are those black/yeller plates legit?
Those are the Legacy Plates issued by the CA DMV after an exhaustive survey to see if there was any interest, The survey wanted to know who would want a re-issue for the black on yellow plate. the yellow on black plate, and the ever so ugly yellow on blue plate. The yellow on black plate was the only plate to get enough votes. The only thing about the plate that resembles the original issue is the color. The plate has to conform to modern designs in terms of reflective properties etc. And the plate may not in any fashion be issued using the same format as the original. An original yellow on black plate used the format 123 ABC. The Legacy Plate uses a unique format or it can be personalized.
