Guest 1FASTC4 Posted January 12, 2007 Share Posted January 12, 2007 Hey all! Has anyone heard anything about the collector car exemption laws coming on board in AZ. I'm referring to the recent news that the EPA, or whoever, approved such a measure for AZ but there is no laws currently on the books.I was at MVD in the last two days and nobody there has heard anything.A lucky break for me!: When I ordered custom plates for my 'vette and dakota a couple of years ago MVD put 1FASTC4 on my dakota and FSHNBUM on my 'vette. I went to MVD at the time to correct this but they told me the only way to switch them would be to sell the vehicles, retain the personal plates, then buy the vehicles back while assigning each plate to the appropriate vehicle. As rediculous as it sounds, this was their rule and they were resolute.While at MVD to register a couple of my work vans yesterday, I asked the information desk clerk again, just for the heck of it, about switching custom plates around on my 'vette and dakota. This time around he said "No problem, it costs $12.00 per plate." Ya baby! So, I went to the window when my number was called and did just that. It took two clerks(they were both really nice) to figure out how to do it in the system but they got it done. The clerk told me I would have to pay for the registration on the expired vette tags. I said "No problem"Then she looked at my registration and in her system and said, "oh no, wait a sec. You have an emission test required on the corvette in order to register the car, we can't switch the plate until you it passes emissions."Knowing full well that my car will now never pass emissions(mods), and that indeed it was my year to be tested,(I just wanted to switch the plates) I said "What ??!" I was referring only to the fact that they couldn't switch my plates. A watching supervisor overheard and walked over to inquire what the problem was. The clerk pointed out the emission requirement on her monitor and again said she couldn't switch the plates without the emission test. Again, referring to the fact that they couldn't switch the plates and not about the emission test I said in a disappointed voice,"Aww, that's not right."The supervisor thought I was talking about having to be tested so he told the clerk, "That's always wrong in there(their computer). Change it to next year."So, my vette, which couldn't even come close to passing emissions, is now legally registered w/ 1FASTC4! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
