Does your classic have a personalized license plate ?

Recommended Posts

In 1973 I bought my 1953 Pontiac Chieftain Custom Catalina from the original owners, in 1977 I was awarded my first choice for a personalized California license plate, PONTIAC.

We can’t get personalized plates on collectors car registration (US$60 for 45 days including injury insurance)

 

One of the last things I worked on was on our states personalised plates website, https://vplates.com.au/browse-styles 

 

whats good is that we have different size plates to fit euro, Japanese or us cars

As in Victoria(above) neither can New South Wales use personalized plates on collector car registration (about US$30 for 60 days use over 365 days including injury insurance). However, before that scheme came into force(NSW was running behind Vic & SA), I registered my PREVIOUS Packards on "full registration" and did put personalized on them, see photos.

I don't have the Roadmaster anymore, but the plate was appropriate.

 

I am undecided on one the the BMW, either technology or heritage.

I don't typically like vanity plates, but I bought this one for Melanie's '56 Chrysler wagon and she loves it:

Personalized plates are available here in Ontario,but not on historic vehicle plates.I would be unable to tow my car trailer with my '72 Chevy truck if it was running historic plates, so I pay full pop ($120 yearly) for regular plates.Historic plates here are $18 yearly.

I have "Year of Manufacture" plates on my cars. 1946 was a one plate year in New York because of a war shortage of steel, so I don't need to run a front plate. It takes the look of the car back to 1946 without a modern plate.

I saw this on Facebook last week and thought it was very clever using an "image-in-the-mirror" appearance like an ambulance:

Interestingly enough, that's an actual-size example of the only person who can fit comfortably in a 2-seat Thunderbird.

I only did that once, still have the plate but the car is long gone. I don't keep my cars long enough to worry about it.

How's this for confusing the lineage, heritage, source, etc?

This personalized Antique plate served until it was transferred to the 1937 Roadmaster Phaeton (Convertible Sedan) 80C,

and the "TOURING" plate was tranferred to the '88 'Vette-

The "TOUR" plate went to the 1930 Packard,

the "AACA" plate is now on the 1915 Hudson,

with the "AACA 1" plate on the 2006 8.1L 2500 Series Avalanche

 

The '41 Caddy has "5050", because everything we've done for the past 50 years of marriage has been 50-50,

The 54CADDY on the 1954 is self-explanatory -

The Suburban and EXcursion have "MARTY" and MARTY  R",

and the '95 Grand Marquis and Fleetwood Brougham have "DALE" and "4DALE"-

they aren't eligible for Antique tags until next year

 

At least we can find our cars in a parking lot😏
