Does anyone here have classic car license plates?

Since NJ has a very restrictive law regarding the use of the car, I would like to ask some questions using DM.

Please let me know.

Thanks

I only know a little. They are called QQ tags, and you can only get them at certain MVC sites.. Flemington MVA being one of the sites (i'm not sure where else). You have to have multiple photos of the car (engine, and a shot from each side).

Ok, NJ only allows those plates on cars that are used for shows or educational purposes.

I wonder how they would know as I'm sure owners drive their cars on sunny cars just for the sake of driving a classic car on a sunny day.

Interesting, my husband owns a 32 yr old Mercedes and he wanted to get QQ plates but never did and I never bothered to ask. He does have it insured through hagerty though - much much cheaper than NJM (like $250/yr)

Are you aware that NJM has 2 types of classic car insurance?

They have regular classic car which for me is about $750 a year. Then they have Restrictive classic car insurance for about $100 a year. With this type you sign a statement that the car will only be driven 60 days a year over a policy year.

Still would like to hear from those who have the QQ plates and drive whenever the sun shines.

I have classic plates on one of my motorcycles. For motorcycles it is just one "Q" instead of two on the car plates. I did have to send in multiple pictures from different angles. They wanted to make sure that it was in "original condition".

I can tell you everything I know (which isn't much). I am only supposed to ride it to or from shows, or to have repairs/tune ups. To be honest, I don't always follow this rule, but how can anyone prove that I'm not on my way to have it worked on.

The plate has a few advantages. You don't need to have it inspected, so you are not required to alter the car/bike to meet current regulations. My antique Harley doesn't have turn signals, reflectors, etc. If you are into antique vehicles, you know that adding those things will decrease the value really fast.

Progressive has a type of policy that lets me value the vehicle, and pay accordingly. I valued the motorcycle at $15k and I pay about $200 per year.
