Out of interest (I'm a Brit) how many mpg do you get out of that?

Convention car... Interesting license plate. I guess it gives you a limited amount of mileage you can drive, or something along those lines? Maybe a different registration?

No...not sure what it is..just an actual "real"1966 Florida license plate. I also have a real Florida license plate for the rear but with numbers and letters...if you can find a real old plate the year of your car, you can re-register the plate to your classic car...plate has to be unpainted and in original and great condition. Nice and unique touch for a classic car.

That cool. I had to turn in my old California plates for my project car in order to re-register it... Couldn't keep the old plates at all!

As far as I knew, CA has the program too...to keep your original "black" plates on your cars...the program in FL and everywhere else is called YOM which stands for Year of Manufacture license plate program

I asked DMV about it when I did it, and they said I couldn't keep them. I think the fact one of them was bent in half and almost completely destroyed was part of the problem...

But its OK, the "new" white plates will match my car better when I get them :p

when you say your car...you mean the Lexus or an old classic car? The plates in Florida were stamped in the metal with the year...the plate can only be registered to a car manufactured in the year on the plate...and, it only works on all old cars thru 1975...each year, back then in FL you were issued a whole new metal license plate....nowadays, you just get a new sticker for your current plate.

Here's a pic of the YOM plate on my car...even has a "66" number in the tag # for my year...purely coincidental...also, we have a guy in our neighborhood who has this really cool original (he says) Batmobile from the TV series in the mid 60's
