I`m just curious about what criteria various States & Provinces have for issuing special license plates for older vehicles. Here in B.C. Canada, we have "collector" plates available IF your car meets certain guidelines. First off, it must be stock, an aftermarket radio, a tach or gauges will disqualify you from getting the plates. The car must also be in somewhat decent shape (at least at the time of application), multiple photo`s are required, as per instructions. If you have the car stock, & then modify it, your insurance can be void in case of an accident. Some benefits to these plates is much cheaper insurance (about $200.00 a year for full coverage. You are also exempt from yearly emmisions testing,although recently they changed it so you do have to pass the emmisions test first to be exempt later. You must have another car registered & insured in your name to qualify, & you can`t use the collector car for driving to & from work. Any car 25 years old or older can apply, as well as some special, low production (under 1500 per year) cars at least 15 years old.In Washington State, I`ve seen many older cars, stock, modified, as well as fairly rough, with special old car plates. Apparently there, age alone determines eligblity. How about in your area?

A long the lines of collector plates, but not actaully saying collector or street rod are the states that allow the use of year of manufacture plates. California allows this on cars '62 or before. My brother has a set of '62 plates on his Falcon, and I have a '46 plate for my '46 ford
