I don't consider myself a daredevil, but I do run these '47 plates on my M15 even though it is registered with Historical Vehicle plates...

http://farm1.static.flickr.com/132/322649409_9f34cfd542.jpg

I carry the "real" plates with me.

I don't think the cops are out to get us. I believe that if I got stopped I certainly MAY get a ticket (and probably deserve one), but I doubt if I actually would (could be wrong, of course ;)).

Believe it or not, I have exceeded the speed limit on occasion, I think I've driven with a lamp or two burned out, and I remember rolling through a stop sign on a right turn once...maybe I am a daredevil [:0]

In Montana you can legally register your vintage plate if they are the same year is your vehicle. I have 1965 and 1970 plates but haven't found 1961 yet.

Here in Ontario you can register your car on "Year of Manufacture" plates (shows "YOM" on the paperwork). When I moved back to Ontario in 2002, I found my parent's license plates from 1967 in their garage, so put them on my 1967 Olds 98 convertible (I think they'd saved them since that was Canada's centenial year). You had to jump through a few hoops, like sending the actual plates and original ownership to the government for approval, but a few years ago when I did it it was a free service - I think they charge $200 for the priviledge now.

But the point of my story, I still got pulled over by a cop, who asked where my plates were. I figured somebody must have stolen the '67 plates, but they were still on the car. I had to explain the YOM program to him.

As a side note, in 1967 my folks owned a station wagon (didn't everybody?) and in Ontario, all station wagons got plates with the letter "X" on them. I've had one person in about four years point out to me at a show that technically, those plates aren't correct for a convertible.

In North Carolina You can run same year plates on anything 35 or more years old so long as you have a current year plate and registration in the car. Also 35 years or older does not require an inspection sticker.

I don't know about Indiana, but Washington requires both a front and a rear plate...(but I never did like that rule very much either ;))

Washington does do the "YOM" thing. It's just that since this car was made in Canada and spent its whole live in BC, I like the idea of the correct year BC plates...probably just for shows, however. I think I'd have an easier time explaining to an officer if I was going to/from a show rather than just crusin' with these plates.

At one time Indiana used front and rear plates also. Dont know when they quit, early 60's I would guess.
The new program doesnt seem to require a plate for the front for the YOM program.

You can only do that in states (like Indiana) that have only one plate. In two-plate states, the front and rear plates gotta match, whether they're YOM plates or standard issue. And FWIW, in some states/provinces that permit YOM plates, the legal plates must be in the car; in other YOM states, the YOM plates ARE the legal plates. Finally, some states (eg, Calif) do not permit the use of YOM plates that duplicate an existing legal plate; others don't care. (I researched all this stuff back when I was writing the DC YOM plate law.)

And Dick: you and I share a dislike of front plates. But I've changed my ways after picking up a couple of $75 tickets!

Others may have noticed but were afraid to point that out. In the 1950s and 60s, Virginia issued plates with a CONV prefix -- standing for convertible (ie, a station wagon or small van used as both a passenger car and for commercial purposes). They are highly favored today as YOM plates on convertibles. I made the mistake of pointing out to the owner of a 62 Ford convertible that his CONV plates were not really correct for his car. He was very unhappy with me, to put it mildly. Since then, I have generally kept my knowledge of license plate trivia to myself.

:) Along these lines, has anyone noticed the background wall decorations of the "garage" in which Dennis Gage advertises Battery Tender with a 1963 Falcon convertible on The Speed Channel?

Hanging on the wall behind him are two [what appear to be legitimate] Indiana vanity license plates. One says SLEEK 56 and the other says 63 HAWK. I'm not sure what Dennis owns or drives that warrants the Sleek 56 plate, but of course he does own a 1963 Hawk.

[:I] (BTW, this morning's session of Two Guys Garage (or whatever they call it) included a "trip" to a car show. In the show was a highly modified 1960 Rambler American station wagon. The announcer, who was old enough to know better, told viewers that AMC originally built these cars with 4-cylinder engines! [:0] If the announcer was in his 30s, I might cut him some slack...but this guy was in his late 50s or early 60s; he should have known better. 'Probably wasn't a gearhead as a kid. :( Pity. :(;)[8D]) BP
