CA Considering Rereleasing Old Plates

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...#slide=1038828

As someone who got pulled over for having a black replica plate, I'm rather excited about this news. CA is considering issuing black and yellow plates again, as well as the blue/yellow from the 70s.

As the article states,
Quote:
The DMV, however, will not establish the program unless it has received at least 7,500 paid applications for plates before January 1, 2014.
Who's with me?

Who's with me?

You were running a replica plate?
On the front?
A replica plate made with current license number?

I got a plate styled exactly like the CA 60s plates made with my actual plate characters. Apparently the issue is that it's not reflective enough No plates on the front (got a ticket for that too )

Got the plate from http://www.cr8apl8.com/

Here's a link to the bill:
http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/pub/11-12/...d_asm_v98.html

The answer: full refund if they don't get the 7500 applications. Off to go find that application now...

I think the bill needs to pass before the DMV posts an application.
