The classic black plates that were on cars from 1963 to 1969 are back in production. Currently CA has 10 Select Plates and the black license plates are the newest addition.
You may be noticing them on new cars, but the good news is anyone can order these iconic plates. The new plates cost $50 and anyone can order them, regardless of your car's age. They can also be personalized.
The modern plates will use the same mold as the originals, discovered at Folsom Prison, where they were originally made. The new ones feature a reflective yellow paint on the letters and numbers, which is required by law.
You can place your order online at the CA DMV's website.
