here in ND, antique/classic plates are a one time fee of $100 for a vanity plate, or a one time fee of $10 for the standard antique plate. only requirement is the vehicle must be at least 40 years old.

IIRC, here in Texas, you can apply for antique plates if the vehicle is 25 years or older.

I think 25 years is the law here in Ohio too. But if you can find a set of plates from the model year of your antique vehicle you can use them instead of historical plates. After getting them approved by the DMV.

That had to be a fun ride.

i laugh about the number of folks saying that good gas mileage is a reason to buy a new ________. When I had my 73 F-250, it got 8 MPG with my foot in the 4-BBL, 11 MPG loaded, and 12.5 MPG empty. With those numbers, it was easy to figure out gas usage whem planning a job or a trip with that truck due to the loaded and empty MPG being so close to each other.

Now, when i use my 92 F-150, it gets 19.5, empty\no trailer, and about 12.5 loaded\with trailer running flat lands. Kind of a PITA when planning a haul of 300 miles total where part of it is in the mountains. I miss my older, consistently crappy mileage truck.

I am also a firm believer in the following. If you have to ask what kind of fuel mileage it gets, walk away. You won't be able to afford it.

I know how to solve your fuel economy dilemma....

Funny part is, I just posted that after we get settled in Erie, i am going truck shopping, and that I will be looking for an extended cab diesel.

trust me Cinder, I too believe that real trucks don't have spark plugs.

Default 2015 Challenger Hellcat

This one gets my attention but I feel it will be way out of my price range and I doubt the Shelby GT500 will tremble in fear like the first paragraph states.

IDK, reported HP should make shelby tremble. Mustang would be a bit lighter.

Rumored costs are UGLY, and that's not including my most hated fee, dealer bonus money.

I hear you.
The Hellcat will weigh a chubby 4,439 lbs to the Shelby GT500's 3980, more than a bit lighter to me and I will believe it when I see the Hellcat with more than the 662 hp 631 torque of the GT500 but that is a question mark at this time.
In the 1/4 mile the unknown torque management is the wild card for the Hellcat.
Specs and price are due in the summer but I'm guessing $70 to $75 K with an iron clad don't mess with the motor warranty.

We shall see.

I read about a Jeep Wagoneer with a Ferrari engine that was part of the Harrah's collection until Harrah died and it was sold at auction because it lacked collector value .

Steve McQueen was reported in the newspaper to own a VW bug with a Porsche engine . They said he liked to go zooming past a powerful car tooting the horn . Edit : Oops, now that I think about it, it may have been Paul Newman !

One guy took the " V-6 " emblem off of his Honda Accord 4-door to add to the surprise when he blew past slowpokes .
