Re: [T3] Old Cali Plates



Original question (with more data...)

o My '69 Squareback lived in L.A. & had black & gold plates when I bought
it in 1997.  (Curiously, the plates have "63" stamped in the upper right,
so they were probably off an older car before appearing on the '69 --
which I bought from the first owner.  These plates were presumably on the
car for its first 29 years.)

o It's been in Michigan, registered in Michigan, with Mic╚Řptle &
plates for the past two years.

o I just moved back to California, and need to register it here.  I would
like to reinstall the black & gold plates that I removed from it two years
ago.

	Apparently, the best I can do is walk into the DMV with the old
plates, the current MI reg & title, and perhaps an old California
registration and beg for mercy.  Thom Fitzpatrick believes, though, that I
haven't got a chance since the plates are actually too old to have been
correct when the car was new.  I won't draw attention to the "63" stamped
in the plates.

	This may just end up being my opportunity to buy modern vanity
plates.  Oh well.  (What do vanity plates cost?)
