I'm not sure if it's the same for all states, but in MO you can use YOM plates for historic/classic cars. Someone on the local VW Club Facebook page started talking about it and made me wanna look into it for when I get my SX/4 fixed and licensed. Here there are some criteria for registering as a Historic vehicle, but from what I've heard no one ever asks for the log book of personal miles and for the most part it's pretty hard to confirm even if you do have a detailed book of mileage.

Anyway, here are the details for registering in MO.

And here are the plates I just found on eBay and now have me pretty excited to get my car on the road! I already emailed the licensing office and the personal plate is not being used and eligible for use as YOM plates!

Anyone out there rocking historic plates on their Eagle or other cars?

I think in NY you can use antique plates on an antique car, but here in NJ they don't allow that which stinks. :( I would love to put some period correct plates on my wagon.

In Colorado, a car had to have been manufactured in '75 or earlier to qualify as a collector vehicle and get special plates.

Yeah, in MO it just has to be at least 25 years old.

Thanks man! When I searched eBay for 1983 MO Plates there were only two sets available. LAM CHP and 1-4WD...and obviously one of them was just perfect so I couldn't pass them up!

They just changed the law in Colorado (AGAIN) regarding the use of collector plates. I had to become an expert on the new law because they wanted me to get an emissions test to re-register my car, which had been grandfathered in the last time they changed the law in 2009. Now, any car older than 32 years old can get collector plates, but there are now three classes of collector cars in Colorado, each with its own set of rules.

With regards to Year of Manufacture plates in CO, the law is (or was) that you could only do it if the plates had the year stamped in them, which stopped somewhere in the mid 70s I think. And there is a form to fill out, and you also have to have the "NOW" plates, etc. I have some for my 72 Gremlin.

And those are really cool plates you scored!!!

damn, those are HOT for your sx4!!! I just have special Oregon military designation plates on honeybadger. $86/2 years, plus $10 extra for the 2 years that goes to the Oregon veterans something or another. but hey, I can stay free at any state park for up 4 or 5 days free. same with my other car. my other car however has the Oregon disabled vet plates. I NEVER pay a registration fee on those plates. and they also get me into any state park for free for several days.

keeping the old yellow/blue Oregon plates on my wagon tho. those plates are staying.
