on a silver 73/74 Pinto wagon (too bad we can't swap plates between cars in CA). The Pinto was on a side street in front of a kind of run-down apartment complex in Folsom, CA today.

You sell your tii to the owner of the pinto. They swap the plate on to the tii. They then sell the tii back to you and relinquish the personalized plates to you. The whole thing costs about $40 to do. Worth it, I think.

Probably cost more than $40 to have it hauled off.

Just kidding, no offense to Pinto fanatics here on the FAQ.

issue plate - the Pinto wagon just happened to be next in line when 002 TII was issued.........

California's "Year Of Manufacture" (YOM) license plate program will allow a set of plates that being issued in the same year your "vintage" car was manufactured to be assigned to the car, but it only applies to license plate series that are no longer in active circulation (i.e., plates issued BEFORE the well known black with yellow letters plates first issued in 1962-63 came out).

Since the black plates first issued in 1962-63 and the blue plates first issued in 1968-69 were never withdrawn by the CA DMV, they're considered to still be in active circulation. As far as I've been able to determine, you can't get ANY active series plates reassigned to a vehicle, even if you have documentation proving they were the original plates issued when that vehicle was new.
