    I feel the lonesome mann without these original registration plates ! The inspector of the Traffic control / Road network came to gather them , why after so years ? When the USA Texas title was delivered many years ago and i thought the plates where mine ? But they are gone and i don't seem them again.

    Is it possible to buy copies or fake ones with my Texas truck lonely star ?

    I still have some pictures with the number/letters

    Joe, who has Desert Truck Parts and makes the third seat for Suburbans makes license plates but don't know about Texas plates. It is not a cheap process. An older man, now retired, used to make some for us using dead soft copper and hardwood stamps. He had a tracing (or copying) mill that could do the details for the blanks and the make the letters/number stamps. These plates were very easy to ding up so had to be in fully enclosed frames but they did have good detail. Has wood cutting season started yet? Others can give you a way to reach Joe.
