My OT '70 Chevelle isnt allowed them because of the date of manufacter, but my '59 SedanDelivery is because it was on them since 1963 but they could not be "retro'ed" on it if they turned in years ago or transfered from out of state. Otherwise the are only allowed to be issed to 63-early 70.

... or that is my understanding.

I think it could be pretty cool.

I always wanted personal plates and when I finally got around to making it happen, Indiana had started using these lame printed versions. It would be really cool if they could do a run of plates in the original raised style.

What's Brown should be wiped! If you really think he is doing something to better our hobby, think again...it's about money.

If this becomes reality, can we still run original (old) plates or will we be forced to run a "legacy" plate (gay name, by the way)?

Everyone on this board should send a request for support:
http://govnews.ca.gov/gov39mail/mail.php

Request Support for A.B. 1658

I was the protagonist for the Y.O.M. (Year of Manufacture) license plate program that you signed into law during your first term as Governor. Now there is a "California Bill to create a Legacy License Plate Program" awaiting your signature. This requires 7500 applications that must be received by the DMV prior to January 2015. Originally the YOM program required 2500 pre-orders before it could be initiated. The 2500 pre-orders required was dropped from the bill because it just wasn't a real world requirement. I am asking you to drop the 7500 pre application that would require the applicant the need to wait up to two years to maybe get the license they applied for as per this requirement. The YOM program has been very successful and I'm sure the "Legacy License Plate" program will be even more successful and produce income for the state and make thousands of antique and classic car owners very happy as they continue to preserve these cars as part of California's great history.
I sincerely do not believe the 7500 application requirement is a "Real World" request.

Thanks for your support in the past and your consideration now.

new plates, new numbering sequence, old style colors.

I'm not expecting "period correct" just something better than we have now.

If you have a vehicle that qualifies why not just get original YOM plates. It seems that this program is designed for PT Cruisers and other wannabes....
