    A new law was enacted in 2012 to establish the California Legacy License Plate Program. The plates have been available for pre-order, and cost $50 for non-personalized or personalized plates.

    Consumers may choose from one of three classic designs from the ’50s–’60s. However, the law only allows until January 1, 2015, to reach the required minimum 7,500 pre-orders for any one of the plate styles. Currently, none of the plates have reached the required number of applications.

    Black lettering on yellow background: 1,213 applications received
    Yellow lettering on black background: 4,224 applications received
    Yellow lettering on blue background: 901 applications received

    If 7,500 applications are not received by January 1, 2015, any fees paid for the California Legacy plates will be refunded to the applicant.

    if they don't emboss the word "California", not interested.
  3. they are, from what I have been told going to be painted (not embossed) and reflective paint material in "similar" colors to the originals.

    This program has made it a nightmare to try to retain original black and gold plates if the car isn't currently registered.
