Oregon will allow it, as long as they are not officially being used on another vehicle. This can happen when you only have one plate. They do charge you for the privilege.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Every state is different and many aren't on board with the YOM yet. In my state, you check at the local dmv to see if the number is not in use first. Once that number is used, in any year, then it can't be used again.

Here's the deal on YOM tags in Ohio. They can be used, but only on a historical registration. This obviously limits your driving privileges in accordance with those guidelines. If you still want to do it, you must bring in the YOM tag with you to the BMV when you get your historical registration. They will inspect the plate, then attach that number to the reg. You will also still receive a regular Ohio historical tag, which you must the keep in the vehicle at all times.

Missouri will allow them as long as they have been out of circulation for a consecutive 3 years in a row.
Don't even have a sticker on them, ya don't have any historical tags to deal with and ya don't have to keep track of mileage anymore.

Yes, ours are the same restrictions as historical but the rules are pretty vague, like "special occasions" About the only way you would ever get popped is driving it to work and parking it on the street or someplace the cops see it every day. Last I knew, there had never been a citation written in Texas for mis using a YOM registration. I drive my 59 F250 as a daily driver with YOM

All it takes is a cop with an attitude. There has been at least one written in Ohio - Ask me how I know.

I figure he would have to prove I wasn't meeting with the car club, getting gas, going to wash it, going to the parts store to get parts, all reasons you can drive.... I've had them on the 29 for years, cops all wave.

In Illinois 1st you get Expanded-Use Antique License Plates. April to October o restrictions on driving. Nov. to March only to shows, taking it to a shop, or to storage.

With that plate, you can now have a YOM plate on you car, as long as you keep the Expanded-Use Antique License Plates in the car for inspection by LEOs. Only the Expanded-Use Antique License Plates are registered and in the system. Our YOM plates are not.

I keep a copy of the statue with my Antigue Plates just incase the Office might not be aware of the Law.
