Default Vanity plates disposition

I've got vanity plates on my car, and I'm wondering how I transfer them to the new one when I buy it. Has anyone been in this situation before?

I was looking on line at this site:
http://www.honolulu.gov/csd/vehicle/
I did not find anything definitive, but it appears before you can sell a car with the vanity plate you have to turn in the pate and get a regular plate. I would suggest you call them and see if you can transfer the plate to the new car first.

Yeah, I couldn't find anything online about it. Phone call or stop by satellite city hall, I guess. I was hoping someone here might have had occasion to do it.

A friend of mine just went through this. He told me the following:
The vanity plate belongs to the owner, not the car. So it is possible to “keep” the plate when you sell the car. When you do that you have to put the plate in storage (the word he used was suspension) and they will hold onto the plate until you want to put it on a different car.
New plate will be issued to the car you are selling.

It's been a few years ago, but I kept the vanity plates for a classic car because it was for a certain year. Later, I put those vanity plates on another classic car of that same year.
I had to put "regular" plates back onto the first car before I could hold over the vanity plates while waiting to get the second car. I don't remember the exact form I used, but it was easy to accomplish.

[When I finally sold the second car, I let the plates go with the car when I sold it. Since the next old car I bought was a different year/model, so I need to obtain fresh vanity plates that matched that car.]
