[DML] Re: License plate option ...

Many States have similar programs. You can buy old plates from vendors
that specialize in buying and selling old plates. The problem often is
that in many States you need two plates and it is a lot harder to find
2 plates that are the same than just one. Another option is many
States have historic plates. In New Jersey we call them QQ plates
because they have QQ on them in addition to the #. You can't get them
until the car is 25 years old but that won't be a problem soon! Many
States also have "personal plates". You can get them to say specific
things for extra fees. All of this of course depends entirely on the
rules and regulations of the State you happen to live in. Many of
these rules are not openly advertised, you have to find someone
knowledgable enough and cooperative enough to explain all of this to
you. For instance in New Jersey they have collector registration. They
don't make it common knowledge, you have to ask for the form, they
don't have it out on the counter. New Jersey also has a special
exemption for cars that are driven less than 2,500 miles a year, they
can opt out of the dyno inspection. They don't tell everyone that
either. The bottom line is to get familiar with the rules in your
State, every State has different rules. Same thing for car insurance,
it too varies State to State. At large car shows and swap meets there
is usually at least one vendor selling old license plates. You might
also find some vendors in Hemmings Motor News.
