Heckflosse! – This is What the 1950’s (or 1960’s) Looked Like – Woman Drives Past DMV in Mercedes 220S Fintail

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

I’m thinking both the DMV and this W-111 fintail MB both are from the early 1960’s…

…but they might have been birthed at the the end of the 1950’s, IDK.

Anyway, as seen in 2017, and our 3-star rated DMV is still going strong, despite all those plans for hated Redevelopment. In fact, both this ride and this building outlasted the Redevelopment Commish itself, go figure. (And ask me and I’ll tell you how to pass the behind-the-wheel test, as I’ve told so many others, at Frisco’s solitary DMV. (Oh, your friend told you Daly City DMV has an easier test? Well, your friend is a LIAR!) There’s no trick to it, there’s just One Simple Trick.)

Here’s Why the 1960’s are Better Than the 1950’s or the 1970’s: DMV’s “California Legacy License Plate Program”

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

Here are the deets from last year about the “California Legacy License Plate Program.”

Well, now it’s 2015 and The People Have Spoken – only yellow-on-black, 1960’s-style retro-style license plates will be issued by the DMV, so sorry to you, fans of the 1950’s-style black-on-yellow and 1970’s-style yellow-on-blue plates. You’ll just have to bide your time.

Here are all the deets from your California Department of Motor Vehicles:

“Legislation introduced the California Legacy License Plate program offering vehicle owners the opportunity to purchase replicas of California license plates similar to those issued in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Only the 1960’s plate reached the required 7,500 orders before January 1, 2015, and will be the only one implemented. The 1950’s and 1970’s plates did not achieve the required 7,500 minimum orders. 

Legacy License plates can be ordered for any year model automobile, commercial vehicle, motorcycle, or trailer. The Legacy License Plate Program will not replace the current Year of Manufacture (YOM) license plate program.

The DMV is accepting pre-orders, for the 1960 Legacy plate, until the plates are ready to be manufactured. A pre-order form California Legacy License Plate Pre–Order Form (REG 17L) (PDF) is available for these plates. The completed form and $50 payment must be mailed to the address provided on the form. Payment can only be made by check, money order, or cashier’s check made payable to Department of Motor Vehicles. Pre–orders will NOT be processed at DMV Field offices or Auto Club offices.
