Prior to my ownership and rebuilding it to its current, early '50s period correct(?) configuration, my Roadster was "hot rodded" and last time registered for road use in 1952 in New York (I still have those plates and registration slip, which also doubled as "the title"). My initial idea almost 30 years ago was to register her with something similar, i.e. "period correct" '52-'53(?) CA plates, but since that option wasn't easily available and the somewhat unusual '32/YOM plate(s) I've been running for long time were gifted by a good friend soon after acquiring her, I managed to convince myself of their appearance and use being more "period correct" than any modern ones.
