The ego of Texas drivers is a boon for the state’s general fund.

Myplates.com is hosting a week-long sale of seven-character personalized license plates. Years ago, people referred to them as “vanity plates” since it seemed vain to spend extra money to put your name on a license plate.

But now they’re called personalized plates and are considered a fun and creative method of expression — and a good way to pad state coffers. Yesterday’s sale raised $422,000 for the state general revenue fund, with six days still remaining in the sale.

I don’t plan on buying a vanity plate, but if I did I’d probably get something like this one (which is still available):
