Looks like Ohio has a one time fee that never expires... that's pretty cool.

Other than that I wouldn't worry about it.

I don't know the Ohio laws, I'll have to see if I can look it up... But I know that for Wisconsin, with the collectors plates (which may or may not be similar to Ohio historical plates) you cannot drive during the month of January unless you pay a fee... And cannot haul over 500 pounds.

Edit: Alright, after looking up what the historical plates are, I'd say contact the Ohio BMV as to the ramifications of driving the vehicle outside of the historical plate restrictions. According to their website, you can only use the plates if it's in relation to participation in club activities, exhibitions, tours, parades, etc. You can't just drive around on them for whatever you wish; and I'm sure that, after getting pulled over a few times, it's not going to be worth it.

Only use your car in parades?

Incredibly lame... at least Colorado has no limits... just 25 years old and pay for 5 years of registration at one time (used to be 7 years) but the big plus was you just had to pass emissions the FIRST time, after that you were done.

Which isn't a big deal in my area, I live in the boonies where there had NEVER been emissions testing.

Their historical is different from their collector. They do have a collector plate, but it seems it's limited in what vehicles can be considered collectors, and they have to renew the plates.

Wisconsin, you pay ~$300 once, and the plate is good for as long as you own the vehicle... You just have to pay $30 to drive the vehicle in the month of January each year. And, as I said earlier, you cannot haul over something like 500 pounds if it's a truck.

Well, when you're towing, it goes by tongue weight... So subtract the tongue weight from the 500 limit, that's what you can put in the bed.

Tees77f150 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
That is why I went with the regular registration. For a 1/2 ton class 2 truck it is $58.50 per year. The insurance cost me $6.36 per week.

For the antique, it was a one time $75, and $64 per year for insurance, but I couldn't live with the limitations. If I want to drive it after dark, I want to drive it! I plan on going to the drive in this year, and it will be well after dark, and I don't need to be bothered with those limitations.

And not that I plan on it, but you cannot haul anyhting.

@PoisonOilRacing
the best thing to do is go to your local dmv, or their website, and look up the answer. Illinois has all of their info on the website. $30.00 for 5 years for antique vehicle plates.
There are restrictions as to when you can legally drive the vehicle, parades, car shows, weekends, going to your mechanic, etc. I drove my '68 Beetle with antique plates every day and never got hassled. I just figured I would tell them I was on the way to my mechanic if I got stopped.

Regular Illinois plates are now $99. Out here by me there are alot of older vehicles being driven everyday with antique plates. No one I asked has ever been questioned. That is prolly what I'll do with my 78 250. I just can't see spending a hundo for a once and a while driver. JMO

Bullitt Colorado law changed on Sept 2009, Now must be a 1974 or older. No more 25 year rule. My 77 has them and will be grandfathered in but I was wanting them for my 86 Cj jeep but it was a year away from them before they changed the law. Thanks gov Ritter. grrrrrrrrrr

No Way! My dad is going to be pissed! He also has a 1986 Jeep CJ7 and has been waiting forever to get collectors plates.

He has owned the Jeep since it was brand spankin' new.

I see the plates are 1975 and older. 1976 and newer only if had pre-existing collectors plates.

I am going to dread the new registration fees. It was bad enough paying 5 years at once (used to be 7 years back in the day) but now it is going to be a 2nd mortgage.

MD has lax laws on historic plates. ANY vehicle that's over 20 model years old is eligible, including dump trucks, buses, etc...
