    I don't redo plates except sometimes sand blast and primer to preserve them...My collector friend passed away a few years back so I do't have a very good sourse anymore...He would go to the huge convention meets and bring back several hundred plates to trade...He had the 2nd biggest collection in the state of Washington at the time...40.000 plus !...Word is that his widow gave his collection away...Of course thirty-forty years ago the older stuff was more plentiful .....I'm sure I traded some that today are worth big $$$$....I sell on occasion restorable/repaintable to the right party......Heres a sort of rare one...

    The '67 plate I am saving for my Ranchero won't actually be "restored" , I am going to paint it the same color as the car, do the letters in white, and replace the picture of Mt. Rushmore with a Blue Oval decal. When spring comes I am going to get out to my Grandpa's old farm and do some scouting in my goodies stored there. If I find any nice old tags I'll keep you in mind.

    Dave, not all states have YOM (Year of Manufacturer) laws. I may be wrong, but I didn't think South Dakota allows vintage plates on older vehicles. They do issue 'Historical Vehicle' license plates for vehicles over 30 years old.

    Another thing to keep in mind, some states require a plate used on the car be original, restored to original (hard with Mount Rushmore), or require some form of reflectorization as original.

    I'm not going to say I know South Dakota law, but I'd double check with your DMV to see if what you are planning is legal. If this is just for show display, no big deal, but for highway use, make sure you're just not inviting the police to write you tickets.

    Andy.....I would say 1930 Idaho is kinda rare considering that there must not have been that many dealerships in Idaho then...Well compared to today anyways....Bill Gates Ville..er....Washington State DMV stopped issuing dealer yearly plates about thirty years ago...They started issuing stickers so the dealers don't let go of them anymore...I used to find their expired plates in their bodyshops...The guys used them to spread bondo.!!....Out of all the dealer plates I have collected.(numerous) this 67 is the only unused I have ever had...It sold today for $75.00....The tip off for unused is there are no marks on the mounting holes and no evidence of a touch up fraud deal...You will find fraud in plate collecting...Buyer beware !!...

    Swifster, naw, it won't be a legal plate by any means, just for shows and maybe a bit of local cruising. I live in a small town and know all the cops, as long as it is correctly registered and the real plate is under the seat or something I don't think the locals will care..... I have a personalized plate, legal type, that I have been making my anuual payment on for years, will probably be the legal plate for it. In South Dakota we keep our personalized plates, then pay to transfer them from car to car. Good system.....

    Dave, at first I would have guessed your personalized plate would have said something like FORD MAN, but then after reading your reply to califgrrll on the other thread I now think PRNC o DKNS would be more appropriate.

    Naw, my mind doesn't work near that good, Bob. My South Dakota plate (reserved for certain cars only) dates back to 1976 when they started the program. It's-- FAST 1. Jackie had one on here '69 Z-28 for a few years, -- U WISH. Still pay the bill every year to keep them both.

    Hey Inline...

    I aksed before about a '50 CA plate, but that was before I became edjumacated.

    I guess what I'm really looking for is a '47 CA plate and the '50 corner tags.

    Have anything like that?

    Thanks,
