I,m sure there are different rules depending on the state but in PA. the pros would be you wouldn,t have to get the car inspected anymore. The cons are DAYLIGHT driving only and there is a yearly mileage limit.

I have an '86 with PA antique plates. No restriction as far as driving it at night (as long as it has legal lighting). Penn Dot no longer requires pictures when it's registered. Ok to drive anywhere, not to be used as a daily driver. My neighbor has 4 cars with antique title/plates and virtually drives them regularly. at least one is a true antique. I do have two other "normal" vehicles. Thought I resurrect this thread for my first post in the forum.
