On Feb. 9, 2000, License plates were an exciting accouterment for your automobile, especially here in the Gem State.

Getting a Star Card is not the same as getting a license plate in Idaho.

On Feb. 9, 2000, License plates were an exciting accouterment for your automobile, especially here in the Gem State.
