  • Historic Plates

    Will anyone else be running historic plates on their baby soon? Since mine turns 20 in December I can start running historic plates here in MD come January '08.

    Cheers!

      We are 25 years for Street Rod tags... "an extensively remanufactured vehicle different for the manufactures original specifications." This opens up the mod-sheet and my wallet when 25 years comes.

      As long as I am pretty much stock for the most part I qualify for Historic status. This means no more inspections which is not a big deal since the car is properly maintained in that regard. But it also means no more emissions. One less opportunity for any once to screw up the ride!!! I mention that because the inspection tech could not get my car into the proper gear during the tread mill test. Then he put it in reverse and almost backed into the next car waiting for the treadmill!!! Nice!!! One less issue I have to deal with.

        I have collector plates on the M3 Cabrio. I've had them now for two years.
        In Canada it's 5 years unless your car is limited production...less than 1500 made world wide...and still in original condition. You also have to get a letter of authenticity from the manufacturer stating the number made by them and all number on the car must match.
        Really cheap insurance

                The MD Historics are regular old black and white. The plates on my car now are the "Our Farms are Our Future" plates which fade from white to orange, kind of an autumn dusk feel with black lettering.

                Registration costs drops considerably though to $51.00. If memory serves me correct it is a one time fee. So no more $128.00 every two years and $14.00 every two years for emissions.

                  or with the yellow one since those ended in 86'

                    That's exactly what i am going to do! Vintage plates FTW. I have them for my 67 Austin Healey. The tough part is finding a pair. You can not register vintage plates in NY unless you have both.

                        I forgot all about that. I think I can run vintage plates in MD. I am going to look into it.

                          That's a great idea... I hadn't thought about historic tags in a while. I'm in MD, so my '88 will be eligible in January too. I was hoping it would be 20 years from the build date, which would bump it up to this June, but it's the model year.

                          The $51 is still every 2 years. If your car is 60 years or older, then it's a 1-time fee. Still way better than $128 plus emissions.

                          Does anyone know what the MD historic tags look like? I couldn't find a picture.

                              Mark - I think the historic plates for us are the regular black and whites. it still says Maryland at the top of the tag and instead of the web address on the newer black and whites it just states Historic.

                              I am going to look at what the tag design was in '88 and see if I can source a set of those if they are not f-ugly other wise I will do the regular historics. I am not to much on personalized plates but you can get the historics that way for some extra cash-ola.
