998 issue). From Tamaulipas, in northern Mexico on the border with Texas. The graphic on this plate features a rock formation rising up from the desert on the horizon. This plate features the caption "Camino Nuevo," meaning (depending on the translation) "New Road," "New Path," or "New Way." I suspect this is more figurative than literal, sort of a "new road to the future" idea, although for all I know there might just be an actual new road in Tamaulipas that they're particularly proud of. Hey, if Michigan and Prince Edward Island can put their bridges on their plates, why not?
Tamps Mex #WYS6495
Tamaulipas undated passenger issue (2000 issue). Later variant of the plate above, with the "Camino Nuevo" removed. This particular plate seems to be an "end of roll" error, with a giant seam in the reflective material running across the center of the plate.
Tamps Mex #WZS-61-13
Tamaulipas undated passenger issue (2001 issue). Relatively simple graphic, with a light green design at the top. The state seal is located at the bottom right of the plate.
Tamps Mex #XAV-44-25
Tamaulipas undated passenger issue (2004 issue). This new issue was introduced in 2004 and is another to make use of a simpler, easier-to-read design. This issue includes a faint graphic of the state seal behind the serial.
Tamps Mex #XCS-41-32
Tamaulipas undated passenger issue (2007 issue). 2007 graphic from Tamaulipas, featuring a relatively simple design with a brown band at the bottom. The state shape appears in a gold-flake paint at top left, there has been some apparent color variation in this feature, with some appearing more reddish and others more gold.
Tamps Mex #XFJ-92-03
Tamaulipas undated passenger issue (2011 issue). Another simple graphic issue from Tamaulipas, featuring a green band at the bottom and Mexican flag at the top.
Tamps Mex #XHM-57-52
Tamaulipas undated passenger issue (2013 issue). This graphic was introduced in 2013 and again uses and red and green motif with the rising rock formation as seen on earlier graphic plates included at bottom.
