    I looked into that same thing when I got mine - even if I lost my argument over a detail like "carrying people or property" (how rediculous of a useless statement could they have come up with) I didn't really see anything to be worried about penalty wise.

    When it comes to vehicle laws I typically just do what I want and deal with whatever consequences later. Sometimes ya win, sometimes ya lose lol. I have an old F150 with an antique plate that gets used for Lowe’s runs and is currently hooked to my boat. I can’t say I’ve ever had an issue with it having a classic plate and neither did my dad when he daily drove it for several years that way. I also live somewhat in the country and don’t see a cop on most trips. Good news is that there is a state of emergency and you could take a road trip on a quad if you wanted to right now lol. Might have some explaining to do after, but in state of emergency registration laws go out the window.

    I just learned there is a military vehicle plate in PA. Looks like it follows the same rules as classic/antique, just provides a different plate I guess. I wonder what it means when it says "including a trailer". Does a military vehicle plate on the vehicle also act as registration for a trailer without a tag, or can the plate be obtained for a trailer in addition to a vehicle?

    I run antique tags on EVERYTHING 25 years and older. There's no reason not to unless you're going to tow with it.

    1990 mustang, supergcharged with lightning bolts - antique tags
    1990 miata that is dressed up like lightning mcqueen - antique tags
    1995 jeep wrangler lifted on big tires and kc lights and all - antique tags
    1995 miata in full livery with a massive wing - antique tags
    1979 Trans am - getting antique tags when it's inspection is due (didn't want to wait cause we bought in the spring).

    I've had no issues. I drive them all. they're all hugely attention getting.

    Classic tags to me are worthless. Antique - no more inspection, emissions, and permanent registration is 100% worth it.
    taking unsafe rigs to a whole other level

    My RC sees so few miles - I don't think it's exceeded a thousand miles in ANY year, since I got it road 'worthy' (broadly speaking....) in 2013 - so it's always emission exempt.

    If it EVER becomes a wheeler (or I win the lottery, and Kounts Kustoms gets hold of it ), how would the "antique" plate affect THAT?

    '92 Dodge Ramcharger - 4 1/2" lift, 35's, 318 Magnum... a work in progress...

    The way your use your RC now would be fine for an antique plate.
