I believe you can get a Black background plate with a Washington state university theme. I don't think you have to be an alumni to get one.NICE!! I wish I could run California black plates in Washington. They look sweet and on your black QV, it really works.
We have white, blue, red, all mixed together on our Washington plates. I personally don't like Washington plates at all. If I can't get a front plate exception, I may need to go with a WA specialty plate that looks a lot better. Maybe a Quadrifoglio plate LOL.
The illustrated California plate over the grill is not mounted on a QV. I don't think it would work on a QV, as it would block too much vent opening.
