So I was looking at the old old Sudes, like 1902 and so forth, and I realized that the early electric Studes kinda look like the car that is on Utah's Vintage Vehicle plates.

Here are the plates I'm talking about:
26620

And here is an early Stude:
26619

They are fairly close, and there are other Studes that look like it.
Just a thought.

Yeah unfourtunately. It isn't allowed to be a daily driver. IT is only for shows, tours, and special get togethers. But you can still take it for a cruise.
As far as time restrictions, I'm not 100% positive, but I thinkg once its dark its not allowed.

We have similar plates here in Washington. Two huge benefits: You pay a one-time fee...no yearly fees. No front plate required. That's great, especially on an Avanti. The flip side: not for daily driver. Any restrictions are basically the same you have on your collector car insurance...so no big deal.

Yeah, those are benifits here too. Like you don't really have to do saftey inspection.
And front plates are optional here for all cars, so you can also have custom ones. I want to get one for the front that looks like an old Utah 66 plate and have it match my actual plate number.

Front plate on an Avanti eh? Useually you don't see it. I can understand why.

If you find that Utah plate and need it restored... contact me, I do not restore the Scotchlight coated (reflective) ones, however.

I'm not sure the chances of finding an origional 66 plate that would match. I have a few buddies that do sign making, so I'm going to have them print out a plate.
I thank you for your offer tho.
