Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.The plates have been reissued to another vehicle?
The plates were issued to the car in 1965. The car was sold and re registered in Nevada in 2012. I brought the car back to Calif in August 2015. When I reregistered the car in Calif the DMV said there was no problem with reissuing the original plates I had in my custody. The Calif DMV now says the plates have to be unused for four years before they will fall off the data base. However everytime there is a inquirey about the plates from anyone including the DMV the four years resets and starts over. So when the DMV inquired they reset the drop off the data base time and therefore denied me use of the original plates. Catch 22
