The Burgh Island sea tractor, which ferries people back and forth to yonder hotel. What else can I say about this one? It's completely and utterly bonkers.

It featured in a Poirot (David Suchet version) TV episode. They were murdering just about everyone in that hotel, and I believe it now does "Murder" weekends on the strength of it.

That's not a standard OEM exhaust.
Racer, I see why you collect rego/number plates; even in your own State there is plenty of variety.
And I love the year on most of them - is that year of manufacture, first rego or just the current rego?

Standard hot rod VW gear.

The guy might have slipped a Porsche engine under the boot too. Sounded pretty healthy when he fired it up.

Most are YOM (year of manufacture). Classic, antique and collector motor vehicles 25 years old and older can be permanently registered, using an example of what would have been on them when new. Many have been restored, but some are original.

The Woody has a personalized plate, and at the time I took that picture 20 odd years ago, was the current passenger car state graphic. YOM plates generally are from the series issued at the year used, not personalized, and when that car was new the state didn't offer personalized plates.

Currently the cost for YOM permanent registration is equivalent to about three years of renewal for annually expiring registration.

My plate collection includes a number of mint, never used plates for the era of my 72 Camaro, and a couple of my Datsun Z cars.

My brown 72 Z had the original plates, but they were not in good condition, so I had one reproduced (YOM registration only requires a rear plate).

The front plate was bent and had a small tear across the upper left bolt hole. Repairable, but a couple hundred bucks to pay someone to do it.



The rear plate was flat, but the Scotchlite reflective base was degraded from UV exposure. Also repairable, but about$120 plus post both ways.



I found a place that reproduces license plates for $100, free shipping. Saved myself a few bucks and only a sharp eye can tell the difference. I added the NOS year registration tab, a month is not required as it never expires.

The reproduced plate.
