    Took my daily driven 41 Ford pickup to the grocery store. As I was walking to the door another car guy pulled in with his 41 Ford coupe.
    We talked for a few minutes. He had a 41 license plate on his car. Asked me if I wanted one. Said I had been thinking about getting one for my pickup.
    He swung by my place a couple days later and gave me this plate. I got it registered for all of $44.00 for life!

    Just one plate? What if someone puts the OTHER plate on their car? Seems more than sketchy, could lead to a lot of problems here.

    I checked on that. I checked to see if it was already registered. It was not.
    If someone tries to register it's mate. They can't, because it is tied to me and my truck now.
    In Washington state you are only required to display one vintage plate on the back of your vehicle.
    So I did do my due diligence and all is good!

    I love doing things like that. Many times friends have done the same for me as well. I would rather see something get used and loved rather than sitting with my junk collecting dust. My dad used to have restorers from the antique club looking for a specific model A part and when they came over 9 time out of 10 he would just give the part to whoever. I still do that if I can. just the other day a friend liked the oil can and holder on the firewall of my 14 buick. nxt week I saw him again and gave him a spare holder and can I had hanging around. You would have thought I gave him $100 bucks. Pay it forward as they say!!
     
  8. Many states issued a single plate,South Carolina is one. HRP

    Kansas has the same system, you can run a year of manufacture tag if it is in good condition. They put it in the system and no one else can use the same tag #. Run them on all my old cars.

    I refuse to toot my own horn, BUT, this thread has tons of CAR GUYS THAT RULE. This is what we do for fellow car guys. I was leaving a car show late at night. and saw a classic car on the side of the road pissing fuel from engine area. Pulled over and opened hood. fuel pump line leaking. Sunday night late and raining I got it to my shop and made the repair. and made a friend forever. He evened offered to pay. If you get stuck in northern Az, I will take care of CAR GUYS THAT RULE.

    IMG_0805.JPG Kentucky has to be the best state for YOM tags. No charge and you do not have to notify the state DMV what the numbers are on the YOM tag you are using. Two different cars could conceivably could run the same number YOM tag from a time when two tags were issued for one car. Not sure that was ever the case in Kentucky. The only YOM stipulation is you have to have the current state issued tag in the vehicle your running the YOM tag on.
    Several rodders from Louisville who I know, were instrumental in getting the current YOM regulations passed through the State Legislature.
    I've been running YOM tags for years and have never had a hiccup.
    ApparentlyKentucky Law Enforcement has more important issues to deal with then worrying about YOM tags. For once common sense applies.

    Alabama had two plates for many years, most of the front ones had the word FRONT on them, so it would be impossible to run one of those on the rear. We can run YOM plates IF the number sequence isn't already in use, which is always a possibility since they used the same numbering system for years, two people could have tags with the same number sequence but from different years, but only the first one to register his would be allowed to use it. They only require the rear one, even if originally there were two issued.

    I've got a 47 Al plate for mine, bought it from a local guy, it was nailed on the side of a chicken coop for years! Other than two nail holes, it's sound, but I've got to repaint it. I already had one that I bought off of eBay, but this one has the correct county number prefix on it, 32-. Got to get it painted up and go to the courthouse and make sure the number is valid, I figure it is, then it will go on the rear in place of the Vintage Vehicle tag on it now.

  19. In Maryland you NEED both tags, but in the war years they only issued one tag so only one is required for those years.
    Funny thing is, in '45 they started to stamp two tags then decided to just issue one and re-stamped the other tag a different number. I have one that has been stamped twice.
