Historic tags help
 
Im looking into buying a truck that can be registered as historic, however it will be my daily driver. I have checked the DMV website and it said you cant. But I have seen numerous daily drivers with historic tags. Any insight?

I think it depends on how strict the cops want to be and enforce it. I drove my challenger around for 2 years everyday when my old cj5 was torn apart. I was never stopped for running with historic plates. My dart has historic plates, i don't drive it everyday but in the summer i take it out 3 or 4 times a week and have never been stopped.

When I had my YJ tagged historic I was only 'allowed' a certain number of miles to be driven yearly. The requirements, (back then), read 'to be driven only on weekends and/or to and from car shows, etc'. I drove it daily and only got the stink-eye from my insurance when I went over 10k miles in a year.

I typically do under 10k a year of driving so, theoretically you are saying its possible?

I assume you have another vehicle registered in your name because the only vehicle you have can't be tagged historic or street rod. Just F.Y.I

Oh man. I guess I need to get a new catalytic converter.
