How to Get Antique License Plates for Your Classic Car
Collectible Virginia License Plates | eBay
If you recently bought or already own a classic car, you may be considering putting specialty license plates on it. Depending on where you live, these license plates may be referred to as collector, classic, vintage, historic or antique plates. The first thing you have to do is make sure your car actually qualifies for the license plates. Again, these vary from one state to the next. Usually, the magic number for cars to reach this designation is 25 years. Some states, though, allow cars to be classified as antique or classic in just 20 years, while others require it to be older. In Florida, for example, vehicles must be at least 30 years old to qualify for antique or historic designation.

We think there's nothing more "authentic-looking" than a fully restored classic car that's sporting license plates from the year of its manufacture. They make the car look more original roadworthy, if you will than those "antique vehicle" or "historic vehicle" tags seen on so many old cars. Frankly, we think the antique plates look a bit depressing.
