So there are some driving restrictions for these plates (at least in theory...) what is the cost savings of these as opposed to regular plates?

One time cost and no annual renewal. You'll not be driving it enough to worry about any restrictions either, I'm sure.

Depends on how long you are going to keep the car. I don't remember my details, but I think my plates and one time registration broke even on the second year. After that it's basically putting money back in my pocket. It was the same for my classic car insurance. The cost of appraisal paid back on insurance savings on years 2.

Holy Cow Jeff, it seems like the really nice pairs are now going on eBay for $200 and for $50 you get a single plate that's kind of beat up.
It's almost right out of an econ text book...$100 for a pair of beat up ones, $140 to pay for restoration...so good pairs are now $200-220.
If anyone has a nice pair they are interested in selling cheaper...

I don't think the state requires two plates on collector cars. They only issue one collector plate (rear). I only have one YOM plate. Am I illegal? That leaves a GREAT place for the club plaque .

Found plate

Only one required on the rear. I have the "Rainier Falcon" plate on the front of mine. Larry

Classic car plates issues from the state are only rear plates too if I recall correctly. Will need something on the front and that's a good excuse for the club plate.

As mentioned earlier, I'd still look for a pair if purchasing them - just to make sure you are not buying a single plate the mate of which is already in-use by someone else. Maybe find a pair where one that looks real good and the other is [perhaps more] mangled.

Yes, I will need to live in the back so I can afford the tuition.
Nice looking rig.
