Hey, if you are getting a rate that only allows you to drive to special functions, you are commiting fraud if you use it other times.

I pay extra to use my vehicles for my business. What ever happened to being honest instead of just trying to screw anyone you can.

helrazr3 in mass you can use year of manufacture plates, which means i can use mass. plates from 1966 for my car. you can drive it like any other car as long as you have the proper insurance.

Hod Rod plates would be Cool!

I sometimes run to the store in mine, if I did get stopped, I could always use the "I'm on a test drive" excuse.

just another car guy here you can either get "antique vehicle" plates, just regular plates with a AQ on them or Special Interest plates "SP" but are supposed to only go to shows or parades, club functions, etc. I know someone that got pulled over & asked where they were going & the cop CALLED to see if there was actually a show there.. nice huh ? Only good thing is that pre '75 vehicles don't have to be smogged here

Meangreen I got antique tags on my 71 chevelle. The only real difference that i notice is that i dont ever have to buy them again. I can driv eit as much as i want and still have to take stupid inspection sticker test things.

just another car guy Do you mean acutal old plates that you got from a swap meet or regular plates that say "antique vehicle" on them.
Here in Oregon you can use old plates but the DMV really gets you for the price, they consider those "custom" plates

grrrr

I have have Haggerty classic car insurance on my elcamino http://www.hagerty.com/, it's modified so it's a little exra (came with a 6 cyl). something like 119 bucks a year for 8,000 replacement value. I've never had anyone inspect my mileage. Never heard of one with unlimited miles. Can you find out the name please ??

Yep, it is not supposed to be used as a commuter car and it is also supposed to stay within 250 miles of your residence. I don't know how the cops would enforce the daily commuter thing.

There's nothing that says it can't be used for a daily cruise to the store to buy beer,milk,bread, smokes whatever.

I have a '03 Tahoe Z71, so the long trips, beach trips and commuting to work are done in it. Besides, it gets better gas mileage!

My insurance was very, very low - no wrecks, claims, violations for over 20 years. But when my teenagers became of driving age, it went up like you wouldn't believe!
