Wonder what they will do for numbering the plates?
Old plates but the current use of numbers or numbers from the era?
That was my thought. I'm lucky enough to have the original black plates on my car. If I didn't, and was going to buy these, I would want the numbering the way they were back in the day. The problem with that is if they issue an old number, and then some guy goes through a restoration, tries to register his plates, only to find that they have been assigned to these new plates. We'll have to wait and see.
can't you take orginal 60's plates and use them? in TX we can.. i found my 1968 plates "HEMISFAIR" and registered them.. i found this out when i went to register the stang and asked about classic plates and the lady told me i could find plates from 68 and use them as long as the plate number was not used already and they of course would have to be clean and not missing paint.. they look at them before too....
