Re: [T3] Registrations (NY)

Twice a year!  In the fall I take the RX7 and Square off and put the golf
on, and vice versa in the spring.  I leave the notch on all year as it has
antique insurance which is dirt cheap.

Take the plates in to DMV, they give you a receipt or credit if your reg
will still be good beyond the spring so you just get new plates in the
spring... costs a buck or 2 each time unless its time to renew the reg.
inspection is good for a year no matter what you do with the car.  I know
last summer I saved $220 by getting the Golf off the road for the summer.
You may want to keep comprehensive coverage on your car though incase there
is a fire or vandalism etc.... but you usually need it garaged to do that.
