I bought an RMB Riley back in 1990 that had black and yellow plates.
I exported it to Alabama from a California car dealer.
I declined to pay some sort of California tax.
The dealer said that was OK but the car
could never again be registered in California.

I consider the plates to be just another O.E.M. part
I don't have a current  requirement for
just like my +.40 1622 Mahle piston set.
It is probably unlikely that I will move to California
and register my Riley there. I also do not
have a car with a 1622 engine.
Therefore I would  like to see the plates and pistons
go to good use and  at the same time
microscopically clean up my garage.

You can look at see the tags at
Does the "63" in the upper right hand corner mean they
were issued in 1963?

Do you have any advice?
