License plate thread

I have seen a lot of good plates on the FAQ, but I have not seen them collected in one place. I know a lot of people could care less,  but I like to see them. What do people have:  year of manufacturer, historic, antique, vanity plates?   I have a YOM plate on my ‘74. I think it goes well with my Granatrot  paint. You do not have to display the annual registration sticker so long as it is kept somewhere in the vehicle.   $50 fee per year.  If you find a plate that does not match a current registration, the RMV will approve it. Pretty easy to do as back in the 70s the plates were all numbers, now they are alpha numeric. License plate trivia:  Massachusetts was the first state to issue license plates, back in 1903. Plate number 1 is still held by the family of the original holder (you cannot transfer a plate for a profit, only to a family member).

I have the same passion, I love the original and YOM plates and original plate frames.

 

YOM on the e9 and NK, original on the 02 and e12 and 2800.

Don't have all my plates nearby to photograph but...

 

For many years I had "MS 2002" and "2002 MS" on my two cars; always wanted to swap front plates and see if anyone ever noticed...

 

Then in the year 2002, I got "AN 02402"--it only made sense for that year, so in 2003 I got "E-114".  That was until I read Jackie Jouret's new book and discovered the factory referred to the original 2 door body as a Type 114, so I changed my plate this year to "TP 114."

 

Ohio has YOM plates too, so I'm still looking for a 1969 Ohio plate with 2002 on it.  I have 2001, 2006 and 2009, but not the elusive 2002.  However, I do have a 1948 Florida plate from Escambia county (county #9 in the old Florida county numbering system) that's "9-2002"...

PS--my beater E21 many years ago had "NO 02"--and people thought I had a nitrous-oxide bottle on board...

My '76 proudly displays "BMW CCA" on the rear only in PA.  It's been on there for over 20 years now.
