    I found out this year i can get historical plates on my truck, one of the requirements is to prove the build date. Where would i look for that? I also don't have the glovebox sticker either and my doors are swaped.

    its on a 82 c10

    I bet you would have to do some type of vin search, like carfax or something.

    Well in Ohio it is by the vehicle year so a title should do for the date. Unless they are anal and need a month and day?

    Here is what I found on your DMV site.

    A Classic Car is a vehicle included in the 1963 list of classic cars filed with MVD by the Classic Car Club of America.
    A Historic vehicle is any of the following:
    • Manufactured 25 years or more prior to the date of application
    • A reconstructed vehicle retaining (at a minimum) the basic original body style as manufactured 25 years or more prior to the date of application
    • Included on a list of historic vehicles filed with MVD by a recognized historical or classical vehicle organization

    hmm got a link to where you found that?

    and all i need is it to be 25 years old :haha: im a moron, i read it wrong.

    $25 initial application fee/ $10 annual renewal. Vehicle must bear a model date of original manufacture that is at least 25 years old. May require a vehicle inspection. Also available for motorcycles.
    For plates that are mailed there is a postage and handling charge of $3.00. Also available with a disability symbol (including motorcycles).

    I was going to get antique plates for my truck, then found out some interesting information from my insurance company.
    If it were registered as an antique, they would not cover it if I were to park in a parking lot unattended, or kept it outside of the garage.
    That is more of a pain that what it would have been worth, so I didn't do it. I'm not saying all insurance companies do that, but it would be worth checking out.
