[DML] Re: Failed CA Emissions UPDATE (still bad)

Generally historical vehicles are classified as driven less than 
6,000 miles a year. If you can live with that, then go for the 
historical plates. In Ohio, Michigan, WVa, and PA historical plates 
make you exempt from smog checks, yearly liscense renewals, and you 
qualify for a steep discount with insurance.

I did say about checking with your area for any law changes, but 
when most cars reach 25 years old, most people don't drive them 
everyday. But there are some that do, and if it bothers you, then 
keep up the standard as you were. Even here in Ohio, the police have 
far better things than to concern themselves with logging miles of 
vehicles with historical plates on them. I'm sure they have even 
less time in California compared to Ohio. 

If you can sleep better at night by not having historical vehicle 
plates, then dont't get them.  I can't wait till my April 
registration to get my historical plates, though my car passes with 
flying colors on smog (2524, 16634) I'm in it for the insurance 
discounts, and the removal of annual liscense renewals, at least 
that is how it is in Ohio. Bummer, if it doesn't apply in CA.

On 16851 I have a hollowed out catalytic converter, but still will 
get historical plates for the savings. Doesn't bother me in the 
least, but then again, I come nowhere close to 6,000 miles a year. 
500-1,000 miles if I am lucky anymore. I wouldn't worry about it if 
you just drive your car for recreational fun, and you have other 
vehicles for primary transportation.
