I thought someone might find this useful for researching the registration requirements of their classic Cougar. Click on the pic below, then scroll down to the State you are interested in and click on the folder.
I would still check with your state and or even contact your DMV. I looked at the one for Oregon and it states something different than the veh code book does. I put the special plates on and then removed them and reregistered it with the original plates after getting different information form the state rep. To me it was very confusing and I still get different answers. But it really boiled down to the cops understanding and the three that I asked all agreed that driving my car could be a violation if not in a parade, or to and from a show, (would have to show it is the shortist route and do not stop at Safeway) or a club function (and there is confusion if you have to be a memeber). Just a thought.
