    The key word here is "eventually". :) These things take time. As for ham plates I dont have them, I prefer to stay anonymous when Im driving. My .02c worth. :D

    Maybe the state of California should allow them into the hands of license plate collectors (many of which are hams) as error plates!

    Pennsylvania looked into issuing two plates, which isn't federally mandatory, when they last replated in 1999.

    They ditched the idea (PA hasn't used front plates since 1952) because it would double the expense of registering 12+ million vehicles, and it would also double the time it would take to replate those vehicles, which still took over 3 years even with one plate.

    A replate is now mandatory every 10 years, so we're up for a replate next year, and I doubt PA will do front & rear plates.

    PA's red light cameras (mostly found in Philadelphia) take pictures from the rear of the car.

    19 states currently only issue rear plates:
    AL, AZ, AR, DE, GA, FL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MI, MS, NM, NC, OK, PA, SC, TN, WV.

    New York ham plates cost?

    Hi there
    New Yorkers, what about your plates, as to cost and how are the numbers and letters presented on the plate? K1SJ ,CA.
