Heard that last year too. Thats is the cops way of harrassing people that are out cruising Woodward before the cruise. Other than that, I have never had a problem with the year of car plates and mine has been on the car for a few years now. Also, I think I got a discount on my Chevelle insurance by having that plate.Only concern I've ever heard was this year at woodward. I was told that the Royal Oak police were ticketing cars w/ historic plates during the weeknights before the official cruise because the plates are speciifed for parades use only, and the parade was scheduled for Saturday. Don't know if it was true, but that's the rumor.
