Just paid $95 for my 1931 Ford...

The kicker is my 1985 Chevrolet Van that is around $200... and combined I drive a total of about 4,000 miles annually.

That's totally nuts! My '85 Mercedes diesel was only $85. Doesn't matter how much or little I drive it. I'm guessing a lot of your van fee is due to the weight of the vehicle.

Have you looked into getting a vintage/classic car plate for your Ford? Might bring that C-note down a bit, but I thing you'll be restricted on how many miles you can drive.

And your next renewal will be $75 higher, or did everyone forget about that already?

The Van is weight rated... it is only 8800 GVW

I wanted one without the side windows and this made it commercial as in a G20

The Model is at the minimum... it's just that my county has added fees.

Are we still paying for the roadside call boxes?

There is a line item for them and I swear 80+% have been removed... at one time you could just about see the next one way in the distance... they are not there any longer... it cost motorists a lot to buy, install and staff... guess we should have waited and saved the expense.

The Model A never got out last year and about a 100 miles the year before.

Since I may move back, I have sold my 67 and 64 GTO's and will be selling 2 Mustangs as well. Gotta reduce costs in retirement in CA.

You made a mistake, those cars are smog exempt. Smog cost $60 for after 76 cars and if they fail a lot more. Plus those old cars aren't that expensive for registration renewal compared to newer cars.
Your a nut to move to this communist state.5 tax raising or bonds passed Nov.8.

I honestly still don't know how large a hit property owners will take but almost across the board the voters approved just about everything...

I've kept a lid on rent increases for years... I did let my tenants know if the Property Taxes increase so will rents...

Some of my tenants are paying the same rent without an increase for 10 years...

I go to market when a unit is vacant... but, for tenants that are excellent the rent will not go up automatically every 12 months... and I have been fortunate to have a lot of very good tenants.

At one time I had 22 vehicles registered and insured... now it is 5... all are still insured.... the State Fees were getting out of hand so I now trailer to shows...

$300 this year for my 1995 Ford 250 diesel pickup. The good thing is that this year model is smog exempt.

The Mustangs are not smog exempt as they are too new. The GTO's yes, but I still sold them and .......... made money.

CA is not communist, it is dominated by extreme left wing politicians though.

Calling CA politics communist is an insult to communism.
