Is Your Car a Classic or Historic?

What kind of car do you have – “historic” or “classic”?

1960 Chevy El Camino

1940s Wolseley

You’ve owned it forever or you’re eyeing it online or at a car show — one of the great muscle cars of the 60s and 70s or a real vintage beauty from the 40s.The State of Arizona MVD has 3 classic and historic specialty license plates, each for a different type of vehicle.

AZ Classic car lic. plateAZ Historic Vehicle lic. plateAZ Horseless Carriage tag

To qualify as a “Classic Car,” it must be on the “Approved Classics” list of The Classic Car Club of America. The club defines a car a classic as a “‘Fine’ or ‘Distinctive’ automobile, American or foreign built, produced between 1925 and 1948.” The 1940s Wolseley pictured above is a great example.

A “Historic Vehicle” is at least 25 years old. The classic 1960 Chevy El Camino shown above is a perfect example. Though it may be called a “classic,” as many muscle cars are, in AZ, it’s considered a “Historic Vehicle.” Note: the 25 year or older rule may not apply to your vehicle.*

1915 Ford Model “T”

Now, a “Horseless Carriage” is a vehicle that was made in 1915 or older like the 1915 Ford Model “T” on the right.

Another thing you need to know before applying for one of the classic or historic tags, is that your insurance company MUST insure it properly as a classic vehicle to be exempt from an emissions test and must have a letter from the Insurance company saying they meet AZ requirements for collectible insurance.


Classic cars are not meant to be driven on the street regularly except to go to a car show. *If your car is around the 25 year old mark, you need to contact your insurance company to make sure it qualifies as a historic vehicle.

Please give us a call and we can help you with any questions about collectible vehicles and their proper registration.

The History of Flag Day

Poster commemorating the 140th Flag Day
on June 14, 1917

Flag Day is celebrated in many countries around the world – sometimes on it’s their independence day sometimes on the day the flag was adopted.

The United States celebrates it on June 14 the day the flag was adopted by the Second Continental Congress in 1777.

June 14th is also the United States Army’s birthday which was adopted as the “American Continental Army” by consensus position in the Committee of the Whole on June 14, 1775.

The city of Hartford, CT was the first to observe the day in 1861 with a patriotic program praying for the success of the Federal arms and the preservation of Union. Unfortunately, it did not become a tradition.

In 1885, grade school teacher, Bernard J. Cigrand, known as the “Father of Flag Day,” held the first recognized formal observance of Flag Day at the Stony Hill School. The restored school now houses the National Flag Day Americanism Center in Waubeka, WI.

Starting in the late 1880s, Cigrand traveled the nation promoting patriotism, respect for the flag and the need for an annual observance of the day the flag was adopted.

Yankee Doodle Dandy

He became president of the American Flag Day Association and later of the National Flag Day Society. He had presented 2,188 speeches on patriotism and the flag in his lifetime.

President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation in 1916 that officially established June 14 as Flag Day. National Flag Day was established in 1949 by an Act of Congress and signed by Harry Truman.

The week of June 10-16, 2012 is National Flag Week, during which the President issues a proclamation urging U.S. citizens to fly the American flag for the whole week.

Remember this song: “You’re a Grand Old Flag” from “Yankee Doodle Dandy” with James Cagney in 1942? I remember singing it as part of a patriotic pageant in elementary school.

Lyrics:
You’re a grand old flag
You’re a high-flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You’re the emblem of the land I love,
The home of the free and the brave.
Every heart beats true for the red, white and blue,
And there’s never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag!

AZ Plate Helps Homeless Women Vets

You wouldn’t think it, but the statistics are staggering.

Women veterans are 4 times more likely to become homeless than their male veteran counterparts and non-veteran women. ~American Journal of Public Health

They’re not your typical homeless person. Their needs are different. Besides PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), most also suffered sexual harassment, if not abuse and many of them are moms, some single parents. The VA has had to make major adjustments to help these women.

Your family wants the person back that they sent off to war. They’ll never get that person back.

In this other video from the Military News Channel, shows what women vets returning from service abroad are going through in trying to get back into civilian life.

You can help female Veterans of Arizona by purchasing the new Women Veterans license plate. It’s available to anyone and can be personalized (maximum of 6 characters).

$25 initial application fee/ $25 annual renewal. $17 goes to a special account in the Arizona Veterans’ Donation Fund to assist homeless women veterans. Please call us at Prompt Titles & Registrations so we can order your plate. 602-957-0450. ($5 convenience fee applies – void with a Military ID.)

Also available with a disability symbol,  ask about it when you call.
