When the time comes when I part with my car, my desire is to get it back to CA and into the hands of someone who will properly care for it. I still have the original black plates and have thought that it would be great for the next owner to get the plates back on the car officially through DMV. I am glad to hear that the YOM plates are being accepted for use, but like previously mentioned, I hope my letter/number combination doesn't get issued before hand.
I was wondering if I could pay a minimal fee to have it reserved for future use.
I am in NY state and as soon as I registered the car, I had the plates special made to match the CA plates, but I keep the NY plates locked IN the car and continue to display the CA plates ON the car. So far I have not been stopped by the police, but then the car only goes out only 2 or 3 times a year so there is little chance of it happening.
