Exclamation California Residents - DMV Offering Vintage License Plates

Sorry if this has been posted before...

For California residents looking for "vintage" license plates for any old or new vehicle, the CA DMV has a new program going...

Figured I'd post this info again since so many people have never heard about it.

I'd like a few vintage Black California plates myself.

Here is some info for those interested...


Car Owners Get A Chance At Vintage California Plates

California Legacy License Plates Available for Pre-Order January 1, 2013


Sacramento –The California Department of Motor Vehicles announced today it will be taking pre-orders for a new License Plate Program offering vehicle owners the opportunity to purchase replicas of California license plate designs issued in the 1950's, 1960's, and 1970's.

The new program will bring a retro look to modern license plates by offering three classic license plate designs. Legacy License plates can be ordered for any year model automobile, commercial vehicle, motorcycle, or trailer. The styles include black lettering over a yellow background seen in the 1950's, yellow lettering over a black background seen in the 1960's and yellow lettering over a blue background that was available originally in the 1970's. The plates cost $50 for non-personalized or personalized plates.
A pre-order form California Legacy License Plate Pre-Order Form (REG 17L) is available at http://www.dmv.ca.gov/legacyplates/index.htm. The completed form and a $50 payment must be mailed to the address provided on the form. Payment can only be made by check, money order, or cashier's check. Pre-orders cannot be processed at DMV Field offices or Auto Club offices.
The law specifies that 7,500 applications must be reached by January 1, 2015. If 7,500 applications are not received by that date, any fees paid for the California Legacy plates will be refunded to the applicant.
Governor Brown signed Assembly Bill (AB) 1658, by Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D–Los Angeles) on September 28, 2012.

Bumping this thread.

Looks like we are getting closer. The 1960s black/gold plate has over 5700 pre-orders, but one plate needs 7500 pre-orders by Jan 1, 2015 for the entire program to be implemented.

I think any of these three options are better than the existing plate, so if you'd like to put one of these 1950s, 1960s or 1970s Cali plates on your Porsche, be sure to get your pre-order in before Jan 1, 2015.

I grew up with the 1970s blue/gold look, which I kinda miss, but I think the 1960s black/gold look would look bad *** on my 2000-era silver Porsche.

More info here: http://www.dmv.ca.gov/legacyplates/index.htm

So Cali owners, if you are interested, get your pre-order in today!

Not all colors were approved. I got a refund as the yellow ones I believe they did not get enough orders for.

Does anyone know if they'll give the other two colors a shot?

It's ironic all our new cars have black and yellow and only my '55 has a modern plate

No but if you really want a period correct plate, go buy an original off ebay and then register it to your car. Its what I did for a 62 bug.
