What kind of head do you have under that hood? Is that an air cleaner I see sticking out of the side or a big old Carburetor? That is a very cool Model T Ford. Dandy Dave!

In Oregon YOM gets permanent registration. As do the 'Special Interest' plates that are butt ugly yellow issued by the DMV if one doesn't have or doesn't want YOM.

I have owned one of my cars almost 40 years, no tag fees, inspections or smog.

I have several cars this way, works for me.

Hot rods included.

Here's the plate for my 28' Whippet

On my 1965 Buick Electra 225

I was able to find the key chain tags for this car. I can remember my Mom and my uncle having these tags in the 60's

I think the registration expires in 2050....or something like that. And I have to carry the antique  car plates with me too.

Cool thread, and not to hijack it, but want to sound a warning to fellow AACA members. There are TONS of fake license plates being peddled out there, especially on fleapay. Assume any porcelain plate is fake, unless you know how to spot the fraudulent ones. Buy only from reputable sellers who guarantee the plate(s) and or make sure you examine lots of photographs of the plate(s) before buying. Sellers who have gotten taken also are reselling them with BS stories attached. Unscrupulous sellers are pushing their worthless junk out of Tennessee but it is ending up everywhere.

I cracked up when I got to this post. I bought my license tag on fleabay from... you guessed it Tennessee! But it’s fun, goes well with the 30’s car and Washington is one of the least churched states too. I was following a fleabay Roosevelt/Garner tag from 1936. Perfect, right? Except it got bid up to $500! 
Took the car to the biggest show in Seattle, and the Times newspaper put a photo of JUST the plate. Forget the car! Loved it.

That plate looks terrific to me, Snohomish County too, to go with your Everett license frame. Do you suspect it is a reproduction?

Suppose it is a reproduction.  So freaking what?  My aluminum pistons are reproductions.  The Kevlar bands in my model T are reproductions.  The slide valves, pilot light, boiler and burner in my Stanley are reproductions.  If I were collecting license plates, I'd probably care whether what I was buying was a reproduction, especially if I was paying premium bucks.  But if I wanted something authentic-looking on the back of my old car, a well-made reproduction would be just fine.

 

Since NJ doesn't allow OEM plates, this discussion is academic to me.  But it seems silly, nonetheless.

The license plate is genuine, so is the frame. You can zoom in on the frame and see the pickling in the chrome. It’s the license topper that I’m not sure about. But like I said, so what, it’s all in good fun.

It was surprisingly painless to get the title and YOM plates in CT.  I do have to carry the antique plates they issue in the car but that's no big deal.

Just yesterday I bought/brought home a stalled restoration project that was already licensed YOM in Minnesota.

 Same here in PA. I just run a YOM plate on my 39 PU with out bothering to regi$ter it. I do have a legal antique plate for it I keep in the glove box. If I'm ever stopped I'll say I forgot to take it off after a show. Hey: I'm old. I'm confused................Bob

  What you are doing is the law of the land here in North Carolina.   Beats the way it was done in Florida where we has=d to send unrestored YOM tags to the 

  state for certification, then pay a fee for it.  With cars registered in both states, I like the NC law better.

As long as I've been around Florida has always used a granular reflective paint on the plates. The DMV only allows unused original plates. Used to be a pile at every flea market. Have several but no 4W.

Here in N.C. we get a brand new regular plate just like every other Joe. You can put any plate on your car as long as the agency issued plate is somewhere in the car. It doesn't have to be displayed. Have never got stopped in either car.

Here are a couple of mine.  Black & yellow plate is on my '67 Volvo 122S, the other on my '73 Chevrolet Impala. One nice thing about California is that as long as you keep your registration current, you can keep the same plates on the vehicle, these plates are the originals. Also just realized that the license frames have the manufacturer's logos on them, that's seldom seen on newer frame designs.

One time registration in Washington pretty much mirrors that of Oregon. I have ten cars so licensed.

 

A question how many have on the car the original plate that the car was first registered with?

Do the same thing (also in PA) however I have a set of strong magnets with a felt covering glued to the back of the legal purple antique plate. I can get it on and off of the YOM plate quickly and it has never had an issue coming off while driving. Unfortunately I typically take the car out and forget to bring or put the antique plate on. Probably would be an interesting point of discussion with the officer.

Only if you introduced yourself as Clyde Barrow and told him you were about to rob a bank!

I am getting there - new stainless license plate bolts turned down, license jewels, and period adjustable chrome frames.
