You do have to give up your white plates, but you keep your black/yellow plates but you cannot install them. In the meantime they give you the "red/pink paper window tag" to live with and look at for a few months or more... That becomes your temporary license. Unfortunately, they only allowed 2 months on mine, which of course was not enough. If the car actually ran, I would have had to make another annoying trip to the DMV to extend the red/pink paper tag for a few more months. So, lesson learned. Ask for a 4 month period on the red/pink paper tag up front--maybe they'll give it to you.

But bring the black plates with you to Knotts and put 'em on the car there.

I gave up a set of blue/yellow plates. I ended up extending the temp reg 3 times (!).
I like Franks idea...put the black plates on at Knotts.

ok. got to find them.

I'll post a pic of them once I locate them! One of them had some dent damage on it and I believe I may have to re-paint it to 'pass muster' with the DMV. I'll post some time later this week when I have time to rifle through the garage....

I didn't have to give up my white plates when I went into the DMV for the YOM plates. I asked them about turning 'em in and they told me no. I even called the DMV and they ran a query on my plates and told me that they were still valid.

I guess I just got lucky that I didn't have to run the red tag, before getting my approval.

The only consistency here is the inconsistency...

located the plates last night. I have scaped the MONTH sticker are down to 1964 (and will remove that). I will also scrape down the YEAR area to 1965 year.

I am thinking to get the front plate restored and then bring both to the DMV and have the paperwork started. Then have the rear plate restored once I get the process completed.

Do you think the 'bare' area near the bottom of the rear plate will cause the DMV to 'confiscate' them?

rear plate, back side

Your rear plate is fine. You're right about the front plate, though.

I just discovered something very interesting. The following is from the DMV law re: the YOM program:

"Automobiles with model years from 1963 through 1969 must utilize license plates displaying a black background with yellow characters within the alpha-numeric series of AAA000 through YYY999."

This means that, officially, the Z series plates are NOT eligible for YOM registration!

There's also a paragraph referring to commercial (truck) plates that says the configuration must be A 00000 through Z 99999, which means the configuration introduced in 1967 which puts the letter at the end does not qualify.
