The California DMV has announced it will be taking pre-orders for legacy plate designs from the 1950's, 60's, and 70's.
The plates can be ordered for any model automobile, commercial vehicle, motorcycle, or trailer.
The styles available include the black lettering over yellow seen in the 1950's, yellow lettering over black seen in the 1960's, and the yellow lettering over blue that was originally available in the 1970's.
The plates cost $50 for non-personalized or personalized plates, but the law specifies that 7,500 applications must be reached by January 1, 2015. If 7,500 applications are not received by then, any fees paid will be refunded to the applicant.
