Thanks

Ha, everyone says that. 85lb Goldendoodle
Golden?? I think you were had... looks more like a "Chocodoodle" to me! :wink:

I had a 1998 Camaro and can't believe how "modern" I thought it looked at the time! Nice, clean car... and in 8 years, she'll be considered a "classic!"
:smile:

BTW, the miles doesn't surprise me... if I owned a sports car in Pitt, I wouldn't drive it much either, given the unpredictable length of winters each year.
:frown:

Haha, yea. He's a 2nd gen goldendoodle. 75% poodle 25% golden retriever. So more poodle look than anything. Almost 4 now and grey hair is taking over. Was jet black when we got him.

It's already a classic by PennDot standards. Antique in 8 yrs! Crazy

"The Antique Motor Vehicle plate is for vehicles that are:
Over 25 years old (based on the year of manufacture).

The Classic Motor Vehicle tag is for vehicles that:
Were made at least 15 years before the year you apply for the tag."


Yea, my dad has a 2002, bought new. Only ~10,xxx mi on it.

8 years!?!?! Wow!! I guess they assume no one keeps cars longer than 5 yrs max these days, huh??

So how old does a car have to be in Penn to be considered a "relic?" LOL!

All about making money one way or another.

I wouldn't mind putting a classic plate on it. $75

True that.

Most 1st gen RL's have bad rust, especially around rear wheel wells. It's all how owners take care of their vehicles though. Laziness and the view of "it'll just get dirty tomorrow" plagues this area. Can't spend $5 on a wash once a week in the winter.
