Solid copper and original paint. Just need a 32 to go with it.
Redo of plate from early 80's. Plate in family since new in '56
I have a few & will be selling a couple when I get back from LARS. T B D L
The 32 has Y O M & I got rid of those taillights. Man I hated those.
The copper plate is going on the 34 roadster & I need to paint it.
The yellow 34 coupe also has Y O M on it.
found this one at the GNRS 2014
My YOM, I paid a pretty penny for them but I couldn't see finding any better number. Now if I could just get the car done.
I've run them on every old car owned... Washington has let you do it for a while... With
some exceptions (wink wink)
I've gotten better at restoring old plates. My first turned out rather "farmer". My current makes me proud. I'm waiting for Minnesota to approve it. I'll run it even if they don't!
My goal is to find the YOM AND correct county prefix for my 26 Roadster
I have 1960 YOM plates on my car in Texas. It is not registered as an antique. The lady at the DMV told me to hang on to them because the law was going to change soon, and in the future you would have to register as an antique, and would have to use the crappy antique plates -which are white, with blue and have a picture of an antique car on them. She told me if I did not register my car as an antique, and went and got the yearly inspection, I could keep them as a "grandfathered" clause type of deal. Since I am not registered as an antique, there are no restrictions from the state on driving. She may be full of crap, but you may want to check it out.
Having the antique plates lets you register only every 5 years, but has restrictions on driving -which you can probably ignore, but it will be hard to ignore your crappy plates!
From an insureance perspective, Hagerty, just expects me to drive less than what I tell them -which is 5k miles.
Here is part of my collection ,They are all pairs, most were used as shingles on a barn in the central valley of California
I run a 1941 plate on my car.... it looks like it's from 1941. It drives a lot of '32 owners batty that I pulled my '32 plates off. Oh well.
Plates for my 35 Chevy phaeton and 46 Olds sedanette, matching sets. Another set of matching plates that I sold a while ago and 2 x NOS never issued plates
Anutter 1 of mine
I've got a 56, because I was born there in '56
I also run a 30 Oklahoma tag with an antique (40's) Tag surround that says Sanders Motor Company, that I got from Tommy here on the H.A.M.B. Thanks Tommy.

Check http://www.nummernschildmuseum.de/ - they might have an old allied forces plate for sale. I've got some myself, but not the style shown on your picture.
or if you're "on a mission"
My 1955 GA plate.
Migic year, they need a new home, and I need Roadster money. Bob
I wouldn't think of running a "modern" plate, just wouldn't look right. Not that hard or expensive to do it right.
1934 Texas Commercial Plate on my dad's 34' delivery....
Posted using the Mildly Custom H.A.M.B. App!
Colorado skipped stamping a 61 plate, an used a 60 with a special sticker. Seem is the only year tha skipped until the late 70's DMV let me get away with a sticker version. Throws people for a loop if they know my 61 and see the 60 plate.
In South Carolina we have the YOM plate but you can't run non YOM plates.
Example...you can not run a 50 tag on a 31 Model A. HRP
I've been collecting 30s and 40s plates for years.
[QUOTEI have some from Knoxville, TN similar to these withdates '53,'56,'59 maybe only issued every third year
="Nick32vic, post: 10430443, member: 1511"]Picked up these at a swap meet a couple weeks ago.
I'm happy that my YOM plates stayed with the '46 after selling it & then buying it back! Gonna go to the AAA and do the title & registration today, in fact.
Here's a cool trio from the Land of Enchantment!
I always thought it was interesting they couldn't spell out ILLINOIS and would put ILL on their plates like everyone was sick.
Let's see em!
