"Vehicles displaying these plates may only be driven to and from an antique auto show or exhibition, service station or demonstration. The mechanical and physical condition of the vehicle, including brakes, lights, glass and appearance, must be the same or as safe as originally equipped. An antique vehicle may be a "bona fide replica" - an exact copy of the original in design, frame and mechanical operation. "Facsimiles" - close, but not exact, reproductions of the original - do not qualify for Antique Vehicle plates."
Dang, plenty of people around here run AV plates and drive their cars around all the time.. I guess they are lucky enough not to get caught. Those plates are soo cheap that I would almost take the risk of running them, I'd just say "I'm headed to the gas station"
