Yeah, been waiting for this for a long time. About 45 states allow this and PA is late to the party, as usual. I still have my original tag from my first car - a '52 Chevy, so hoping I can get it registered to one of my old cars. Unfortunately the process may not be implemented for at least 120 days.

The way I read it, the plate has to be from the year of manufacture of the vehicle, no later than 1975.
I would have liked to do this to my Camino, but it's too new.

That's the way the law works in North Carolina. You would think it would cut down on the "What year is that?" questions, but it doesn't.

Very cool, Texas allows that, although sometime in the 70's they stopped issuing license plates with the Year printed on them.
Gots a YOM on my '56 (see sig block). I THINK that you can use the correct color plates with the expiration month/year sticker on the plate. I won't guarantee that, tho.

This year when my registration comes up I'll register my 66 Texas truck tags, black w/white lettering, on my old beater

Do you still have a 52 model car to put that plate on?

No - but right now the new law is a bit vague on how it is going to work. My old Chevy plate has a 1963 registration sticker on it and I am hoping that will qualify to put it on my 1963 Corvair Spyder. Need to go check on what year is stamped on the plate. It may be 1958. Not sure when PA stopped issuing a new plate each and every year or when they went to issuing year stickers. Also need to check on when PA stopped using two license plates and how that will affect how many YOM tags a person will have to search for. Right now I assume we will only need one.

A word of caution, check with your state's DMV before you buy any YOM plates to make sure the plate configuration isn't currently being used. If it is you won't be permitted to use it

Chris, street rod FL tags are for homemade and modified cars like 32 Deuce Coupes; horseless carriage tags are for Model T types of cars.

Don't we all get tired of that? Even if you put a sign in the window, they'd still ask,... :yell: George

H.B. 1203 was signed by Governor Corbett on April 12, 2012. The law will go into effect in 120 days which should be August 12 or so. Need to wait and see what info PennDOT will provide. :nanawrench:
