1928 New York State Motor Vehicle Registration Application Form

Recommended Posts

Car registration was evidently expensive in those days--

in New York at least, and probably in many other states.

Inflation has increased prices approximately 14-fold since then,

so the $17.50 annual registration for a car in 1928

equates to about $240 per year in today's money!


And if someone had a 5000-pound car, the annual charge

would have been $28.75 per year then--$400 in today's money.


Clearly, the good old days weren't always so good,

and I'd rather have today's modest registration charges!
