    I cant find the government link, but its a simple form to fill out with a nominal fee. Here's a forum discussion on it http://www.forabodiesonly.com/mopar/...georgia.59128/

    Here are the rules for using vintage year of manufacture plates in Colorado:

    An original plate shall meet the following criteria in order to qualify for use of the plate:

    The plates were made at least thirty years prior to registration,
    The plates are embossed with the year of original issue,
    The plates are legible,
    The plates were issued contemporaneously with the year of manufacture of the vehicle upon which they are displayed and,
    The plates do not exceed seven characters.
    Your vehicle must have been manufactured at least thirty years prior to registration. It will first be required to have a regular registration issued, such as a Horseless Carriage, Collector, or Street Rod series license plate. The vehicle must be insured. The applicant must sign and date the declaration statement in form DR 2818. Also, please submit a photocopy of the license plate when applying.

    A quick count shows CO has 68 plate options beyond "standard" and "motorcycle", whereas GA has 236. TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTY SIX !!! All at extra cost

    Aha, but that 275 includes motorcycle plates. You have to add another 56 at least for GA for two wheelers.

    Nevertheless, a shocking number.

    Always surprised me that America doesn't permit the reselling of license plates/numbers like other countries like UK and Australia

    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"

    Wow. Yep, you guys win.

    VA also has the rule that allows you to use "year plates" if the year matches the year of manufacture. But I believe that's only for pre-1973 cars.

    We've also got "hybrid plates" which allow you to ride in the carpool lanes with no passengers (a huge deal around these parts!). There are a few versions of these plates, and the ones which grant the most privilege are allowed to stay with the owner and be transferred from hybrid to hybrid, but it can not convey with the sale of the car. These often end up on hybrid trucks getting 15mpg, while my old Civic VX which got 45mpg was ineligible.

    Interesting, never heard of that either. But yeah, if it looks like one of these below, it's not a look I'd like to have on my car. Would rather keep my personalized modern plate any day.

    Florida has the same rule but the bad news is that year specific plates ended in 1975.

    Wisconsin doesn't have the year plate rule, but if it did the plate would look like This:



    Issued from 80-86 and renewable up to 93.
