Temporary License Plate

Hi all. As always I am trying to find legal ways to register old vehicles with little hassle. So there's this guy I see about every 2 weeks at work, and he sells rebuilt cars. He has a license plate that says "NEW JERSEY TEMPORARY R-L" on it (it's a real, aluminum plate, I'm not talking about the paper ones). He said it's his friend's, and is like a dealer plate but the cops don't bother him because they dont know what the hell it is. I understand it's issued to rental fleets to facilitate movement of untitled cars. It sounds like it's exactly the kind of plate I'm looking for, but the problem is I have no idea how to get one. NJMVC website says nothing about it, and three hours of Googling turns up only results about temporary registrations, which are an entirely different thing with a similar name. Does anyone have one of these plates, or know who I could talk to to find out how to get one? I doubt very much the MVC people would have any idea what I was talking about if I called them.

Good point. Like I said, it was an aluminum plate of the same construction and format of a regular license plate, but there's no saying someone had their incarcerated friend make it up. That being said, I have found some obscure historical references to it at various points in time, so I'm fairly confident that legitimate ones can be had. Also, I see plates of the type in question once in a blue moon, and with cameras mounted on the back of police cars these days I don't think so many people could get away with having invalid plates.

This registration type is so uncommon though, that most anyone I've asked so far has no friggin clue what the hell I'm talking about. The only folks who know anything about it are people with experience in movie production, where apparently these plates are used frequently to drive cars used in movie scenes.
