Mine back & front!
some Owls I have hanging around ! LOL
Made a spark plug topper..our club is the Retarded Sparks....
Only one of these I've seen...
A few from the back wall:
Just got this one. I don't have a '32 (yet) so for now it's art on the kitchen wall.
YOM plate on my '32. Wifey took the pic and unfortunately cropped off the original Day-Glo Masonic topper...
Here's the unrestored one on my 26, and and another unrestored original that will go on my 32 if I ever get it done. Already have it registered under this plate.
You can check out some of our's on the website,click the Facebook Link as well..
We restored the "Sierra Madre" topper on page one.
I have a very nice 1932 South Carolina original tag for the 3W ... I just have not went and got it registered legal like.
Interesting plates/topper from me
The '56 Penna. tag and topper were on my Plymouth coupe when it was parked in Sept. '56. The '36 Ohio year of manufacture plates are now on the car along with this Keystone topper that was in a box in the trunk. The '32 Ohio yom plate is unrestored.
here is my personal plate and topper
Here's a cool one on my Vette...I get more ???'s on it than the car !!
A couple of my more interesting ones:
The Vv plates are WW1 vets plates supposedly, and I've found no information on the soap box derby plate.
Surprised no one has posted this one....google it, interesting history
Just a few quick ones.
I've got one of those too. It's not aluminum though. Didn't know they made them any other way?
Here's my Arizona YOM plates for the '57 Windowed Delivery and the '49 Fleetline. The 49 plate is cool as it is waffled aluminum, something several states did with their aluminum plates to keep them from bending so easily. Of course, you know what the toppers are. And I'm looking for a distinctive frame that fits the '49 plate, but they are tough to find in that size.
A friend gave me this '52 Plate a couple of years ago.
And this '58 High Point NC tax strip plate was in my glovebox when I got my car. There were some pay stubs in there too for "Max Calloway" (If I remember correctly) from the late 50's - early 60's in High Point also. I checked with the DMV awhile back and the only record showing prior to me was in Alabama in the early 2000's.
I have another 1958 High Point plate in near mint shape, but no pics of it at the moment though.
Here's the plate on my Austin:
Just a couple of mine.
Hey Bruce, your tags are expired!!
Found this at a junk yard. It matches my 64 Indiana plate for my cyclone.
